Petrov Ahner | Paris 26th floor
After 3 years of exile you decide to go back to Paris. It is a typical, middle of January winter. No snow; grey sky; rainy; cold but not freezing. Arriving in Paris you realise you feel at home right away. More than in Berlin, the city you live in now. Now you are back in the city you lived in for most of your life. You want to take photos; impressions, but you don′t know exactly what and how.
By chance you live in this apartment on the 26th Floor with a view out to the suburbs of Paris. You are in the kitchen drinking a coffee in the morning, looking out of the window. Watching the raindrops, taking your camera and knowing what to do. Because it is poetic, melancholic, mysterious and there is light. Just as you feel and just as Paris is for you. Just a “caprice”. No concept, just emotions. A little peek out of the window. And a little intimate book: unpretentious and private. Declaring my love again to this city and the surprising view it sometimes offers you.

Nach 3 Jahren Exil beschließt du zurückzukommen und Paris zu besuchen. Es ist ein typischer Januar. Kein Schnee, grauer Himmel, regnerisch kalt, aber nicht eisig. In Paris angekommen fühlst Du dich sofort zu Hause, mehr als in Berlin, der Stadt, in der Du jetzt lebst. Jetzt bist Du zurück in der Stadt, in der du die längste Zeit gelebt hast. Du willst Fotos machen, aber du weißt nicht wie und was. Zufälligerweise wohnst du im 26. Stock mit Blick auf das „Banlieue” von Paris. Du bist morgens in der Küche, trinkst einen Kaffee und schaust aus dem Fenster, beobachtest die Regentropfen, nimmst deine Kamera und weißt, was Du machen musst. Weil es poetisch ist, melancholisch, mysteriös und leicht. Genau wie Du fühlst und wie Paris für dich ist. Nur eine Laune von Dir. Kein Konzept, nur Gefühle. Ein kleiner Blick aus dem Fenster. Ein kleines intimes Buch, unprätentiös und privat. Wieder deine Liebe zu dieser Stadt erklärend und die überraschende Aussicht, die es Dir manchmal bietet.

Barbara Fragogna |  Nest of Dust
Contemporary art is today, is today?
When a “Nest Of Dust” can be conceptualized in an essay in three volumes.
I remember vividly how it unexpectedly showed up to me, pompous and perky: Master Piece, my first Nest Of Dust. It was summer, I moved to Padua two years earlier and the apartment where I used to live with two friends, the Holy Women, was already full of my junk. I was sitting sipping a coffee when a strong gust of wind stirred some shapeless agglomerations from behind the kitchen-closet and, with the fury of a vocation, it rolled between my legs, THE destiny.

Barbara Fragogna | Everyday Renaissance (After All…)

(google translation concept for low budget projects)
Let′s cut the Gordian knot. Everyday Renaissance needs no explanation. You can tell. It′s clear. You can interpret it in some different levels, it depends only on the key you have in your hand (… ‘And one man in his time plays many parts…’ ∗).
— For those who are not easily satisfied:

in Everyday Renaissance ( After All… ) there is no staging. This is life. The not–beauty of the banality. It′s a joke, an ironic game, a quote. There is more Pirandello than Viola, more Woolf than Sherman, more De Angelis than Modugno, more Sally than Charlie (Brown).
 quote by William Shakespeare, As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII
[All the world′s a stage]
