Collective exhibition and panel at Les Rencontres d’Arles Photographie

My work “Siciliae” will be part of the collective exhibition “Atelier Reflexions Masterclass 2002 2012 – Une aventure artistique” curated by Gabriel Bauret and Giovanna Calvenzi.


On the occasion of the 43rd International Festival of Rencontres d’Arles Photographie (02/07-23/09 2012), Reflexions Masterclass outlines its decennial course through an atelier exhibition at the Ateliers Electriques SNCF and with a dedicated book, not a simple catalogue but a visible and usable memory of the intercultural and multidisciplinary contributions marking this quest: a broad panorama of the most significant photographic works carried out by its present and graduate students as well as previously unpublished contributions from modern-day thinkers, critics and experts who have been closely involved in this adventure in fieri.

The exhibition is celebrating the ten years activity of Reflexions Masterclass founded by Giorgia Fiorio and unfolded over the years in collaboration with Gabriel Bauret. The exhibition conveys the spirit of this experience, centered on research and dialogue, in the exchange of cultures and visual sensitivity.

Two axes structure the space of the exhibition, articulating over two separated panels facing each other, the number ten marking the rhythm of the installation: an ensemble of photographs encompassing the visual transcription of ten THEMES assigned over ten years different sessions of Reflexions Masterclass and a selection of PERSONAL PROJECTS by ten photographers having participated in the masterclass since its creation in 2002. A total of some forty artists are represented here, among many more having participated and shared this same very unique adventure.

The trees symbol of Reflexions Masterclass will welcome from the outside the visitors towards a minimalist and sober ambulatory, a laboratory for creation and dialogue.
