ReVisions of an Archive

Opening on May 4th, in the days of the Fotografia Europea festival, the exhibition ‘Tina Zuccoli. ReVisions of an Archive’ features a selection of photographs and documents taken from the “Tina Zuccoli” archive, which is part of the Fondazione Fotografia Modena historical archives. A contemporary reintepretation of the archive is proposed through a series of new photographs by Andrea Simi and several video interviews with people related to Tina Zuccoli.

The Zuccoli archive has been chosen for its richness and also for the peculiarity of the author: Tina Zuccoli (1928 – 2006), a primary school teacher with a passion for exploration and photography. Between the 1950s  and the 1970s Tina Zuccoli travelled the world extensively with his husband. She also joined an expedition to the Arctic Sea and was invited to Cape Canaveral to witness the launch of the Apollo 11.

Put in a dialogue with the archive are the photographs by Andrea Simi, who aimed at identifying connections and traces of the past in the present. Simi worked on this project without a prior planning, but rather with a cognitive intention based on direct experience; the same attitude is also to be found in the video interviews which accompany the visitors creating a  path of shared memories.
