Max Miechowski’s Land Loss follows the artist’s deep interest in the British landscape, exploring themes of time, community and resilience. These absorbing portraits, landscapes and delicate details are captured with Miechowski’s characteristic sensitivity, presenting a quiet space of contemplation. In the work, natural cycles and geological erosion act as gentle and sometimes abrupt reminders of loss and impermanence. As Miechowski learns by observing this seaside community, “we too are as temporary as the cliffs”. At a time of social and ecological upheaval, Land Loss reconnects us to the environment, and creates an extended metaphor where great uncertainty, compassion and care is carried by the landscape. Recalling his experience of visiting, photographing and witnessing this changing community.

The images in this book, collected under the title Works for a Cosmic Feeling, create a map, and an ode at the same time. They map out the universe of the author, the constellations that guide him and inspire his wonderings, the pathways and crossroads where he gets lost and finds himself back again. Just like god and the devil being hidden in details, Barile’s images oscillate in a constant flux of conscience, a rigorous yet abstract system of reference that includes and connects, builds and constantly destroys. There are no certainties nor statements, rather associations, at times vertigo. Just like in a quantum system, the narratives included are drenched in probability and chance. Nature is what encompasses all things, whether dissected in its traces and remains or triumphant in its decadence and complexity.

“There is a secret bond between slowness and memory, between speed and forgetting. A man is walking down the street. At a certain moment, he tries to recall something, but the recollection escapes him. Automatically, he slows down. Meanwhile, a person who wants to forget a disagreeable incident he has just lived through starts unconsciously to speed up his pace, as if he were trying to distance himself from a thing still too close to him in time. In existential mathematics that experience takes the form of two basic equations: The degree of slowness is directly proportional to the intensity of memory; the degree of speed is directly proportional to the intensity of forgetting.”
Milan Kundera, Slowness

Bringing together the artist’s own photographs, found
archival material, handmade drawings, oral accounts
and extracts from literature, Lay Her Down Upon
Her Back looks at the history of medical mistreatment
and uneven power relations between male doctors and
female patients through a type of photography where
evidence itself plays the role of symptom. For both
in photography and in hysteria it is the surface that
carries meaning and depth, providing the space onto
which meaning plays out.

Vaste Programme. Immaginario, autentico. Project winner of the public contest “Strategia Fotografia 2022”, promoted by Direzione Generale Creatività Contemporanea of the Italian Ministry of Culture

In the fusion of place and soul, the soul is as much of a container of place as place is a container of soul, and both are susceptible to the same forces of destruction.
(Robert Pogue Harrison)

If the house is the place of soul and memory, what happens when it crumbles?
Presence and memory, time and decay, reversals of sense and approach are the main pillars of the research that Vaste Programme developed starting from two abandoned mansions. A metaphorical visual and textual reflection on the passing of time that consumes and alters everything, with Come si fa la marmellata the artists invite us, with the lightness and the depth which characterizes their work, to change our approach with reality. Without denying facts, they look for creative and playful solutions to face the passing of time and its consequences.
If time and bushes invade and destroy the houses, at least blackberries can be used to make jam...
