Circolo Fotografico La Gondola con un contributo critico di Giuliano Sergio

The Tre Oci / Tre mostre exhibition model, a success from its first presentation, returns this year with a visual pathway intended to compare contemporary languages with the great tradition of Venetian photography. The purpose of the project is to further reflect on going beyond photographic genres in search of greater expressive freedom. A common theme unites the three different directions within the walls of the Casa dei Tre Oci: photography intended to restore the meaning of the things seen. Photography that reasons, that measures, that compares with reality aware that it has an interpretative and never realistic function.
On the ground floor
The wild wind of photography. Exhibition conceived and curated by Italo Zannier. A genuine journey through the overcrowded world of images that is immediately transformed into a harmonious pathway generated by the magic of that which the pictures recount. Italo Zannier seems to almost have a need to create order in the history of photographic production, leaving the podium to the content conveyed, to that which is seen. For once it is as if the photographers remain in the background. That which prevails is the power of the light, the surprise of the appearance. The magic of photography.
On the piano nobile
Evocations of Capri 100 years after Diefenbach. Photographs by Olivo Barbieri and Francesco Jodice. The two contemporary artists were invited by the Fondazione Capri to carry out a photographic mission on the Neapolitan island starting from the great paintings by the German artist Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach. The aim was to create a double, site-specific exhibition pathway, using different artistic languages. Jodice and Barbieri’s contribution is disorienting. The Isle of Capri becomes an occasion for reasoning on the contemporary and on a way of producing landscape that gradually becomes feeling.
On the second floor
Time. Circolo Fotografico La Gondola members’ exhibition / People / The suspended image. The historic photography club, La Gondola, is this year accompanying its usual end of year members’ exhibition with two other exhibitions. Time is intended as a reflection on the definition of time, relative to modernity, memory and its connection with space. Special guest is Joe Oppedisano, with four of his photos. Persone (People) is a special section curated by Giuliano Sergio, featuring historic prints from the Circolo’s archive and focusing on the portrait. L’immagine sospesa (The suspended image) shows works by the winners of the Portfolio reading held at the Tre Oci in March 2013.
