The Ricetto per l’Arte of Almese inaugurates, on Saturday 12 June at 5.00 pm, the VIII Edition of the Biennial of photography “Resistant Materials” with the project “Astolfo sulla Luna” an overview of the daily experience of mental discomfort, curated by Total Art and Il Terzo Occhio photography.
Starting from the metaphor of Ludovico Ariosto’s story that sees Astolfo embark on a visionary journey from the Earth to the Moon to search for the ampoule that contains Orlando’s hindsight, 26 photographers have ventured to trace a comprehensive vision on the universe of mental illness, describing through the language of images the point of view of who is inside the “labyrinth” and who is apparently outside, trying to paradoxically overturn roles, an exchange of points of view, the madman who imagines the universe of the wise, the wise that of the madman. Chronicles and stories in images of ordinary marginalization but also lightness and irony in interpreting such a complex and delicate theme, allusive images, frames that invite you to reflect even on the surreal stereotyped representations of madness.
The exhibition will be open until June 27 on the following days and times (with free admission):
Wednesday: 10.00 – 12.30
Friday: 10.00 – 12.30 / 15.00 – 18.00
Saturday and Sunday: 15.00 – 18.30
