The concert fittingly follows the public opening for Venice, from 2-5 p.m. of Blues/Polaroids by Alana Pierini.
Venice is a city that entrances, especially if arriving by boat across a luminous lagoon, to the vista of elegant, earth-toned, historical buildings. But the Venetian beauty is sinking as rubber boots are made higher to cope and the planks in San Marco become necessarily more numerous.
This slump in the spine of Venice is saddening for due to her aforementioned light and beauty. Artists, and culture hounds of all breeds, have loved Venice and still do.
In the screaming milieu of digital exposures and challenging media distractions, Pierini brings the sensibility of a more considered process – the retro imaging of the Polaroid format.Hers is a dual positioning, living in two countries, Canada and Italy, and from that advanced perspective as concern gains a foothold, the imagery shows a natural defensive reaction against the overturning of beauty.
As the image comes into comprehension a range of emotions, from awe through sadness to an invigorating resolve, forms and Venice gains a voice.
