Foreword by Francesco Zanot.
Interview with Francesco Jodice by Francesco Zanot.
published in June 2016
texts in English and Italian
21 x 27 cm (softcover)
144 pages (color ill.)
A deconstructed overview offering the widest selection of Jodice's works ever presented: more than twenty years of eclectic art—alternating between photography, videos and installations.
Panorama is a deconstructed anthology. It's exploded. Into bits. Francesco Jodice's whole career is examined through an intricate web of images and text. In no particular order. Combining the works with the material that went into their making: photos, maps, diagrams, films, newspaper cuttings, backstage footage, screen tests, writing… Taking a metabolic approach, it explores an entire universe of authorship, raising questions that spill over from art into the realms of politics, philosophy, anthropology, urban planning and geography.
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at Camera – Centro Italiano per la Fotografia, Torino, from March 11 to August 14, 2016.
Francesco Jodice (born 1967 in Naples, lives and works in Milan) is an Italian artist. His researches encompass changes in modern social landscape underlining new relevant phenomena in urban anthropology. His work explores the urgency for a common ground between art and geopolitics.
