Un viaggio attraverso il paesaggio urbano dell’ex Unione Sovietica, emblema di un paesaggio noioso perché ripetitivo nella sua vastità. Il sottile limite tra realtà e finzione che percorre le fotografie, attraverso l’immaginario dichiarato e ricercato delle cartoline postali degli anni ’70, ci porta, repentinamente, qualche decennio addietro.
«Possiamo dire che è difficile sapere se Marco Citron sta documentando la pianificazione urbanistica dell’era sovietica o la sta inventando» (dal testo di Gerry Badger).
A journey along the urban landscape of ex-soviet countries, the very symbol of a boring landscape because it is so repetitive and so vast.
The thin line between reality and fiction that runs through the photographs, through that imagination both open and eagerly sought, which takes us – suddenly – several decades into the past.
«We might say that it is difficult to know wheter Marco Citron is recording some of the planning conceits of the Soviet era, or inventing them» (from the text by Gerry Badger).
