Luca Andreoni - Le mie notti sono più belle dei vostri giorni
Le mie notti sono più belle dei vostri giorni, my nights are more beautiful than your days, is a tribute to love: from its more universal expressions, like the passion for cinema and photography, to its more intimate and personal forms, like the relationships of love that connect human beings.
Set up inside the Cineteca of Bologna, where over 70,000 films are preserved, the series runs along a double track: while some large format images evoke the rooms of this temple of memories, the smaller size prints, displayed individually or composed together to form a large installation, are meant as an exploration of the archives on the part of the artist who, making through photography a selection of inspiring film titles, recreates the typical narrative structure of a love story.
The exhibition, curated by Francesca Lazzarini, is part of the Trieste Film Festival calendar of events.
Luca Andreoni (1961) is one of the most prolific authors among Italian contemporary photographers.
His early involvement in the artistic field of landscape photography, sustained by a scrupulous and yet poetical research, has led him to the intense expressions of the strong symbolic values that characterize his work.
His rigorous work has gained attention in the world of photography and contemporary art and many prestigious institutions have requested his participation in important exhibitions and publications. His work has been included in prominent collections, such as those owned by the Deutsche Bank, the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and others.
Alongside his artistic and professional activity also boasts extensive experience as a teacher. Since 2013 he has been Professor of Photography at the Accademia di Belle Arti G. Carrara, Bergamo. Since 2009 he has been Guest Professor at the Master in Photography and Visual Design organized by Forma in collaboration with NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, Milano. Since 1990, he has been teaching at the Scuola di Specializzazione in Storia dell'Arte at the Università Cattolica, Milano, as a teacher of the "Laboratory of Art Photography". He has held courses of Photography at Fondazione Fotografia, Modena, at the Accademia di Belle Arti, Bologna and at the Accademia di Belle Arti Aldo Galli, Como. He also taught in many workshops and has given lectures in public institutions such as the Politecnico, Milano, the Italian Institute of Culture, Warsaw, Fondazione Fotografia, Modena, and at photography festivals and art fairs. Between 2008 and 2013 he curated in Valle d'Aosta a residence for young artists and students from art and photography schools.
