Forest Gallery - Exhibition "10 Postcards from the Engadine

La Punt Chamues-ch
10 Postcards from the Engadine 100 years after Albert Steiner Photographs by Margherita Lazzati Curated by Galleria l'Affiche - Milan Margherita Lazzati has been travelling in the Engadine since she was born and, like many others, has photographed it widely, but always the same mountains from the same positions, in different seasons, in different years and at different times of day. This open-air exhibition of large-format photographs, 10 Postcards from the Engadine, 100 years after Albert Steiner (1877-1965) refers to those pictures which he was one of the first to turn into postcards. These were sent all over the world at the beginning of the 20th century. The landscapes, the horizons, the spectacular glacier landscapes, the light at high altitudes remained the same protagonists. Steiner's visions were quiet, warm, almost romantic, sometimes harmonious (it is not by chance that the title of the 2008 exhibition at the Museo Civico di Piazza del Santo in Padua was- Albert Steiner. The Sublime Landscape). After 100 years of world and photographic history, and in a time when postcards are posted on Instagram, the same places appear to us in Margherita Lazzati's vision in an almost dramatic black and white, with stark contrast, without the reassuring distance offered by a sepia tone, and with the topicality and urgency of reportage. "Margherita Lazzati, as always, has written, painted, narrated and created rhythms with her little Leica: at the centre of her attention, more than an ecstatic research or a technical urgency, is always the sense of an everyday and absolute reality, which she approaches with shyness, emotion, determination, but also with an almost surgical clarity". The exhibition is accompanied by a competition to win a painting from the exhibition. Access to the Forest Gallery is signposted from the Chamues-ch village square.
