Giovanni Cocco

Giovanni Cocco (Sulmona, 1973) is an image artist, a poliedric photographer. His own style and his various concepts, as a result of his continuous research and inspiration, pass through different technical means of photography, that become in his hands powerful communication channels of his way to view. He always had a great variety of themes to capture, faced with an edge always different; starting with “Monia”, a poetic series about his disabled sister, become a book in 2016 and so on with “Burladies”, in which he shows, as a pioneer, the emerging women Burlesque world in Italy, even became a book in 2017. Moreover, on an assignment for the Italian magazine L’Espresso with the journalist Fabrizio Gatti, he created ‘Moving Walls’, a story about the condition of migrants in the Europe borders. After many years in the greatest International and national magazines/ newspapers (L’Espresso, La Repubblica, L’Internazionale, Newsweek, Mare, Le Monde, National Geographic), during which he also joined VII International Agency (2010 – 2012) he focused himself and his work on a different perspective of social issues, an introspective input towards anthropological topics. From 2013, he analyzes the phenomenon of displacement, that strikes inhabitants of some European historical cities which are emptying and depopulating of its citizens as a consequence of the capitalism. This approach is now evolving into observation of the Beauty of these same sites, of people, of architecture, that is an evanescent and fleeting value of our reality and that he’s photographically translating in a deep conceptual shapes. His projects have brought him numerous awards and grant and have been presented as installations and or exhibitions in festivals, galleries, fair and museum worldwide, including Art Basel Scope Miami, ZonaMaco foto, Mexico City, MART – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Trento and Rovereto and MACRO, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome. He is engaged with educational activities, teaching workshops and he is one of the teacher of the WSP Masterclass from five years. He’s now represented as artist by ILEX photo gallery (Rome) and Arte Globale gallery (London).

    The Garbatella and its flora are a well-kept Roman secret. It is an exotic and unique neighbourhood – founded in February 1920, so next to its centenary – known for its architecture based on lots, a particular kind of public housing with buildings designed according to “Barocchetto romano” style and to English Garden City Movement model.

    The neighbourhood is an un imitated little urban island, with the highest ratio, in Italy of those years, between built-up surface and “private” green spaces, that are, for generations, social sites and still live on only thanks to the care of its residents.

    Hence the choice to photograph plants, because they represent a kind of aesthetic, behavioral, architectural and vegetational exoticism of the entire physical place.

    With this series I want to offer a glimpse of this treasure unveiling the neighbourhood’s flora and vegetations – its enthralling green spaces. Trying to preserve its mystery while giving movement to still life.
