Giovanna Silva “Milan. City, I listen to your heart”

The exhibition features a selection of about a thousand photographs taken in Milan for a year. Silva focuses on modern and contemporary buildings, but the result is not the Milan of the majestic facades of the city centre. Her tortuous and compulsive vision of the city, like Savinio’s gaze behind the facades, strives to capture something elusive, ineffable. The photos in the exhibition are often unconventional, rarely showing the entire building. Silva takes multiple photos of each building and every image offer a dizzying poetics of shapes and colors.
