Give Me Yesterday 把昨天給我


伴隨著新空間的首檔開幕展,則是由攝影評論與策展人Francesco Zanot策劃的「把昨天給我」,邀請14名來自義大利、日本、荷蘭及中國等世界各地藝術家的作品,檢視自二十一世紀以來在攝影對於私人生活紀錄的影響與變化。參與此展覽的藝術家包括Ryan McGinley、Maurice van Es、Leigh Ledare與小林健太等人。現下發展、汰舊迅速的攝影器材設備,以及勢不可擋的社群網路等圖像資訊的流通方式,讓這群新一代的攝影師得以將影像日記作為儀器,舉行個人生活中私密的日常儀式。(整理自展覽介紹)


“Give Me Yesterday,” curated by Francesco Zanot, will inaugurate the program of Osservatorio, Fondazione Prada’s new exhibition space located in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan and dedicated to photography and visual languages. The show includes works by 14 Italian and international artists, and explores the use of photography as a personal diary over a period of time ranging from the early 2000s through today. In a context characterized by the pervasive presence of photography devices and an uninterrupted circulation of images produced and shared through digital platforms, a generation of young artists has transformed the photographic diary into an instrument to focus on their own daily lives and intimate, personal rituals. 

The photographers presented in “Give Me Yesterday” turn the immediacy and spontaneity of documentary style into an extreme control over the gaze of those who observe and are observed. This creates a new diary in which instant photography is mixed with exhibition photography, imitating the repetitive cataloguing of the internet and employing the performative component of images to affirm individual or collective identities.
