June 11-29, 2008, Potsdam
Subject: "Venice in Windows"
photographs by Riccardo Zipoli, with poetry by Mirzâ Abdolqâder Bidel translated by Riccardo Zipoli
(English version from the Italian by David Kerr)
The exhibition will be shown at the Pavillon on the Freundschaftsinsel in Potsdam (11 June – 29 June 2008) and is organized by the Italian Cultural Institute of Berlin on the occasion of the Sanssouci
The 40 photographs of the exhibition, selected from over a thousand photographs taken from 2004 to 2006, show a fleeting, elusive city, at once ideal and metaphysical. That is how Venice appears reflected in the panes of its own windows – both ephemeral and eternal. This is no double but a different Venice, an imaginary Venice. Its changing forms and colors are multiplied in unexpected perspectives and astonishing juxtapositions. The tangible is combined pictorially with the abstract. Domes, trees, bell towers, columns, clouds, statues, and chimneys are momentarily caught, in more or less distorted forms, framed by the windows of houses and palaces.
The works in the exhibition are shown in pairs. Each pair has a specific feature shared by the two images.
The lines of verse accompanying the photographs are all dedicated to the theme of the mirror and are taken from the Persian divan of Mirzâ Abdolqâder Bidel (1644-1720), a poet, philosopher and mystic who lived in India and is one of the truly great writers in Persian literature.
The exhibition is a sort of invitation to visit the town in a different way and an example of how to show the close relationship between the artistic activities of two great cultures.
The material in the exhibition has been published in Riccardo Zipoli, Venezia alle
finestre, Marsilio, Venice, 2006.
The exhibition was shown at the Real Academia de España in Rome (19 December 2006 – 18 January 2007), at Ca’ Foscari University in Venice (15 May – 15 June 2007), at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tehran (19 February – 19 April 2008) and will be shown at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris in the Summer 2009. more info:
