YOGURT FLAVOURS
CALL FOR ENTRIES

Yogurt’s Flavours are biannual publications curated and published by Yogurt Magazine

|eng|

In permitting man, Nature has committed much more than a mistake in her calculations: a crime against herself.

Emil Cioran, The Trouble with Being Born, 1973

Wildness is an exploration of the relationship that has always connected us to nature. Throughout history, human beings have tried to contemplate or dominate, to understand or exploit it. Magic, religion, science are only attempts to understand the inconceivable, to survive in this world and within ourselves.
Nature is a wounded but always present mother, who continues to assist us, although now exhausted by our resistances.

In the next Yogurt flavour, we want to create a visual compendium that will stage this complex relationship. We, therefore, invite the artists to deepen the theme both from a historical and a contemporary point of view.
The call is open to all kinds of interpretations, iconographic investigations, and manipulations of the photographic medium or of already existing archives.
Visual metaphors, nuances, documentary, or descriptive photographs. Everything can contribute to the construction of this collective reflection.

Permettendo l’uomo, la natura ha commesso molto più che un errore di calcolo: ha commesso un attentato contro sé stessa.

Emil Cioran, L’inconveniente di essere nati, 1973

Wildness è un’indagine sul rapporto che da sempre ci lega alla natura.
Nel tempo l’essere umano ha cercato di contemplarla o di dominarla, per comprenderla e asservirla. Magia, religione, scienza sono solo tentativi di comprendere l’inconcepibile, di sopravvivere al mondo e a noi stessi.
La natura è una madre ferita ma sempre presente, che continua ad assisterci, seppur ormai sfiancata dalle nostre resistenze.

Nel prossimo flavour di Yogurt vogliamo creare un compendio visuale che vada a mettere in scena questo rapporto complesso. Chiediamo quindi agli artisti di approfondire il tema sia da un punto di vista storico che contemporaneo.
Yogurt è aperto a manipolazioni di ogni tipo, archivio, mise-en-scène, ricerca iconografica, nuovi linguaggi. Metafore visuali, suggestioni, cronaca e documentario. Tutto può contribuire alla costruzione di questa riflessione collettiva.
