Marina Caneve

The photographs of Marina Caneve (*1988) feature the mountain scenery of the Dolomites. However, her gaze is not directed at the fascination that the beauty of nature evokes, but at the instability of the mountains and the hazards they pose. Her work entitled “Are They Rocks or Clouds?“ refers to man-made natural catastrophes in the Dolomites. The fragility of the region as a whole is illustrated by the artist’s own photographs and the inclusion of historical documents and anecdotes as well as scientific findings.

Cesare Fabbri

For his decade-long study “The Flying Carpet“ Cesare Fabbri (*1971) focused on his two home regions of Emilia-Romagna and Sardinia. His black-and-white photographs depict a tranquil world where everyday objects are transformed into magical images through the artist’s discerning eye and his framing of reality.

Francesco Neri

The vast project entitled “Trophy and Treasure“ by Francesco Neri (*1982) revolves around the artist’s own family in which, for generations, medicine and hunting have played a pivotal role. His parents’ house in Faenza in Emilia-Romagna provides the setting for these photographs. The close ties that exist between people (specifically, in this particular project, his own family) and landscape and nature are the defining elements of Francesco Neri’s pictorial universe.

Teresa Giannico

Teresa Giannico (*1985) scrutinises the documentary value of photography through a process aimed at reconstructing reality. For her groups of photographic works entitled “Rogoredo“ and “Lay Out“ she collected photographs of typical Italian interiors and indoor spaces. Rearranged in dioramas, photographed, and printed in small and large formats, the new perspective creates a perfectly illusionary space and depicts a precarious and unbalanced world.
