From the 24th of May, Galeria Ricardo Von Brusky presents the exhibition Africa between looks, first solo show by the artist Rosa De Luca at the gallery. Curated by Carollina Lauriano, the show features 32 photographs that portray not only a little-known reality but also one that is highly stigmatized.
The photographer is driven by the desire to establish a relationship with some cultures that still prevail in a globalized world, and for this reason she presents the result of her trip to Ethiopia and the contact with the Karo people, one of those who suffer most from the threat of extinction. Even so, the exhibition does not have the character of a complaint.
The artist actually proposes an experience of bonds, albeit momentary, between the spectator and the portrayed mediated by the photographs. Lauriano explains: “For this reason, perhaps, part of the artist's focus is on children. Most likely in order to tell us that this preservation instinct has to be less individual and more collective. no need go to africa to understand the pains and delights of being a plural continent. But we must be aware that these aspects are also part of us, as part of a whole.”
