Lue, 2017 at Spazio Serra, Milan.

Lue is an installation by artist Andrea Barbagallo that reflects and analyses the relational processes that diseases such as Syphilis establish within the physical and social body. Lue is not a concept that ascribes the whole exhibition in the pharmaceutical-sanitary field, but takes into consideration the conflictual nature illness has with the body and with the relationships between illness and society. The spectator observes the slow wither and change of things, aware of the fact that Lue is a mirror within which to look at their contagion. Lue was presented at Spazio Serra, Milan and is presented here in a digital form.

REVIEW: The psychological drama of Gregory Crewsdon’s photographic series ‘Cathedral of the Pines’

The haunting photographs of Gregory Crewsdon will leave you with a strange taste in your mouth. Slightly metallic, blood perhaps, with a lingering smell of old cigarette smoke and a damp shiver crawling across the skin. Crewsdon is unveiling ‘what exists beneath the surface’ in his carefully staged photographs set in small-town America where characters seemingly hide dark secrets. A psychological complexity is conjured in each image, leaving the viewer on a disturbing, visual cliff-hanger. Continue reading
