Kate McBride Poems & Polaroids I Journey With You Here

Dal 28 maggio al 30 giugno 2010 l’area espositiva Agora Z di Palazzo Strozzi propone l’affascinante mostra della regista e scrittrice Kate McBride: Poems & Polaroids I Journey With You Here. L’artista racconta, attraverso gli scatti della sua polaroid, un viaggio sensibile ed emozionante, che l’ ha portata a scoprire le terre delle Alpi francesi, l’Andalusia, Firenze, l’Oceano Pacifico fino a raggiungere le sconfinate pianure del Kansas. Ogni foto porta con se i profumi, i colori e le sensazioni degli attimi vissuti in quei luoghi e le poesie, scritte in quei momenti, imprimono nella mente della McBride in maniera nitida gli istanti trascorsi e le emozioni provate. L’esposizione rappresenta un diario di viaggio in cui ogni pagina conserva le immagini e i pensieri scritti degli anni dal 1989 al 2006. Le opere sono costituite da una serie di litografie con polaroid stampate su carta e poesie stampate con macchina da scrivere.

Publisher's Description

With this new book, Kate McBride invites us to journey with her as armchair travelers through eighty-four poems and more than two-hundred Polaroids. The milkiness, the painterly, almost ethereal look of the images and the poetic record of a place and time create what McBride describes as dreamscapes.

Kate McBride. Poems & Polaroids
I Journey With You Here
28/05/10 > 30/06/10 - Firenze 

La mostra nello spazio espositivo Agora Z a palazzo Strozzi trae origine dalle immagini istantanee, dal fascino della Polaroid. La qualità unica ed eterea della pellicola, suggerisce attraverso gli scatti, momenti e sensazioni, impressioni di viaggi; evoca profumi, colori, atmosfere di luoghi.
Un panorama onirico attraverso paesaggi molto distanti tra loro - dalle Alpi francesi al Kansas – ma con un legame intimo ed universale.
McBride scrive poesie legate agli attimi e ai pensieri ispirati dalle occasioni ritratte nelle fotografie, una sorta di “poesia visiva”.
L’esposizione propone attraverso una serie di litografie, la corrispondenza tra l’immagine fermata, stampata su carta fatta a mano e la sensazione poetica digitata con la macchina da scrivere Smith-Corona Sterling.
Kate McBride lavora come scrittrice e regista, vive tra Vancouver, Firenze e Nizza. Il suo progetto attuale Poems & Polaroids. I Journey With You Here attinge da diari di viaggio degli anni 1989-2006.
