The exhibition, curated by Roberta Vanali e Efisio Carbone, celebrates Giovanni “Jo” Coda’s 25 year career.
Photographer, writer, video artist and director, Giovanni Coda, born in Cagliari in 1964, has authored 47 videos, a number of photographic series and installation projects, exhibited both in Italy and abroad. He boasts collaborations with artists, musicians and writers and his first feature-length film “Il Rosa Nudo” took part to the 70th Venice International Film Festival as Special Event.
Halfway between documentary and video art, “Il Rosa Nudo” is the first act of a trilogy focused on gender violence that retrace the Nazi horrors against homosexuals. The second chapter is the award-winning feature-length film "Bullied to Death", a social commentary about homophobic bullying, specifically cyber-bullying, a type of crime still not contemplated by law. The last episode of the trilogy, based on true facts, is “La sposa nel vento”, a movie about feminicide of which the photographic exhibition offers a preview.
The exhibition retraces Jo Coda’s 25 year career as a filmmaker and a photographer, relating one activity to the other. It is divided into three sections: Pictures, Cinema and Projections (the conference hall will be used as a projection room for the four films and the five short-films shot from 1994 to 2012, including “Il Rosa Nudo and “Bullied to Death”. Machina Amniotica, composed by Roberto Belli, is the background music that accompanies the visitor through the exhibition.
The exhibition area also hosts the V – art International Festival, a short-film contest created by Jo Coda in 1995.
