Asian Dub Photography
Asian Dub Photography presents the works of twenty-one of Asia’s most important contemporary artists. It is the first step in the creation of a new collection of contemporary photography by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena.
The exhibition, curated by Filippo Maggia, is an essential tool for a deeper understanding of the multi faced reality of visual arts in a part of the world which is living today a phase of constant and vibrant change.
In the Far East and in Southeast Asia the high-tech future intersects daily with the past in a continual interplay of interpretations and revisiting of ancient cultures and traditions, producing the tangible result of infinite images. This is all manifested in redundant and relentless ways: with a whole array of changing subtitles that return like faraway echoes, the ill-prepared visitor is surprised by such clamour, but at the same time is seduced by its harmony and its apparently unexplainable equilibrium. Like a great mosaic where every piece is interchangeable, a wave of images that reach us as if diluted, suspended. A fluctuating reality that comes and goes continually, in a loop composed of many episodes that enchant and never bore.
