European festival of nude photography : Maurizio Galimberti


By way of the body, the study of the feminine nude, and a tangle of references and quotations from Giacomo Balla to the works of Man Ray and Moholy-Nagy, Maurizio Galimberti’s photographs show their own imaginations.

Creativity and design are the principal characterisics of this technique, particularly mosaic, an instrument through which he has found a means of expressing dynamism.

The artist approaches the theme of the nude like a private journal, private albums, a geometric narrative and the shapes of the female body.

It is an existential story, an exercise aimed at breaking up the space in which the figure of a woman moves, a woman who appears to be dismantled, divided up like a broken object and then put back together in different forms by the spontaneity and superimposing of the artist’s vision.

This staging of a perceptible and sensual eroticism is an obsessional but unwholesome exploration of a re-appropriated world that goes beyond the model’s physique.

Arianna simultaneously represents a female microcosm and macrocosm, the obstinacy of Galimberti’s creative potential, characterised in space-time by unceasing dynamism and unique futurist tensions.

In addition to the works of the title, this work is composed of several quotations and references: from Wally Neuzil’s obsession with Egon Schiele to Giacomo Balla’s dynamism, from Eadweard Muybridge’s chronophotography to “Nude descending a staircase” Marcel Duchamp; by compositions and poems marking the obvious parallels with Man Ray and Moholy-Nagy.
