Ariete artecontemporanea, in Bologna, Italy, presents a solo show of the American photographer Beth Moon at the gallery’s venue. In her suite Thy Kingdom Come, she captures the weird equilibrium between the innocence of childhood and some dark shadows of the nature, revealing a magical and instinctive focus on time, reminiscence and nature (fundamental themes in Moon’s photos) contributing to a better understanding of the place of humans in the universe. On stage also photos from her suites Diamond Nights and Olive trees (dedicated to ancient Italian showing olive trees against night skies, recently presented at the MUSE – Science Museum, in Trento, together with the graphic works by the Italian artist Federica Galli).
Beth Moon tells stories about centuries old trees: her quest to photograph them like they were green monuments has taken her across the five Continents.
