The new project of Francesco Jodice is a series of photographs, a film and a conversation with Alfredo Cramerotti. Held in the space of the Michela Rizzo gallery on the Giudecca, the artists presents a constellation of irrational splinters, cut off from the daily: small objects and minimal informations, contrasted with atemporal photographic landscapes, vast, motionless, on a spatial scale that we are able to perceive, but not to control.

The exhibition is an overflight on several social conventions that are on the brink of collapse or of developing into something else. Weaving together his photographic and visual approach with American b-movies such as ‘Society’ (1989), books such as ‘The Corrections’ (2010), vintage videogames and the literary works of H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937), Jodice constructs a universe of pieces of reality that would resemble our daily conventions if it were not for the minimal and inappropriate imbalances. But the differences and the minimal scraps, here as elsewhere, are important.
