Benedetta Panisson At The Archaelogical Museum Of Milan

art:i:curate artist Benedetta Panisson presented her latest photographic project at the Archaelogical Museum of Milan as part of the conference 'Milano capitale del nutrimento tra storia e contemporaneita', curated by Barbara Biscotti.


Benedetta's ongoing interest in the union between photography and the aesthetics of sexuality often evolves in photographic projects where the sea becomes a sexual metaphor. In her ongoing photographic series People do Water and Excess Island the artist assigns to her images aesthetics of sexuality by producing a photographic analysis on human bodies in physical relation with the water. The element of the water as well as the utopian idea of the island invite the viewers to perform a simultaneous act of self – exploration and reinvention through their direct connection with the natural elements.


On the occasion of this conference that involves art and academic research, Benedetta's contribution is a photographic sequence curated by Charlotte Laura Garlaschelli and introduction to a project still in progress in collaboration with Roman-law historian Barbara Biscotti. This photographic project has emerged from the will to intersect the imbalances and the balances of knowledge, the necessary discipline of the scientific research and the necessary indiscipline of art.


'Where is water in Milan? Where is it trackable? From this starting point Benedetta Panisson's project develops the representation of the tension between a present-present and a present on the traces of the past.'  Charlotte Laura Garlaschelli
