Produced by Fondazione I Teatri and Reggio Parma Festival
Can photography represent the drama of human life? The series Opera Aperta by Alex Majoli is able, thanks to a skillful use of Caravaggio- inspiration light, to show what David Campany calls the theatricality of life. Common moments are fixed in eternal moments that seem theatrical representations. A project that has accompanied the photographer for eight years and that has seen its consecration in the major exhibition organized in 2019 at Le Bal, Paris, curated by David Campany.
A work born inspired by some of the great masters of the twentieth-century experimental theatre, which at Fotografia Europea 2021 finds its natural evolution: reality sees “staging” as the base of its production: the theatre.
Fondazione I Teatri and Reggio Parma Festival have in fact invited Majoli to reflect on the relationship between the theatre and the city and its possible interconnections. The exhibition previewed at Fotografia Europea will invade the city with large wallpapers in an osmotic exchange between theatre and reality.
