Ardesia Projects is a recently established platform made by young artists aiming to provide and promote contents for emerging photographers and visual artists. Our ambition is to establish an international and European network in order to bridge the gap between different visual cultures and give visibility to artists with international experiences. The exhibition considers photographic researches made in the past year on social and economical issues of contemporary society by Dimitri D’Ippolito and Michele Amaglio, both graduates from the University of Brighton.
Dimitri D’Ippolito’s body of work They Are Not, investigates the phenomenon of money laundering in the UK and speci cally in London. Most of the nancial businesses lead by these organisations take place in the British capital, right in the middle of the most important European nancial pole. The sense of uncanny created by the obscured identity of the people portrayed allows the viewer to perceive the investigation’s arduousness and that of disentangling the subject matter.
With the body of work Jesolo Traum, Michele Amaglio investigates the visual aesthetic of the seaside resort town of Jesolo in the North Eastern coast of Italy. Hotels, fun fairs and clubs rapidly emerged in the landscape and contributed to the creation of a utopian perspective of collective optimism. Jesolo Traum represents a visual enquiry on the rapid change of aesthetics of Jesolo from the optimistic dream to the simulation of an exotic paradise.
