Hidden Cities & Hybrid Identities | Rome (Italy)

General Information
Hidden Cities & Hybrid Identities, an international videoart festival and photography exhibition, will be held in the city of Rome. The Ripa Hotel & Riparte Cafè, the venue of the event, will open its doors on Friday, July 06th until Sunday, July 08th. Forty-four artists, twenty-nine video artists and fifteen photo artists from different countries have been selected to be part of this project.

The selections has been based on the main concept of “Hidden Cities & Hybrid Identities” that analyses the hybridization of physical and social identities in the contemporary cities. The theme is about all the cities and places around the world.

“The colors of the hidden cities with his hybrid Identities merge: the day and the night, the neon light that illuminates the facades, the patchwork of contaminations, the passers, layers from top the bottom, undergrounds, built geometric shapes in which to play and invent memories. The urban landscape, and his human bodies, is not only formally captured but also perceptually. Its dynamics and features: into excess, in the immobile, or in the unfinished. Migrations and transformations are self generated in these cities. We can see them as voracious bodies which reconstruct utopias. Seductive idiosyncrasies in which the imitation, the repetition, the symbol and the sublime are connected to the estrangement of modern alienation. Image yourself in these streets, between the blocks and the buildings, portrayed as an unexpected passer by of the filmic flow of an unstable and polymorphic scenery”.  Camilla Boemio, 2012

Hidden Cities are the first point analysis of this talk. With the screening of Luisa Zanzani’s video. The photographic serie “Adria” presents, in a pure documentary genre, a province which has never been so well narrated. The absence of man is the hallmark of the documentary genre.

Natalie Czech / Friederike Feldmann

Art | January 2, 2020

The double exhibition Natalie Czech / Friederike Feldmann brings together two artistic positions that deal specifically with pictorial and linguistic topics and question how meanings are created. The exhibition in the Maschinenhaus M2 at the KINDL - Centre for Contemporary Art brings selected series of the two artists’ works into a dialogical context. In her conceptual photographs, Natalie Czech develops new meanings in the aesthetic interweaving of different levels of text and image. The artist examines the interaction between linguistic and visual information and uncovers poetic potential. In the series Poems by Repetition (since 2017), Czech doubles or multiplies photographed objects and rearranges them, in some cases divided into individual segments. By repeating relevant parts of sentences and words, highlighting them in colour, or covering unimportant elements, she reveals minimalist poems-for example, in the lyrics of Beatles songs.
