Shop • GoSee Book Tip : Francesca Catastini 'Petrus' – a subtle study of beautiful objects and the human drive to find a definite form, appearing at Kehrer Publishing

07.08.2019 • As a wonderful coffee table book this week, we recommend 'Petrus' by Francesca Catastini, appearing at Kehrer Publishing. This at first glance seemingly incoherent collection of photos of beautiful objects opens up a second perspective when you read the intention of the photographer. Francesca Catastini (*1982) studied Photography and Visual Design (MA) at the NABA in Milan and has already exhibited internationally. We bring you a sneak peek at the book here on GoSee, and more is available on Vimeo.

“Petrus reflects on a certain rhetoric of masculinity in Western culture.” says Kehrer Publishing, and continues: “It is about the human drive to define ourselves and the world through a definite form. Form is never stable though. It is the ever-changing result of a never-ending tension between forces pushing from within and pressures coming from without. Through a cynical, tender, and arbitrary analysis of what probably cannot be sliced and diced, Francesca Catastini plays with archetypes and images considering the way they sculpt ourselves and shape our views.

Shop • GoSee Book Tip : 'Oyster' by Marco Marzocchi, his extremely personal visual diary about childhood memories and the relationship to his parents who died at an early age

01.08.2019 • Made over the course of 10 years, 'Oyster' is a visual diary compiled by Marco Marzocchi (born 1974 in Ferrara, Italien) as a way to uncover clues in understanding his absent parents. At times bordering on frustration and violence, his images express his search for a 'culprit', a cause for his disfunctional childhood environment. Using archival and original imagery, the artist ransacks the past to build a present in a process of forgiving and letting go, in search of love and healing.

“This work represents my experience in recovering and understanding my parents, their lives and their relationship towards myself. I never knew them well because they split when I was 6 years old, and they both died young. Drugs, addictions, jail and a dysfunctional environment, these were constant elements. This work is focused on dealing with and replacing all the doubts and the fears that I had. Exorcizing the pain and the search for love.” Marco Marzocchi.


About - Marco Marzocchi's photography is the search for people, atmospheres and places of the past, mixed with the present in order...
