The exhibition focuses on women represented as spiritual and physical human beings in all their different expressions, emotions and (un)desirable social conditions. Irena Fabri and Marcella Zanki, with their photographs, want to show and divide women in two opposite states of mind (the spiritual and the strong emotional one) to give a personal review and interpretation of the female nature.
Two Side of the Mirror is inaugurating its first ever photography exhibition abroad of Irena Fabri & Marcella Zanki on 12 May 2016 at the Atelier Home Gallery located in Trieste, Italy. Related to the two-month-long exhibition we organise the opening with the two artists and plan side events to further engage the local art scene.
Irena Fabri deals with the spiritual as well as the enigmatic side of female existence. The photographs summarise all these elements by capturing intimate moments.
The photographs are not completely harmonious but have the power of expression and emotional effect aiming to symbolise the essence of female nature that is not completely visible and available to mere sensory perception. Such a spiritual approach of the artist wants to point out the hidden contents of small and intimate moments materialised through photography.
Marcella Zanki shows the wild and vigorous female world, beyond the spiritual one, by adding in her photographs the emotional charge of a woman. The result is completely opposite of Irena Fabri approach.
Independence, self-sufficiency, strong character and determination are only some features that make the aura of Marcella's photographs. Free from layers and rules, prurient to the appropriate extent, the women, in the photographs of Marcella Zanki, call for freedom, ask for a sort of rebellion and build their new world, the world of different reasons and logics.
