Il Giappone nelle fotografie di Alice Covatta.
Centro Culturale Candiani in collaboration with Museo d’Arte Orientale di Venezia
Curator: Elisabetta Da Lio e Margherita Stevanato
Location: Venice (IT)
Exhibition year: 2016
Yamanote-sen aims to scan the most emblematic spaces in Tokyo: the artificial forest of buildings, zen gardens, the Tsukiji fish market, the cherry trees without fruits, the hyper-otaku and the manual perfectionism sought by the artisan, real and virtual places.
The exhibition connects spaces joining them to a few centimeters away on the same wall. Based on this method, the exhibition is structured around a series of diptychs and triptychs. A string of images without a thematic constraint but where new links are created by the irony, the similarity in behavior located in different places or similar atmospheres found in between vegetation and architectural forests.
