Recall eterne icone

Description

Coffee and Photography as powerful icons of yore. From the coffee pot for Turkish coffee, to the Neapolitan one, till the current moka. The still life’s sequence shows a visual-temporal path that both subjects, coffee and photography, travel along together in a mutual reference of symbols and allusions. The lightning is evocative of the historic avant-gardes of photography that have influenced the taste and style of current generations in visual artists.

Jury’s Motivation

A work of great classicism that refers to the time and the history of art and photography.
