Encuentro con el fotógrafo García de Marina

April 2 5:30 – 7PM
Instituto Cervantes de Belgrado
Čika Ljubina 19, 11000 Belgrade, Serbia

La fotografía de García de Marina es profundamente irreverente con lo real, busca transformar e imprimir nuevas identidades a los objetos, se subleva ante lo obvio y repara en la grandeza de lo cotidiano. La desnudez de sus imágenes, deja todo el protagonismo a los objetos que son despojados de su esencia para ser reinventados. El artista busca dar emoción a un cubierto, a una cerilla o contar una historia, su propia historia, con una cáscara de un huevo.

García de Marina no realiza ninguna manipulación fotográfica en las imágenes, sino que transforma los objetos creando escenarios y busca la mejor perspectiva para fotografiarlos. Desde el minimalismo, la creatividad de su mirada reivindica otra realidad. Desde la observación podemos crear, desde la imaginación podemos innovar.

En esta charla con el director del festival Belgrade Photo Month nos hablará sobre su obra personal, mostrando fotografías de su evolución en la búsqueda y desarrollo de conceptos, de cómo llegó al mundo del objeto, y sobre las construcción y realización de las imágenes. También recordará dos de sus últimos proyectos más relevantes “Diálo2” e “Inocentes”.

Actividad en español con traducción simultánea al serbio. Entrada libre. Aforo limitado.

Protect photography

Organization of Belgrade Photo Month aims to raise awareness and knowledge of the citizens of Serbia on the photography and put Serbia on photography map of the world, but that our goal would be endangered and elusive if a proposal amending the interpretation of the Act on copyright and related rights is adopted, at tomorrow’s session of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia. All our efforts and work could be belittled and canceled, and the work of all other photographic associations, clubs, groups and individuals.

Please, in the name of all photographers and people of good will, do not adopt this proposal and thus cancel nearly 200 years of photographic history in Serbia.
