Architectures of Life / Jitka Hanzlová
February 4 – April 24, 2021
Galleria Raffaella Cortese
Milan, Italy

Galleria Raffaella Cortese is delighted to present the fourth solo show by Czech photographer Jitka Hanzlová, following her first major presentation in her native country at the National Gallery Prague in 2019, SILENCES, curated by Adam Budak.

In the past 30 years Hanzlová has depicted, series after series, image after image, portraits of a world in which subjects exist in a non-hierarchical composition: people, nature, animals, architecture exist in a unity of sense, and yet, in all their specificity and contradicting moments. “A single pear tree does not make a forest – or does it?” asks Urs Stahel: can a single portrait, a single landscape, be telling signs of wholeness?

Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)

  • How we remember tomorrow

    University of Queensland Art Museum
    Brisbane, Australia

    How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives. Featured artists understand the watery spaces of our planet as ancestral archives: sources of knowledge that carry stories and cultural practices. Alongside their kin, they honour intergenerational narratives that are disseminated along ocean currents despite ongoing colonial legacies of forced displacement, homeland dispossession, indenture and the loss or dormancy of vital cultural practices.
