Carola Guaineri: homage to Milan and its battle

March 2020. Milan is in lockdown to stop the infection with Coronavirus. He lives his battle. Carola Guaineri enters her dark room, where darkness is a friend and images emerge silently in the development trays. A rough desert englobes the Cathedral. Milan today lives among its dunes. Crowded spaces and empty spaces, choirs in the distance and a close silence. People who disappear and souls waiting to re-live

Covering the later 17th century, from the restoration of Charles II in 1670 (his father Charles I had been executed in the aftermath of the English Civil War) to the death of Queen Anne in 1714, it explores the overlap between art and power in this often-overlooked era
