THE DARK SIDE
photographic exhibition of Michela Montrasio
from 17 maggio al 9 giugno 2018
Michela Montrasio is multifaceted artist with a particular personal and professional attention to art therapy. One of the fundamental themes in art therapy practice is the concept of "Shadow" in the sense Junhiano: man is composed of light and shadow, of good and evil and both these aspects must be integrated. The photograph is perfect expression of harmony between light and shadow: the shadow exists only in the presence of light. Michela Montrasio investigated this dark side daily, driven by the need to confront a dimension which give space and give name. The exhibition, consists of eight 50 × 75 format photographs in black and white on baryta paper.
The photos were taken with traditional machine (Leica R3) using Agfa film SCALE 200X and Superpan 200 Rollei.
Catalog with texts of Federica Fontana and Nicola Concept
