Andreana SCANDERBER and Alexander SAUER work together as SANDERBERG SAUER since 2005. The exhibition, curated by Camilla Boemio, shows both contract works, in which SCANDERBER SAUER present industries and their products from their attractive side, and also personal projects highlighting the downside of global economy.
Camilla Boemio about the exhibition : "The exhibition aims to introduce the viewer in the various series made in the last ten years by photographers Andreana Scanderbeg Sauer & Alexander, skilled narrators of control technologies. In their achievements there is confidence in technological innovation, the beauty of contemporary architecture; showing a better expression of urban life changing. Each snapshot shows that immortalizing architecture isn’t less complex than capturing the right expression of a face in a portrait.
The exhibition narrates people and urban worlds through the built landscape, considering photography as an ambitious and perhaps more suited tool to document it, rather than the symbiosis between the two disciplines, 'Iconic Geography' describes how a photographical path can help orient the eye: from envisaged life around impassable sites, to the analysis of industrial impact on the territory and how to develop the work in industrial contexts. The photographers have explored many different geographical places on the edge of civilization where mankind often capitulates and surrenders. In these aesthetically perfect images they have evoked the glorious past of iconic aircrafts that are abandoned in the desert, whose carcasses tells us about journeys, enhancing the lines and shapes.
In the new series, 'Chavalon', they have captured the morbid beauty of progress and identified an appearance of loss of control.Goods, trains, ships, production processes and industrial landscapes fill the outskirts of the world; describing to us about progress and movements, journeys and worlds made of work in which people in the companies apply technologies and innovation...."
