The little shop of heroes

Exhibition of Foto Marvellini

This series of portraits of fantastic heroes made by the collective Foto Marvellini joins the “play” theme.
The exhibition includes items from “La Piccola Bottega degli Eroi”, an imaginary laboratory of Milanese photographers and graphic artists living in an imagined past.

These works are attributable to an indefinite period of time, because they are made by mixing the taste of past ages with the themes of the most Pop contemporary. Illusory images that become real to the visitor’s eyes thanks to the authors’ imagination, technique and research. Sometimes ironic, sometimes troubling, yet always refined.

The exhibited pieces deceive the viewer, as always happens with the film art and rarely with photography – a reference to the cinema also indicated by the title of the personal exhibition paraphrasing that of a famous American comedy.
The vintage frame of the Cinesalotto is perfect for enjoying the Marvellini characters and their fantastic stories.
