The exhibition Two sides of the mirror represents a new beginning for both the artists and the gallery. Irena and Marcella will exhibit for the first time in Italy and the Atelier Home Gallery will host its first exhibition about photography. This show is a photography exhibition that focuses on women represented as spiritual and physical human beings in all their different expressions, emotions and (un)desirable social conditions. Irena Fabri and Marcella Zanki, with their photographs, want to show and divide women in two opposite states of mind (the spiritual and the strong emotional one) to give a personal review and interpretation of the female nature. Irena Fabri deals with the spiritual as well as the enigmatic side of female existence. The photographs summarise all these elements by capturing intimate moments. Although being a woman herself, Irena fully matches a certain way to react that allows her to achieve an intimate and thoughtful standing accomplished by shooting her models. The captured moments in her photographs lead to the fragile female character and show the harmony dichotomy combined with a certain amount of melancholy. The photographs are not completely harmonious but have the power of expression and emotional effect aiming to symbolise the essence of female nature that is not completely visible and available to mere sensory perception. Such a spiritual approach of the artist wants to point out the hidden contents of small and intimate moments materialised through photography. The displayed moments provoke a remarkable feeling and emotion in both the beginning and the end of the process of communication between the artist, the photograph and the observer. Marcella Zanki shows the wild and vigorous female world, beyond the spiritual one, by adding in her photographs the emotional charge of a woman. The result is completely opposite of Irena Fabri approach. She places her models in a pre-designed scenography wishing to capture what distorts the female aesthetics. Independence, self-sufficiency, strong character and determination are only some features that make the aura of Marcella’s photographs. The dose of primitivism is astonishing, giving to the photographs the basic principle of self-sufficiency which is actually one of the main direction in the works of Marcella Zanki. This “wild” represents an exceptionally sensual element pointed to the mental and psychological traits that is not common in women on daily basis. An external observer may come to the assumption that these kind of photographs do not have only a meaning but also represent the artist’s expression of an ideology related to “other” female nature viewed from the “raw” perspective of a male person. The models, that were in front of the artist’s camera, symbolically break the myth of heterosexual norms. Each photograph emanates daring female power facing the passive observers and waiting for their reaction or not. Redefining the concept of women in this way, the public will break-up the established conventional “meaning” of a woman. Free from layers and rules, prurient to the appropriate extent, the women, in the photographs of Marcella Zanki, call for freedom, ask for a sort of rebellion and build their new world, the world of different reasons and logics. The series of photographs, therefore, reveal moral irregularities, deviations and distortions, and allude to the decomposition and breaking of verbal and behavioral norms.

ATELIER HOME GALLERY Atelier Home Gallery organizes exhibitions and happenings at the historical home of a family of two artists, Roberto del Frate and Roberta de Jorio, presenting contemporary artists to investigate how artworks fit in a living space that has a more intimate feeling. Inside this living space there are two different realities: the gallery (hosting art exhibitions and industrial design showcases) and the Atelier of Roberto del Frate, where the painter gives life to his artistic visions. This “home gallery� is located at the third floor of the majestic Panfili Palace, built at the end of the XIX Century from the Panfili family, characterized by his amusing big spaces with a historic atmosphere. Going beyond the normal reach of a gallery, it offers painting courses, psychoanalytic talks, music events, video screenings and enogastronomic experiences.
