POSITION(S) – Antoine d’Agata
This project, conceived and executed by Giuliana Prucca with the photographer’s approval and close collaboration, seeks to depict Antoine d’Agata’s quest – “the inexorable course from void to void”.
With thoughtful stylistic choices, accurate studies on contents and a particular attention to the quality of subjects and materials, Giuliana Prucca introduces her activity as indipendent publisher specialised in international art and photo books. For this purpose, she would like to distinguish Position(s) from other publications and catalogues of Antoine d’Agata and make the book a creation in itself, which however doesn’t disassociate aesthetics from experience and meaning, thus considering the photographic practice rst and foremost as an existential choice and a form of resistance.
The book is composed as a montage of texts and pictures, where words, sometimes descriptive, sometimes poetic, intersect with images in a narrative continuity. It combines the most concrete and signi cant examples of Antoine d’Agata’s activity with his more abstract body of thought following a process of inclusion whicis already apparent in the photographer’s approach to life and art and which often translates into serial images and sequences “with neither beginning nor ending” and into a series of references, echoes and word repetitions.
The book’s graphic form seeks to re ect the meaning of d’Agata’s research which paradoxically leads toward the subject’s disappearance and the ego’s negation within the neutral spectrum of the image while insisting on an intimate involvement with its subject and a perfect amalgamation of art and life. It thereby places photography in the context of anonymity which is that of universal expression.
