CRITICS

Title: Expression/Freedom
Author: Kei Kagami
Year: 2008

Probably there is no point in describing Marco Bolognesi as a photographer. Yes, his images are photographs but not really photography. They are something else beyond photography. Some people might call it art. Sure, there are many experimental compositions on his work. A film for him could be a canvas for a painter. As for me I don’t care much if it is art or not, after all, it is a work to express his imagination and it is something special and mysterious: simply it might be too original and unique to explain.

When I saw his work for the first time, two words EXPRESSION and FREEDOM, came across in my head. For a long time I tried to figure out his work with these two key words and a while after I noticed that these two words could be interestingly juxtaposed by prepositions in many ways, creating visionary equations such as E of F, F of E , F on E, E on F, E in F, F in E, F with E, E with F ( using expression =E and freedom=F).

Each of those relations of E and F are acceptable to his work making impossible to choose one among them to define and enclose Marco’s work into one title. In this sense his work has so many aspects and it is so powerful, the kind of power that it is brought to us by his originality and imagination drenched in every picture and every aspect of his world.

It is a pleasure and a joy to lose oneself into Marco’s project Woodland : as you may notice, Bolognesi focuses on women’s face as objects all the way through. And each image has unexpected accessories(including the spot-on make up and hair work ) which brings something surreal in it and create interesting compositions at the same time.

Marco’s work has the energy that comes from being the one responsible of the new creation and at the same time the ironic detachment of the spectator who admires and falls in love with the artist’s women too beautiful to belong to our time.
