Carmen Mitrotta Call to Faith Photo Limited Edition

US$5,574.97

About

The feeling of photography is very similar to that of a painting. The print is made on hahnemuhle cotton paper and then mounted on aluminum. Limited edition of 3 copies. Number 2. The photo can be sold with or without a frame. Call to Faith “This project was inspired by watching a group of Muslim teenagers playing in a park. I was attracted not only by their outfit which was so different in comparison to Italian teenagers, but also by the way they played with their appearance and style comparable to any other teenager. I asked myself: how can a solid religious tradition exist in our fast moving lifestyle? I wanted to describe this integration creating a photo series using the image language of a fashion photo shoot. “Call to faith” shows a teenager who remains closely tied to its belief and tradition and - at the same time - playing with contemporary fashion and style. The object of the “veil”, both metaphysical and real, separates individual beings from knowledge and perception of reality, therefore becoming an obstacle between different cultures. In my work, I try to give the veil a new connotation: by chosing strong colors and a transparant tissue, I give the traditional veil a pop connotation. It symbolizes now the connection between different worlds and cultures.” Biography Exihibitions Group Exihibition • unseen, Art Fair ,Amsterda • 2016 Photo London, Art Fair London, UK • 2016 Art Paris , Art Fair Paris , France • 2015 Kunst 15, Art Fair Zurich, Switzerland • 2015 “Dritte Runde”, Bildhalle, Kilchberg/Zurich • 2015 Photo Basel, Basel, Switzerland, • 2015 MIA Art Fair, Milan • In 2014 “Death food for new worlds” : Gran Sasso Science Institute (Aquila), Photo Gallery (Pistoia), L’impronta (Cosenza), Sala Fenice (Trieste), Camera Doppia (Torino),VisionQuest (Genova), Polifemo Fotografia(Milan), Archivio Fotografico Italiano (GorlaMaggiore), Massenzio Arte (Rome) • 2013 Museo di arte contemporanea, Lissone • 2013 “Premiato studio Promessi sposi”, Spazio Tadini, Milan • 2013 “My generation is different”, Palazzo del Broletto, Pavia Solo Exihibion 2014 “Pezzi da Museo” a cura di Roberto Mutti, Museo Bagatti Valsecchi, Milano 2015 “ ...A volte esco di casa con il cielo sotto braccio “ Gallerie Foto-Forum , Bolzano-Bozen 2015 “Dead food for new worlds” , Palazzo Leone da Perego , Legnano 2015 “Dead food for new worlds” , Galleria Bolzani , Milano 2017 Boutique Hermes in rue de Serves from 19 July to 21 December, Paris
