Il nero, la sua luce, traccia imprescindibile dell’ opera del brillante fotografo Mustafa Sabbagh, sarà protagonista di “Tuxedo Riot”, mostra inclusa nel calendario del SI Fest 2015 Savignano Immagini Festival che si terrà dall’ 11 al 27 settembre 2015 a Savignano sul Rubicone presso l’ Ex Consorzio di Bonifica. Ivi sarà presentata una rassegna di lavori che esplorano i rivoluzionari, la loro attitudine, un impeto che inizia dall’ incisiva e raffinata eleganza di un abito, lo smoking e dà vita a un’ armonia in cui l’ esteriorità diventa  l’ involucro dell’ interiorità, di un sovversivo e vibrante pensiero che vanifica l’ ovvio e il convenzionale. Il nero splende, le tenebre si tingono di lacrime e sangue, brama di vita, passione, erotismo e libertà. Questo è il nero di Mustafa, pigmento primario, colore non colore che assorbe la luce degli altri colori e parla dei lati più oscuri e profondi dell’ animo, di emozioni e sentimenti che fanno parte dell’ umanità. Un intenso lirismo urla in silenzio ed è enfatizzato da altri lavori inediti, ritratti di uomini, donne e della natura che saranno presentati in occasione di questo imperdibile evento, felice occasione per scoprire e amare un autentico artista.

OBSCENITY & REVOLUTION: FASHION, PHOTOGRAPHY, OLFACTIVE DESIGN, JEWELRY & OTHER WONDERS BY BRUCE LABRUCE

Bruce LaBruce
Bruce LaBruce

Bruce LaBruce, brilliant Canadian filmmaker, photographer and author, who uses queercore, a non conventional aesthetics which questions about the contemporary times, is bringer of libertine and libertarian ideas, turned into films as the celebrated cult-movie “The Raspberry Reich” (the word “Reich” is a clear reference to the psychiatric and philosopher Wilhelm Reich), featuring the slogan “The revolution is my boyfriend”. That became a book, “The Revolution is my boyfriend: The Raspberry Reich and the Subversive Power of Political Porn”, embodying his vibrant thought as well as fashion or rather a collection of t-shirts made in collaboration with Poppsychic including some of the categorical imperatives that are in this movie as “Join the homosexual intifada”. The overwhelming creativity of Bruce also experienced with the olfactive design, giving rise along with the nose Kim Weissange to the perfume “Obscenity by Bruce LaBruce”, fragrance which has launched during the exhibitions, held time ago in Madrid at the La Fresh art gallery and in New York at The Hole gallery, focused on the theme of holy and profane, naturally reinterpreted in his unique way, emphasizing fetish suggestions, grotesque visions and including also a marvelous picture of the iconic actress Rossy de Palma. The packaging of scent, which is available in two editions, the gold and silver one, is as itself a suggestive work, designed by Jonathan Johnson, which depicts a naked woman kneeled on the top of bottle and a drop going down. The bouquet of “perfume is associated” – as Bruce says – “with occult or religious rituals (vetiver, labdanum and oud) along with others aromas that are considered as aphrodisiacal” like patchouli and sandalwood and makes concrete the idea of obscenity (word reminding me the poetry by Carmelo Bene who, considering the theatre, defined the “porn”, “oscene” – to be off the stage as it arises from the ancient Greek language – as the physical place where the act becomes exclusively performative, neither metaphoric, nor representative, as well as it happens in the realm of sport- It’s the body into the porn which is the scene and space of action) or rather the absence of conflict between the religious and sexual, they should be completely complementary”. “The fragrance” – Bruce tells – “is meant to stimulate you sexually, but it also contains holy elements”, that perhaps have healing properties as the water from Lourdes. The launch of this perfume was accompanied by a commercial shot by the filmmaker which poked fun the realm of mainstream perfumes’ commercials and talked about an ethereal woman, who seemed like an angel, went out during the evening, was desperate and got drunk, then came back home and saw her lover, a black male, standing on the bed, image evoking the idea of wild eroticism. Irony, framing a keen mind, is another feature of the artist, also impressed in his latest work in the realm of jewelry, a series of fun sterling silver and rhodinated sterling silver rings (some of them embody the word “LA Zombie”, being the title of a movie he made”), arising from the teaming with the designer Jonathan Johnson. It’s picturesque the Bruce’s universe, peopled by many signs talking about freedom.

OSCENITÀ & RIVOLUZIONE: MODA, FOTOGRAFIA, DESIGN OLFATTIVO, GIOIELLI & LE ALTRE MERAVIGLIE DI BRUCE LABRUCE

Bruce LaBruce, brillante regista, fotografo e scrittore canadese che si avvale del queercore, un’ estetica non convenzionale, la quale critica la contemporaneità, è portatrice di idee libertine e libertarie, trasformate in pellicole quali il celebre cult-movie “The Raspberry Reich” (la parola “Reich” è un chiaro riferimento allo psichiatra e filosofo Wilhelm Reich), in cui appare lo slogan “The revolution is my boyfriend”( “La rivoluzione è il mio ragazzo”). Ciò è divenuto un libro, “The Revolution is my boyfriend: The Raspberry Reich and the Subversive Power of Political Porn”, che racchiude il suo vibrante pensiero come anche moda ovvero una collezione di t-shirt realizzate in collaborazione con Poppsychic, comprensiva di alcuni degli imperativi categorici che ci sono in questo film come “Join the homosexual intifada”(“Unitevi alla intifada omosessuale”). L’ irrefrenabile creatività di Bruce sia è anche sperimentata nel design olfattivo, dando vita insieme al naso Kim Weissange al profumo “Obscenity by Bruce LaBruce”, fragranza che è stata presentata durante le mostre, tenutesi tempo fa a Madrid presso la galleria La Fresh gallery ed a New York presso la galleria The Hole gallery, incentrate sul tema di sacro e profano, naturalmente reinterpretato nel suo modo unico, che enfatizza suggestioni fetish, visioni grottesche e include anche una meravigliosa immagine dell’ iconica attrice Rossy de Palma. Il packaging del profumo, disponibile in due edizioni, gold e silver, è di per sé un’ opera suggestiva, disegnata da Jonathan Johnson, raffigura una donna nuda inginocchiata sulla parte superiore della bottiglia e una goccia che cade giù. Il bouquet del “profumo è associato” – come dice Bruce – “ai rituali del mondo occulto e della religione (vetiver, labdano e oud) unitamente ad altri aromi che sono considerate afrodisiaci” come il patchouli e il sandalo e concretizza felicemente l’ idea di oscenità ( lemma che mi ricorda la poetica di Carmelo Bene, che, prendendo in considerazione il teatro , definiva il “porno”, “l’ osceno” – l’ esser fuori dalla scena, significato derivante dal greco antico – come luogo fisico in cui l’ atto si fa esclusivamente performativo, né metaforico, tantomeno rappresentativo, come avviene nell’ ambito dello sport. È il corpo stesso all’ interno del porno a costituire lo scenario e spazio dell’ azione) o meglio l’ assenza di  conflitto tra il religioso e il sessuale, che dovrebbero essere totalmente complementari”. “La fragranza” – racconta Bruce – “è rivolta alla stimolazione sessuale, ma contiene anche elementi sacri, che probabilmente hanno anche proprietà guaritrici come l’ acqua di Lourdes. Il suo lancio è stato accompagnato da una pubblicità girata dal regista che beffeggiava le pubblicità dei profumi di maistream e parlava di una donna eterea, dalle sembianze angelica, la quale usciva fuori la sera, disperata, si ubriacava, poi, una volta tornata a casa trovava il suo amante, un uomo di colore, a letto, immagine che evoca l’ idea di erotismo selvaggio. L’ ironia, che incornicia una mente acuta, è un’ altro tratto dell’ artista, impresso anche in un suo recente lavoro nell’ ambito dei gioielli, una serie di divertenti anelli d’ argento e argento rodiato( alcuni dei quali incorporano la parola “LA Zombie” che è il titolo di un suo film) che nascono dalla collaborazione con il designer Jonathan Johnson. Un variopinto universo, quello di Bruce, popolato da svariati segni che parlano di libertà.

I recently saw again the fashion designer Isabella Tonchi, companion of interludes under the sign of art – that frequently focus on the openings of Galleria Carla Sozzani, as it happened months ago, for the opening of exhibition on fashion photographer Arthur Elgort – with whom I attended at the opening of “Deep, deeper”., solo exhibition featuring the artist David Murphy, which is held at the Milan Galleria Monica De Cardenas and runs through 31st July 2015. The British sculptor gave rise to drawings being in the space( one of them reminded me another reference to the idea of “deepness”, the music video “Deep six” by Marilyn Manson), arising from a successful search of matter, also impressed on canvas and talking about a dialogue and interaction with the natural world. I was also pleased to enjoy the works by Linda Fregni Nagler – Switzerland artist who is resident at the gallery – and the intensity and light melancholy of photography she made, telling about the theme of suicide.

Ho recentemente rivisto la fashion designer Isabella Tonchi, compagna di interludi all’ insegna dell’ arte – che sovente si rivolgono alle inaugurazioni della Galleria Carla Sozzani, come è accaduto mesi fa per la opening della mostra sul fotografo di moda Arthur Elgort – con la quale ho partecipato alla opening di “Deep, deeper”, personale di solo David Murphy(che si tiene presso la Galleria di Milano Monica De Cardenas e prosegue fino al 31 luglio 2015), Lo scultore inglese ha dato vita a varie opere, sculture che sono disegni nello spazio (una delle quali mi ha ricordato un altro riferimento all’ idea di “profondità”, il video del brano “Deep six” di Marilyn Manson), nascono da una felice ricerca materica, impressa anche su tela e parlano di un dialogo e interazione con il mondo della natura. Mi ha rallegrato poter apprezzare anche le opere di Linda Fregni Nagler, artista svizzera rappresentata dalla galleria, , l’ intensità e lieve malinconia delle sue fotografie, che affrontano il tema del suicidio.

“CLICK”: ART & FASHION UNDER THE SIGN OF GIULIA MARANI

Giulia Marani & Andrea Tonellotto, photo by N
Giulia Marani & Andrea Tonellotto, photo by N

Art and fashion features in “Click”, the Spring/Summer 2015 collection by the bright, young fashion designer Giulia Marani, inspired by the lyricism of landscapes by the photographer Andrea Tonellotto. The visions and urban geometries of photographs he made, the instantaneousness of shoot made with Polaroid camera, find a new context in fashion and are impressed on the prints and textiles that emphasize their dynamism. The craftsmanship made in Italy, a family’s attitude(being Giulia the daughter of Angelo Marani) is embodied in creations that are a genuine passé-partout. Clean and fluid lines, some of them caress the silhouette, reinterpret the volumes from Sixties where it shines a smashing research, experimentation, high-end materials(viscose, cotton, silk) and care for details. An alchemy of bright and light colors along with black and white, cloths and yarns, inlay works, thought to emphasize the idea of movement, give rise to a fresh, versatile and contemporary elegance.

 “CLICK”: ARTE & MODA SOTTO IL SEGNO DI GIULIA MARANI

Arte e moda sono i protagonisti di “Click”, la collezione primavera/estate 2015 della brillante, giovane fashion designer Giulia Marani che si ispira al lirismo dei paesaggi del fotografo Andrea Tonellotto. Le visioni e geometrie urbane della sua fotografia, l’istantaneità di uno scatto della Polaroid trovano un nuovo contesto nella moda e sono impresse sulle stampe e tessuti che ne enfatizzano il dinamismo. La maestria artigianale made in Italy, un’ attitudine di famiglia (essendo Giulia la figlia di Angelo Marani) è racchiusa in creazioni che sono un autentico passe-partout. Linee pulite e fluide alcune delle quali accarezzano la silhouette e reinterpretano i volumi degli anni Sessanta in cui splende una formidabile ricerca, sperimentazione, alta qualità dei materiali (viscosa, cotone, seta) e cura dei dettagli. Un’ alchimia di colori accesi e tenui unitamente a bianco e nero, tessuti e filati, intarsi, pensati per sottolineare l’ idea del movimento, dà vita ad un’ eleganza fresca, versatile e contemporanea.
