Brigitte March Niedermair : Transition Giorgio Morandi: Are You Still There (Hardcover) (Gianfranco
About this item
An intimate look at the paintings of Giorgio Morandi, as seen through the revelatory photographs of Brigitte Niedermair. This gorgeous volume follows a major exhibition at MAMBO in Bologna, Italy, in which artist Brigitte Niedermair explores the concept of "horizon" through photographic explorations.Divided into two parts, the first series of photographs titled "transition_Giorgio Morandi" reflects on the subtlety of Morandi’s paintings and objects in the artist’s studio, in an attempt to understand the tensions, emotions, and complexity of his seemingly simple still lifes.The second series, titled "are you still there," explores the horizon of the pyramids in Egypt, a mysterious boundary between earth and sky, between the visible and invisible. The artist presents her own vision of these monumental structures, revealing images that do not speak of architectural complexity but of spirituality, energy, and the quest for the inner and secret horizon that runs through the existence of each of us."
