AFTER WE TOUCH WE BECOME SOMETHING DIFFERENT
28.05.2018 - 15.07.2019
This is an exhibition of two young female Italian photographers whose bodies of work meet on an emotional level, creating a parallel place where there is space for self-discovery.
With their works, photographers Chiara Lombardi and Rachele Montoro merge two complementary colors, red and blue, which communicate through harmony onto an introspective dimension. The exhibited photographs are a mix of digital and analogic works.
The photographic project centers on the idea of understanding who we are by looking at others. The photographic path suggests different thoughts: what happens to our body and the relationships it creates?
What happens when two bodies touch, to their alchemy and the soul they enclose? How does the shape of one’s body change as it touches other bodies? These photographs ask questions while anticipating answers; the model’s body is investigated in shape, size, and color. Finally, when two bodies meet they generate a new, unseen shape and a delicate relationship.
Chiara Lombardi (b. 1995) graduated in photography at RUFA in 2017. She lives and works between Rome and Turin. Rachele Montoro (b. 1992) studied photography at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Naples. Today she works between Naples and Milan.
