Mimmo Jodice: Archipelago : Archipelago of the Ancient World
Mimmo Jodice presents a new selection of works from his in-depth exploration of the Mediterranean area, a series that has been mesmerizing viewers around the world for more than thirty years. Through a collection of fifty photographs, some never seen before, the artist leads us on a path to recover memory, reconstructing an image of the civilizations that marked the ancient history of mare nostrum. On this compelling trip back in time, ruins and statues return to life as people, gods and heroes who seem to express our same feelings. The photographs, with their intense fusion of realism and vision, revitalizing fragments laden with memories that trace back along the lines of time, remind us all of the need to reclaim our history.
