The exhibition presents more than one hundred works, from the seminal experiments with photographic language conducted in the sixties and seventies down to a new series, Attesa (“Waiting”, 2015), produced specially for this retrospective project.
Set within a unique exhibit design, this survey intertwines all Jodice’s major series, in which the principal aspects and themes of his 50 years of research are articulated.
By linking the ancient Mediterranean civilizations to the contemporary megalopolises Jodice explores the persistence of the past in the identity of the present, reveals the epiphanies of everyday life embodying an archetypical anthropology of common objects, fills the void between the dimension of chronicle and the tension towards abstraction.
A section of the exhibition is also devoted to the social matrix and civil commitment of his works produced in the seventies, shown as a new cinematic projection: Teatralità quotidiana a Napoli (“Everyday Theatricality in Naples, 2016).
In its various linked sections, the exhibition evokes a circular space-time, cyclically returning on itself, on its foundational reasons and its inspirational motives, out of which emerges a true “photographic reality.”
