Beschreibung:

New York, Italian Cultural Institute, 13 - 30 May 2008. Fotografie di Ugo Mulas. Saggi di Elena Geuna e Renato Miracco. Testo Italiano e Inglese. Milano, 2008; br., pp. 80, 14 ill. b/n, 17 ill. col., cm 17x21. (I Quaderni. 1). Italian artist Fausto Melotti (1901-1986) worked in plaster, ceramics and metal, and also wrote poetry. His work has been linked to Giacometti, Fontana, de Chirico and Calder. This volume collects drawings and poems by the artist, alongside a selection of rare black-and-white portraits and documentary photographs by Ugo Mulas. Originally educated as an electrical engineer, Fausto Melotti enrolled in art school in 1928, befriending Lucio Fontana, who became a lifelong friend. In the 1930s, Melotti created fanciful and dreamlike narratives embedded in small ceramic squares, continuing to work with ceramics and terra-cotta throughout the Second World War. In the 1940s he began collaborating with Domus magazine and published his first collection of poems. The day after his death, in 1986, the 42nd Venice Biennale opened with an exhibition of his work, posthumously awarding him the Golden Lion award. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: Self-reflection by celebrities tends to be fraught with unmentionable difficulties. Not, though, when the star in question is the ever intelligent, self-aware, articulate, and magnificent Isabella Rossellini. For years, a wall in the entrance of Rossellini's apartment has been covered in pictures taken of her by different photographers. Looking at the Me Wall, Rossellini writes that she never really saw herself; instead she saw the photographer's work, their ideas, and our collaboration in capturing fantasies. Looking at Me gathers together Rossellini's private collection of portraits taken of herself by some of the world's leading photographers, including Eve Arnold, Richard Avedon, Michel Comte, Patrick Demarchelier, Fabrizio Ferri, Horst P. Horst, Brigitte Lacombe, Annie Leibovitz, Peter Lindbergh, Robert Mapplethorpe, Steven Meisel, Irving Penn, Herb Ritts, Paolo Roversi, Ellen von Unwerth, and Bruce Weber, as well as filmmakers David Lynch and Wim Wenders. Rossellini invites us to join her as she looks at her favorite portraits, privileging us with her witty, humorous, and self-ironical comments. She traces her career, in photographs, from boxing reporter in Muhammad Ali's training camp to highly successful model, from actress in some of Hollywood's more controversial films to head of her own cosmetic line, Manifesto. Mixed in with these public images are pictures of Rossellini in private, with her children, her dog Macaroni, and her pig Spanky. Irresistibly charming, intelligent yet whimsical, Looking At Me proves the perfect complement to Rossellini herself.
