BOATS WITH NO SEA

Exif_JPEG_PICTURE

Boats can remain in the harbor without sailors. Boats can be abandoned at the mercy of marine currents. But a sea-less boat must make people think. A ship with no sea attracts attention and suggests questions about its dry fate. Why does it lie there on dry land after a lifetime in the water? Who was its captain? Who were its sailors? And its passengers? The camera lens records the fate of these boats with no sea and tries to give them back a poetic fate. The camera lens imagines new ports and new sea routes for them. How many lives could these ships with no sea save?

ME & MR. BRAINWASH

Mr. Brainwash in Paris, June 2006 72

The first time I’ve run into a Mr. Brainwash stencil I was in Paris with my wife. I was amused by the image of that man in a hat carrying a movie camera not far from a big size OBEY Angela Davis portrait. I took a couple of shots of Mr. Brainwash’s stencil. I like it. Two years later Mr. Brainwash would become a world famous street artist with his first personal exhibition in LA, Life Is Beautiful (2008). Almost thirteen years later, I have met by chance Mr. Brainwash in person, in front of Deodato Art Gallery, the  location he chose for his first Italian solo exhibition, Milan Is Beautiful. We said hello. We shook hands. And I told him about the discovery of the stencil in Paris in 2006. Very naturally Mr. Brainwash lent himself to an impromptu photo session in the street. Five shots – only one slightly blurred. Then each on his way…

ROMANTICKISS BY TD

RomanticKISS by Davide Tinelli, Milano, February 12, 2019_01 b&amp;w 72

Observing the series of advertising posters modified directly in the street by artist TD it would be too easy to think about the music of KISS. But TD’s anarchist/punk approach suggests instead we combine his posters with Tricky’s urban rhythms. Armed with photocopies and a glue stick, TD transforms the dreamy boundaries of the aesthetics of Romanticism into a real provocation against the art system, which vacuumed the art born in the streets. Gene Simmons’s tongue caresses the vision of the past of modernity, then spits on it with the arrogance typical of punk. In front of a dog pound or in front of the city prison, TD’s RomanticKISS appears to rekindle the movement of Art.
