”J line” – Solo Exhibition of Pietro Celesia
LOCATION: Aeroporto di Milano-Malpensa, Ferno, VA, /IT
The photographic series “J Line” of the Italian artist Pietro Celesia will be shown at Milan Malpensa Airport. The exhibition consists of photography, video and sound installation.
Based on an inspirational subway tour from legendary New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport to Wall Street, Pietro Celesia began exploring the different suburbs. The result of capturing the city on infrared film shows the city as in a dreamlike reality – a strong imagery rotating between spaces, energies, and rhythms. While Miles Davis´ jazz was always accompanying his moves along the J line, he felt as he was being on a journey through time as well as stuck in a vibrant presence of a melting pot; its streets and tunes linked the present and the past with the architecture and visions of the American dream, immortalized by photographers and avant-garde filmmakers a long time ago.
Understanding architecture as a narration of society The J line reflects on a city of immediacy, and of downright business, but also on a space of urban intimacy, where one can feel at ease, free of fear or tensions.
Within the different media shown in this exhibition, The J line manifests ideas of inter-connections, coexistence, and interdependence or how Pietro describes his project:”The whole, however, can only exist because of all the parts.”
