CARTE BLANCHE #5: Fashion in Biella Newsreel 2010
Palazzo Cordusio – UniCredit Branch, Milan
23rd September – 30th December 2011
“The show consists of a video work and a number of photographs by the Serbian artist Aleksandrija Ajdukovic, telling the stories of ordinary people through the clothes they wear in their everyday lives. The reference to the world of fashion emerges from the poses typical of professional models as struck by the protagonists of the photos: Fashion in Biella Newsreel 2010 in fact starts out from fashion only to then reveal the individuals points of view and the way they presents themselves to others.”
The good people of the La Pigna community in San Remo came to visit us today. Last year, they initiated a kind of mini residence with UNIDEE. The idea is that the UNIDEE residents go to La Pigna for one week in August where they will be hosted by the community and at the end of the week they are invited to create a work or intervention inspired by their residence there for that week.
