The exhibition, curated by Charlotte Cotton with the scientific direction of Gabriella Belli, showcases more than 30 images and still lifes dedicated to the world of fashion and selected from the archive of over two decades of the artist’s photographic career.
“Me and Fashion” is a dynamic interaction between the artist’s photographs and the architecture and decorations from the 17th and 18th century of the building’s halls. The conversation takes place in what it used to be the private apartments of the Mocenigo family, characterised by a succession of intimate and majestic spaces with which Brigitte Niedermair dialogues.
The artist responds to each room’s specific atmosphere with her fashion and still life photographic tableaux, creating a powerful installative action. Rich in formal appeal and elegance, Brigitte Niedermair’s pictures create a dialogue with the atmosphere and works of each room. The artist selected and removed various paintings from the Moceningo collection, substituting them with her images, which interact with the space in a poetic and, at times, provocative way, generating a reflection on the theme of identity and gender.
