Opens on Thursday, February 8th,18:30, and available until April 8th, within the non profit art space, the retrospective dedicated to the photographic project of Sandro Giordano __IN EXTREMIS (bodieswithnoregret), who is coming for the first time in Milan, and which will be presented later within various collective and personal exhibitions, not only in Italy but also in Belgium, Holland, France, Germany, Spain, United States and Canada.

The project __INEXTREMIS was born in 2013 after Sandro Giordano, a.k.a. Remmidemmi, has suffered a bike incident caused him a great injury that he couldn’t be protected from, but where he managed to save the object he was holding in his hand.

The fate wanted that, a few weeks later, one of his friends had his leg broken between rocks to avoid the iPhone he held from falling into the water. These events were the spark that triggered the idea of the photographic series__INEXTREMIS, a project capturing fragments of a reality in which compulsive accumulation of material goods leads to a sort of vertigo, a black out of mind and body, that all of the sudden forces every faces to the ground.

My photos are the tales of a world falling apart”-Sandro Giordano said “and emblems of the contemporary, point of no return”.

Every single photo represents a frame of the reality ,every single fallings are revelation of what we really are, graceless, sometimes uncoordinated, compared to what we stubbornly pretend to be.

The exhibition proposes 26 selected photos, from the iconic and appreciated shoot SOBRIA, the censured one PRI.PO.PO.(women you run the world), the not yet released RED RIDING HOOD, all tied up in pop colours and with the absence of any kind of faces.

As Greta Zuccali writes in the catalogue of the exhibition: “The human being is literally fracturing and only the objects he is maniacally surrounded by remain intact. The photographic medium is becoming an exhaustible invitation to reflexion about a contemporaneity belonging to everyone, with their neuroses and tics, ungratefully laid bare and gently mocked. The key of the project is clearly declared as ironic and looks at the comics idea of the tragedy, focusing on the revealing and liberating effect of laughing, intoning an hymn to the imperfection as the true perfection of the human being.”

For the opening of the vernissage, a presentation by the singer Marianne Mirage, an artist who, after having participated to the Festival di Sanremo in 2017 with the song «Le Canzoni fanno male», became the voice of the film «The Place», directed by Paolo Genovese.

During the opening, starting from 8:15pm, there will be the opportunity to attend a live performance of Remmidemmi. The visitors will become the players of a special recreated photographic set inspired by one of the photographs on display. Each one, photographed with Polaroid, will have the opportunity to pierce the very heart of the__INEXTREMIS project and in the following days will be able to pick up his shot, signed by the artist himself.
