In 2010, Filippo Minelli started taking photos of smoke-bombs in romantic landscapes to juxtapose the beauty of nature with the violence of a medium devoted to create chaos with a stunning result. These powerful images, taken in various areas around Europe, had been featured in Art exhibitions like the Venice Biennale, published in various magazines and got a lot of visibility thanks to many Art and Design-related websites.

About Filippo Minelli

“Filippo Minelli forces the occasional viewer of his artworks, and the people fond of his artworks too, to an intellectual gym, stimulating scratching contrasts in our minds. Following conceptual tendences, Minelli pursues a non-objectual dimension of Arts searching relations between the work of art and reality, with culture and social behaviours […]. In Minelli’s interventions is investigated the theme of Arts as writing with a resolute “interventist” urge which charges the artist’s action with social-disobedience, instigating the viewer against the superficial and the commercial and cultural deadness of contemporary society. Sometimes Minelli organizes his interventions in series which evolve during the years.

The second essential element of the artistic production of Filippo Minelli is photography as a narration of the installations. Reflecting Walter Benjamin’s precepts, the point of view of the artist uses photography as a way to tell a story. The work of art is presented tracing contrasts and inconsistences between the location choosen and the linguistic-conceptual contribution. Language and image coincide in the photograph, gragging along conscious and sub-conscious thoughts.”
