Qatar National Library: Francesca Pompei: Sharada
AMACI present at the Qatar National Library a personal exhibition of Francesca Pompeii, Sharada. She sent us the following text.
When we encounter an architecture, the experience begins before entering the space, thanks to a visual context that incorporates a sort of animated geometry and a tenuous relationship between light and dark, so that the ingredients can be seen. in a moving way, in a dynamic and evocative energy.
This was my photographic approach to Doha.
The capital of Qatar is the first Arab metropolis chosen to host the FIFA World Cup in 2022. Waiting for flocks of tourists from all over the world, it transforms its urban skyline with works by prestigious architects such as Jean Nouvel, Rem Koolhaas, Arata Isozaki and Ieoh Ming Pei.
What is most astonishing is the grandeur of these hypermodern sites which stand out from a silent and solitary point of view, in a space “between” suspended in the known city and on the other side.
An enigmatic landscape, which evokes a metaphysical dimension, invites a journey through a magical fascination like The Thousand and One Nights.
