ANTROPO – AMORFO by Corgiat and Akasha
ARTiglieria - Con/temporary Art Center
5 May — 29 May 2022
Opening 5 May, 7:00 pm
ANTROPO-AMORFO is an audiovisual project by Corgiat and Akasha that moves between abstractions and real forms. Human figures emerge from primordial blobs and intertwine, losing their configuration between iridescent materials, soft glows and ancestral sounds.
In the dynamic transformation of form and sound, the installation aims to guide the public towards an erratic movement of change of perspective. Once the boundaries of form and substance have been overcome, the viewer will feel immersed in an amorphous state, a unique condition in nature halfway between liquid and solid, where he can let himself go to the contemplation of the intangible, lulled by sound waves and iridescent reflections.
“Liquida Photofestival“ wants to be a reference to return, as much as possible, the state of photographic research in its various forms of expression and the state of the image at the precise moment of its manifestation, trying to give voice to the new talents of photography contemporary, not only from the point of view of authorial production, but also of photographic reflection, involving professionals who today begin their journey in this constantly evolving cosmos. Artistic direction by Laura Tota.
