“Nonostante Tutto” exhibition by Riccardo Bononi at Spazio Tadini in Milan

January 22, 2020

On Friday January 24th, opens in Milan the exhibition “Nonostante Tutto” by Riccardo Bononi
that will be on display in Milano at Spazio Tadini till February 23rd.
Curated by Federica Paola Capecchi, the exhibition offers a selection of 4 reportages that are the result of 12 years in Madagascar: Generation Graveyad, The Red Island and the Black Death, The Cities of Flies and Una belle vie, Une Belle Mort. 43 photographs that propose a careful anthropological analysis, a subtle and demanding social, ethical report. Because despite everything, you can and must live.
 
The most outstanding cultural feature all across Madagascar is the unique relationship that connect malagasy people to the death: they consider it as a simple step of the human development, conceptually not different from the transit between the childhood and the adult life. Being dead doesn’t mean to have come to an end. Dead bodies, as well as newborns, can’t talk, can’t walk nor eat by themselves, but that doesn’t mean that corpses can’t feel regular needs: they can still get bored, hungry, happy or lonely.
