PERCORSI URBANI PRESENTS "ARTIS MAGICAE SUSPECTIO" PHOTO EXIBITION BY SUZANNE VAN DER BORG. ON DISPLAY IN THE WINDOWS OF OTTICA URBANI.
A new episode of Percorsi Urbani kicks off, offering space and visibility to young Venetian talents.
From 4 November, the windows of Ottica Urbani will host the photographic creations of SUZANNE VAN DER BORG.
It hides in the folds of our mortal existence, it shows itself among the leaves dampened by the night and lit by the first morning sun, among the soft sparkling grains of fresh asphalt, among the glare of glass splinters from an exploded bottle, in the upside down reflection of a murky parallel reality, contained by a swimming pool abandoned by summer visitors. It is there, always within reach, ready to surprise us without warning.
BIO The principle behind her photographic production is that of benevolent chaos. She chooses to work in the total absence of manipulation and post-production: what is imprinted on the film acquires wonder in its being a unique fragment, an instant captured as it is, pure and uncontaminated. Half Italian, half Dutch, adrift both in the North Sea and in the Venice Lagoon. She currently lives, works and dreams in Venice.
