In Donetta’s photographs nothing seems frozen. Looking at them there is a feeling of beginning. The characters, scenes, objects and atmospheres seem clear and free of the weight of unnecessary information, and captured with a tenderness equal to the beauty of the compositions.
While the complicity between Donetta and those around him shape his photographs, complicity also happens to be the essence of this exhibition, conceived with the artist Natsuko Uchino, the film-maker Rose Lowder and the florist Marie Varenne alongside works by Cyprien Gaillard, Provence’s ex-votos and a painting by Vincent van Gogh.
Thanks to this catalogue, the exhibition Complicity is enriched with texts by Roberto Donetta’s researchers and specialists such as Marco Franciolli, Gian Franco Ragno, Matthias Böhni, David Streiff, Peter Pfrunder et Antonio Mariotti. It also contains a conversation with Natsuko Uchino and Emanuele Coccia and texts by the exhibition curators Bice Curiger and Julia Marchand.
