In the guise of a story, HUMAN presents a selection of photographs by twelve artists, all of them created following the same methodical, conceptual and evocative concept. Form and substance merge in this major show under the nexus of three main areas, in which human intervention governs the content of the story.
The first scenario revolves around the identity of the “self”. Faces, bodies and souls fit the author’s imagination. In this introduction, the “we” is left outside the scope and the “self” wiggles in a world of its own, in a universe of impactful, gestural, scenographic and imagined new forms.
In the second scenario, the authors’ photographic vision shows human beings in their own real contexts, without them being aware of their own envelopments. It is a survey of cities, spaces, habitats, destruction and survival.
The third scenario examines the natural environment or the environment prompted by the passage of time, becoming a vanishing point, in an instant of contemplation.
Finally, ARS VISIBILIS V shows the images by several international female photographers produced under the concept of constructing the female semasiology. Starting with this premise, the participating photographs will offer their works in a dynamic exhibition around which the visitors will find the most appropriate word (in their primordial language) for the concept expressed by the artist. This aesthetic reality goes far beyond the level of concept, since this action-exhibition will examine the silenced history of female artists over the centuries. The historical reality, the invisibility with which they are and have been treated, is shared, albeit with major cultural differences. This fact, which is being overcome by the constant claims of groups and collectives of female artists, should become natural in this age. The collective process of work-discourse will bring an added value to this exhibition experience in which women rise up in their own visible identity with shared messages.
