The Rooms of Photography, a joint initiative of Marsilio Arte and the Giorgio Cini Foundation, announce a spring full of news and events.

On the first floor of the exhibition space, the Out of Focus exhibition opens to the public, presenting the last ten years of photographic research by the artist Patrick Mimran through a series of unpublished works, never exhibited in Italy.


Until August 11, 2024, the public will be able to admire his thirty-three large black and white photographs, most associated with three smaller ones in color. Born in Paris in 1956, Patrick Mimran is a multidisciplinary artist . Since the 1980s he has created works and installations using almost all possible means and supports, ranging from photography to technology, from music to multimedia. In Out of Focus, the artist worked mainly on the lack of sharpness , not only of the outlines, but of the entire image.


If initially the image appears abstract, the more you look at it the more you will grasp those details that bring it closer to reality . This contrasts with the sharpness of the smaller format color images that accompany and define the large photographs. If the photographic tool was designed to represent reality as it is, Mimran seems to use it in reverse. For the artist, the best way to capture a subject , living or inanimate, is not to represent it as faithfully as possible, but to move away from it to the point of abstraction. «We find ourselves in the dimension of the unconscious, in a perpetual iconographic flow of indefinable figures , which challenge the public eye to trace the original geometry» explains Denis Curti, curator of Le Stanze della Fotografia .
