  • About the artwork

    "D'où le choix de photographier les plantes, car elles représentent une sorte d'exotisme esthétique, comportemental, architectural et végétal de tout le lieu physique."

    - Giovanni Cocco

    La Garbatella et sa flore sont un secret romain bien gardé. Un quartier unique et exotique de Rome - fondé il y a près de 100 ans (en 1920) - il est connu pour son architecture basée sur des lots. Installé à l'origine par des colonialistes et leurs familles, le quartier regorge de plantes luxuriantes, apportées par des vétérans des guerres coloniales italiennes en Éthiopie, en Somalie, en Érythrée et en Libye.

    Bien que le cinéaste et acteur italien Nanni Moretti ait mené sa Vespa à travers le quartier dans son film de 1993 Caro Diario (Dear Diary) - mettant un peu le quartier dans la conscience collective, la Garbatella reste un trésor caché.

    Avec la série Plantarium Piccolo Atlante Botanico della Garbatella, Giovanni Cocco offre un aperçu de ce trésor alors qu'il dévoile la flore et la végétation du quartier - ses espaces verts fascinants. Giovanni Cocco parvient ainsi à préserver son mystère tout en faisant évoluer la nature morte dans cette série éloquente.

Giovanni Cocco

Born in: 1973 Italy

Giovanni Cocco

Translation in progress

Giovanni Cocco (Sulmona, 1973) is a versatile visual artist and photographer. His images brim with edginess. Whether from the series "Burladies", where his camera paints the women of burlesque in hues of vibrant, almost exagerated splashes of color or from his newest series "Plantarium", where still lifes of plants sway with movement.

From 2013, Giovanni Cocco has turned his eye to the phenomenon of displacement, selecting a series of European cities which, as a phenomenon of capitalism, are emptying and depopulating . Beginning with Venice, in the series "A che ora chiude Venezia" the result is an observation of the beauty of these same sites, of its people, of architecture. Offering a suspended view of our reality that translates into deep conceptual shapes.

His work has been presented in installations and exhibitions worldwide, including Art Basel Scope Miami, ZonaMaco foto, Mexico City, MART – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Trento and Rovereto (Italy) and MACRO - Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome (Italy).
