Franceso Francaviglia Pop-up Foto Studio

Francesco Francaviglia Pop-up Photostudio und Meet-the-artist am 19.04.2019

(English translation below)

 

Wir freuen uns, im April den Künstler und Fotografen Francesco Francaviglia bei uns im Buchladen zu Gast zu haben. Der ausgebildete Cellist ist ein namhafter und mehrfach ausgezeichneter sizilianischer Fotograf mit internationalem Fokus. In seinem künstlerischen Wirken arbeitete er unter anderem mit Marina Abramovic, Patti Smith, Edouard Louis oder Lindsay Kamp zusammen und hatte mehrfach die Ehre, den italienischen Präsidenten Sergio Mattarella zu fotografieren. Seine sozialen Projekte, Portrait-Fotografien von Künstlern, Intellektuellen und Politikern ebenso wie Interviews mit ihm wurden in italienischen und internationalen Zeitungen und Zeitschriften veröffentlicht und in Solo-Ausstellungen in Gallerien und Museen ausgestellt.

 

Noch bis zum 28. April 2019 installiert er im Buchladen Eisenherz für sein neues Projekt, das sich fundamentalen menschlichen Sinnesempfindungen widmet, sein Pop-up Photostudio. „My Pop-up photo studio will be the starting point for a new transnational and transcultural adventure“, beschreibt der Künstler und erläutert das besondere daran: „It is where I will create extremely personal and emotional photographic experiences with courageous individuals that want to explore their inner true nature with me. The experience, result of a certain method I apply together with them, will be all about liberation and the personal freedom of those individuals. This includes liberation from categories, freedom from restrictive stereotyped thinking, even freedom for whatever kinds of kinks. The result of each emotional experience (in the „red room“) will be a portrait of yourself like you haven‘t seen yourself before.“

 

Sein Pop-up-Fotostudio in Berlin ist Ausgangspunkt für die Projektarbeit an weiteren internationale Standorten, darunter etwa Ibiza, San Francisco oder Bangkok. Das Projekt mündet in eine Ausstellung einer so noch nicht gesehenen Zusammenstellung mutiger Freigeister aus der ganzen Welt. 

 

Meet the Artist:

Anlässlich seines Photostudios laden wir am Freitag, 15.00 Uhr zum Auftakt des Osterwochenendes in Berlin herzlich zu einem Meet-the-artist-Abend mit Francesco Francaviglia ein. Bei einem kleinen Sektempfang und Snacks gibt es die Möglichkeit, mehr über das Projekt zu erfahren und sich direkt mit dem Künstler auszutauschen.

Francesco Francaviglia Pop-up Photostudio and Meet-the-artist eve on 19th April 2019

 

We are happy to welcome the artist and photographer Francesco Francaviglia as guest in our book store. The studied cellist is a renowned and awarded Sicilian photographer with international focus, who among others has worked with Marina Abramovic, Patti Smith, Edouard Louis or Lindsay Kemp and repeatedly had the honor of photographing the President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella. His social projects, portraits of artists, intellectuals or politicians as well as his interviews have been published in Italian and international newspapers, magazines and have been presented in solo exhibitions in galleries and museums.

 

For his new project, which focuses on the fundamental human sensorial sensations, he creates his pop-up photo studio in our book store until 28th of April 2019. „My Pop-up photo studio will be the starting point for a new transnational and transcultural adventure“, the artist describes and points out its intention: „It is where I will create extremely personal and emotional photographic experiences with courageous individuals that want to explore their inner true nature with me. The experience, result of a certain method I apply together with them, will be all about liberation and the personal freedom of those individuals. This includes liberation from categories, freedom from restrictive stereotyped thinking, even freedom for whatever kinds of kinks. The result of each emotional experience (in the „red room“) will be a portrait of yourself like you haven‘t seen yourself before.“

 

His Pop-up photo studio in Berlin serves as kick-off for an international series and will move on to other places like Ibiza, San Francisco or Bangkok. The result will be an exhibition of a yet unseen collection of courageous and free human spirits from all over the world.

Artist profile

 

Francesco Francaviglia

 

Vita

 

Francesco Francaviglia is a studied cellist and a renowned and awarded Sicilian photographer with international focus, who among others has worked with Serbian performance artist Marina Abramovic, the American singer and artist Patti Smith, the French bestseller author Edouard Louis or British artist Lindsay Kemp and repeatedly had the honor of photographing the President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella. His social projects, portraits of artists, intellectuals or politicians as well as his interviews have been published in Italian and international newspapers, magazines and have been presented in solo exhibitions in galleries and museums.

 

Coming from a background in music and dedicating himself to working as a photographer he explores basic human emotions and fundamental traits of the human experience.

 

In several social and human rights orientated projects he examined what a rapidly changing society does to the individual. In his book book "The Fasting Women against the Mafia” and in later works he explored the very innate drive of strong characters that fight the Italian Mafia and also gave visibility to the families of its victims. His work „Invisible faces” focused on women’s immigration. In Lampedusa he was able to help raise awareness for the situation of refugees and asylum seekers to Europe as a rich continent.

 

His recent work focuses on human connection, filtered by instinct and intuition, using mainly photographic portraiture to study the refined forms of communication between humans, for example when in intimate contact. He explores what creates harmony between two human beings and concentrates on the sensorial and emotional communicative exchange.

 

Francesco Francaviglia has received the mention as the best photographic project on Sicily from Ragusa Photo Festival and FIAF first prize Portfolio Italia as best photographic work of 2014. His work was presented as solo exhibition in several public museums such as the Riso Sicilian Museum of Contemporary Art or the Macro Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome. In autumn 2014 he became the first living author hosted by the Uffizi Gallery, his work being the first photography solo exhibition in the prestigious museum. He also has taught at the IED European Institute of Design in Florence and other art institutions. He currently resides in Florence and Berlin.

 

Berlin project information:

 

The pop-up photo studio of the artist in Berlin in April 2019 serves as kick-off for an international series and will move on to other places like Ibiza, San Francisco or Bangkok. The result will be an exhibition of a yet unseen collection of courageous and free human spirits from all over the world.

 

”My new project is a photographic experience, that goes far beyond the limits of regular portrait photography. The art project will leave all categories behind, be it culture, skin tone, religion, identity or sexual kinks. My aim is to capture the essence of the truth. No made up categories matter. What matters is brutal individual freedom.”
