Il formidabile artista Mustafa Sabbagh (celebri sono le rarefatte atmosfere da lui ritratte su foto che ricordano le meravigliose luci e ombre dei dipinti fiamminghi, suggestioni barocche, espressioniste, connessi all’ idea del grottesco (in cui la sensualità è una energia emancipante e rivoluzionaria) sarà protagonista il 20marzo 2013 alle ore 16:00 durante Esxence, evento di profumeria artistica che si terrà dal 20 al 23marzo 2014 a Milano presso il Museo del Design della Triennale at the Triennale Design Museum, nella presentazione “Conversation about the images” unita,mente al giornalista ed esperto Ermano Picco(lagardenianellocchiello.com).

“COME CLOSER”: THE SYNCHRONICITY OF A RENDEZVOUS BETWEEN NU-BE & MUSTAFA SABBAGH

Come closer”, categorical imperative and synchronicity of a rendezvous. A moment and it’s emotion, mystery and poetry at once. The olfactive design by Nu-be meets the art by Mustafa Sabbagh, joins on film and talks about desire, seduction and darkness. Rush, lyricism, viscerality, pulsional movement.

An orgy.

The powerful and delicate, ephemeral and ever-lasting sensuality catches on film subtle and underground energies. Ancestral memories from a coral tale celebrating the body, its dark side, the most real, human and its beauty.

An invite to travel, open oneself, dive into the unknown and insinuate into elemental universes: Sulphur, Lithium, Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Helium and Mercury, the scents by Nu-be or rather experiences to smell, live and find out for oneself.

“COME CLOSER”: IL SINCRONISMO DI UN INCONTRO TRA NU-BE & MUSTAFA SABBAGH

The synchronicity of a rendezvous between Nu-Be & Mustafa Sabbagh, backstage photo from “Come closer” by Mustafa Sabbagh

Come closer”, imperativo categorico e sincronismo di un incontro. Un attimo ed è subito emozione, mistero e poesia. Il design olfattivo di Nu-be incontra l’ arte di Mustafa Sabbagh, si fonde su pellicola e parla di desiderio, seduzione e oscurità. Impeto, lirismo, visceralità, movimento pulsionale.

Un’ orgia.

La sensualità, potente e delicata, effimera e imperitura, cattura su pellicola energie sottili e sotterranee. Memorie ancestrali di un racconto corale che celebra il corpo, il suo lato oscuro, il più vero, umano e la sua bellezza.

Un’ invito a viaggiare, aprirsi, immergersi nell’ ignoto e insinuarsi in universi elementali: Zolfo, Litio, Carbonio, Idrogeno, Ossigeno, Elio e Mercurio, le fragranze di Nu-be o meglio esperienze da sentire, vivere e provare sulla propria pelle.

É stato protagonista dell’ ultima edizione dell’ evento fieristico di moda White, che si è tenuto a Milano presso Superstudio, “Shades of a gentleman”, il progetto espositivo da me ideato e curato che ha unito arte e moda: l’ arte del brillante artista Mustafa Sabbagh, le intense, rarefatte atmosfere da lui catturate su foto che raccontano l’ eleganza del gentleman come stile di vita e quella di un gentleman, l’ iconico e brillante Cesare Cunaccia. Il rinomato editor at large of Vogue Italia e L’ Uomo Vogue, eclettica individualità, unica, incisiva, raffinata personalità sopra le righe, è apparso anche nelle vesti di designer dell’ oggetto che idealmente lo rappresenta: gli occhiali, prodotto esclusivo realizzato in corno naturale dalla galleria ottica di Venezia Boudoir di Alessandro De Lorenzo. Un piccolo capolavoro di artigianalità, prodotto dall’ azienda Veneta Farben 1962 di Laggio di Cadore che racchiude in sé materiali di alta qualità, ha un packaging accattivante, una piccola scatola di legno che contiene un astuccio di lana, scelta personalmente da Cunaccia e un sofisticato design che concretizza felicemente il paradigma Brummeliano “Less is more”. La collezione di occhiali è stata esposta unitamente alle creazioni ed ai tessuti dell’ Atelier Santerasmo Cinque di Milano di Alessandro Leonardi e le calzature di Santoni che hanno ritratto l’ inafferrabile, l’ eleganza maschile, la sartorialità – racchiusa nelle creazioni uniche di Atelier Santerasmo Cinque, Isaia e le calzature di Louis Leeman insieme ad altri raffinati oggetti e accessori provenienti dal guardaroba di Cesare Cunaccia – ed i suoi dettagli all’ insegna di lirismo e atemporalità. Un racconto intimistico, luci e ombre che concretizzano un vibrante dialogo tra arte e moda e parlano di una storia di oggi che è un mistero di sempre, l’ eleganza maschile.

It will be opened on 14th May 2013 – and will run through  11th June 2013in Milan at the Format Contemporary Culture Gallery the solo exhibition featuring the bright photographer Mustafa Sabbagh which embodies a suggestive survey on the aesthetics of nostalgia – feeling being a leitmotiv of contemporary times, visual arts as it successfully evidenced Francesco Vezzoli, fashion, music and other channels of communication – along with an exploration of grotesque, subversive aesthetics impressed in the works he made evoking a catchy postmodernism, merging the present  with past, reinterpreting in a personal and contemporary way the heritage of fetish culture, subcultures as the new romantic movement and the work by fashion designers and performer artists like Leigh Bowery of whose marvelous lesson seems living again in the portrait by Mustafa, works dialoguing with the landscapes, pictures giving rise to an intimistic tale.

Sarà inaugurata il 14 maggio 2013 – e proseguirà fino all’ 11 giugno 2013a Milano presso la Format Contemporary Culture Gallery la personale del brillante fotografo Mustafa Sabbagh che racchiude una suggestiva indagine sull’ estetica della nostalgia – sentimento che è un leitmotiv della contemporaneità, delle arti visive, come ha felicemente dimostrato Francesco Vezzoli, della moda, musica e altri canali di comunicazione –  unitamente a un’ esplorazione del grottesco, estetica sovversiva impressa nelle sue opere che evocano un accattivante postmodernismo, fondono il presente con il passato, reinterpretando in una foggia personale e contemporanea il patrimonio della cultura fetish, di subculture quali il movimento new romantic e l’ opera di fashion designers e performers quali Leigh Bowery la cui meravigliosa lezione sembra rivivere nei ritratti di Mustafa, opere che dialogano con i paesaggi, immagini che danno vita a un racconto intimista.
