CAMERA – Centro Italiano per la Fotografia presents, from 18 July to 29 September, the project by Jacopo Benassi (La Spezia, 1970) titled "Crack". In the Sala Grandeand the long corridor at CAMERA the 60 images that make up Crack will be displayed,a project that Jacopo Benassi carried out around his reflection on the relationship between the classical and the contemporary bodies and links that individuals establish with people and environments. "Crack," comments Walter Guadagnini, "is an atlas of the body, elaborated amid the extremes of ancient and contemporary plastic physical flagrance."The result is the underlining not only of the effects of decadence lying in wait for the human body just as much as for the sculpted one, but perhaps even more so of the scope for the recomposition of fractures, breakage and the charm that even these elements may take on in our reading of the body and the form. This outlook is also underlined by the framing of the single works and the whole, surprising display of the exhibition, which are an integral part of the exhibition project and endow the images with a further vital tension.
The exhibition is produced by Fotografia Europea in Reggio Emilia.
