Irene Kung: The Invisible City
Library Shelf Location 18.KUNG
Publication Date 2012
Description The urban space look and revisited by Irene Kung becomes, through her camera, a different, silent and motionless space. An area that we know, because we recognize the monuments that make it up – extracts from the memory of the city, from their past or their future, futuristic – and partly surprising. Rome, New York, London, Madrid, Boston, Milan, Beijing... cities where Irene Kung moves are magical places, fascinating, full of enigmatic presence, invisible cities and yet so practical. Trough his photographs, Irene Kung takes us into a dream world, and if the monuments are recognizable, are immersed in another reality. Velasca Tower and the Duomo in Milan, or the Empire State Building in New York as the Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome, these shots are immersed in an almost fairy-tale. Viewed differently, the cities and the spaces can be finally understood. The volume is accompanied by the text of Francine Prose, author of several novels published by Harper Collins, and an essay by Ludovico Pratesi, journalist, curator and art critic Italian.
