Thanks to all the visitors for the highly positive feedback and support ZÜRCHER/IN got in the last two weeks, from the vernissage to the last day at Photobastei 2.0.
Did you miss ZÜRCHER/IN the exhibition?
Find what was all about in the next three blog posts. ZÜRCHER/IN is a photography project created by ARTBorghi (Lorenzo Borghi and Maria Francesca) on the common people highly over-represented as bronze and granite statues in the city of Zürich, Switzerland. Just a few statues of prominents adorn this Swiss city, which is flooded by commoners mostly relaxing in their free time. A Swiss hymn to power to the people? A wise suggestion to take it easy? A neo-classic time-machine?

An elusive presence. Many of the bronze and granite statues in the streets and parks of Zurich have populated the city for almost a century. The artworks of local and foreign artists rightfully acquired the honorary citizenship. Whether women in skimpy clothes or young nude boys, everyday human being is elevated to symbolic heights. A photographic exhibition that invites not only to look at but also to look inward.

The gulf of Naples stretches for 15 km in front of Naples: at the North side it ends with the island of Ischia, at the South side with the Island of Capri. In this limited space you find the 3.7 million metropolitan city of Naples, the volcano Vesuvio, the towns of Sorrento and Pompei and Ercolano … the latter two among the widest archeological sites from the ancient Roman time. It is easy to feel out of space and time (but not of meaning) here.
