Dopo il successo di Milano e Londra, dal 27 Novembre 2014 fino al 31 Gennaio 2015 verranno esibite presso il nuovo spazio espositivo dell’Aeroporto Internazionale di Napoli, una riproduzione di 12 opere della mostra fotografica Alza lo sguardo – Aaron Baghetti.
Ovunque nel mondo, nelle metropoli moderne, camminando per strada, si osserva come le persone siano assorte nel proprio microcosmo, distanti dagli altri e da ciò che le circonda, ognuno preso dal proprio quotidiano, vivendo fermi in un presente distratto. Alza lo sguardo è una mostra dedicata al futurismo, che vuole contrastare questa sensazione di estraneazione globale, e stimolare l’individuo ad acquisire dettagli al di fuori della propria portata visiva, ad alzare lo sguardo verso prospettive futuristiche, reali, concrete, che nascono dall’ingegno umano, dalla necessità di evolversi e di superare sempre i propri limiti. In questo contesto si inserisce Napoli con i suoi contrasti tra modernita’ e degradazione, ottimismo verso il futuro e rassegnazione. L’Aeroporto Internazionale di Napoli vuole dare un messaggio di apertura verso nuove frontiere, verso mete che sembrano lontane, ma che in realta’, con un solo scalo, sono raggiungibili proprio a partire da Napoli.
In mostra 12 fotografie incluso uno scatto inedito realizzato dall’artista al centro direzionale di Napoli, in un percorso espositivo che invita i viaggiatori in partenza e i loro accompagnatori ad “Alzare lo Sguardo” ed a esplorare destinazioni sempre piu’ lontane.
Vernissage Giovedi’ 27 Novembre alle 18:00.
After the success of his shows in Milan and London, Aaron Baghetti presents a selection of “Tilt Up” images at Naples International Airport.
Everywhere in the world, in the modern metropolis, walking in the street, we see how people are absorbed in their own microcosm, distant from each other and from what surrounds them, each taken from their own daily lives, living still in a distracted present. Tilt Up is an exhibition that is inspired by this feeling of global alienation, it wants to stimulate the individuals to acquire details outside of their visual range, to raise their gaze towards futuristic perspectives, real, concrete, which arise from the human intelligence, by the need to evolve and to always overcome its limits.
In this context, here it is Naples with its contrasts between modernity and degradation, optimism about the future and resignation. The Naples International Airport wants to give a message of openness to new frontiers, to places that seem far away, but in reality, with only one stop can be reached also from Naples.
The exhibition presents 10 photographs taken by the artist in different towns around the world, including an ‘unpublished’ image shot at the Business Centre of Naples.
Opening and Vernissage on Thursday 27th November at 18:00 CET.
‘Alza Lo Sguardo’ By Aaron Baghetti
PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OPENING: Thursday 26th June 2014
EXHIBITION DATES: 27th June – 31st July 2014
LOCATION: C99 Art Project, 99 Chamberlayne Road, London, NW10 3ND
After the success of the first exhibition in Milan, emerging talent Aaron Baghetti presents a selection of Tilt Up images at C99 Art Project.
Tilt Up is an exhibition that is inspired by a collective feeling of global alienation, the work aims to stimulate individuals to acquire details outside of their visual range, to raise their gaze towards futuristic perspectives, real and concrete that arise from human intelligence by the need to evolve and to always overcome its limits.
Everywhere in the world, in the modern metropolis, walking in the street, we see how people are absorbed in their own microcosm, distant from each other and from what surrounds them, each taken from their own daily lives, living still in a distracted present.
Aaron Baghetti was born in Milan and is an emerging talent and whose work is one to watch. His father, Giancarlo was a journalist and photographer and a well known Ferrari Formula 1 pilot – the only rookie to have won a Grand Prix F1 at his first race. It was this early influence that ignited Aaron Baghetti’s passion to become a professional photographer at the early age of sixteen.
Since then Aaron Baghetti has pursued a successful career working within the commercial sector, capturing everything from cars to music, fashion and design. As a photographer, Aaron is fond of any project that transcends enthusiasm and dedication to the point of deciding not to get limited to a specific boundary, but to be free to follow his inspiration of the moment.
Some events of his life, such as the premature death of his father have deeply marked him, but at the same time have also encouraged the growth of his own charisma, the development of a deep inner world and a keen sense of observation.
This has led to Aaron Baghetti’s artistic inspiration, to build on his cultural and emotional experience and heritage (futurism, transavantgarde and science fiction), generating his desire to emerge, to look up ahead, to travel around the world and capture the powerful images employed in the exhibition ‘Alza Lo Sguardo’, as well as to focus on Fine Art Photography.
Aaron’s first exhibition entitled ‘Alza lo Sguardo’ was held in Milan last spring. This year in May 2014, he featured three works at the London Photo Festival and has also shown a motion photograph at The Saatchi Gallery together with other shortlisted works from Google Art Project ‘Google+’ and The Saatchi Gallery Prize.
