The mountains are different. They get us into the sky. They are tough. They are real. In the mountains, you are real too.
Climbing is the most extraordinary way of experiencing the mountains. The feeling of space around you is matchless.
Exploring growth and Milan through imaginary architecture
a series of imaginary architecture drawings by Stefan Davidovici in dialogue with photos by Stefano Gusmeroli in exhibition at the CALL OVER 35, 21stTriennale, Palazzo della Triennale, Milan June 22 to July 31 2016
“...it is in the guise of fiction that one can more easily and relentlessly tell the truth.”
Robert D. Kaplan, In Europe's Shadow
The drawings and images are literally 'growing' together, under the eyes of the viewer.
They raise questions about the mechanism that makes architectural spaces alive – the very fact that, like us, they are born, evolve, get old and finally disappear, subject to the very flow of life and history.
The photos and the drawings are intimately related. They grow together. The two media are contrasting but are in a clear, active, living dialogue.
