Sarah Moon Le Fil Rouge

4th november 2006 - 3rd december 2006

Long renowned for her fashion shoots, in recent years Sarah Moon has established herself on the artistic scene for her unique research in the fields of photography and filmography.
The exhibition at the Galleria Carla Sozzani includes photos, a book and a short movie all based on the popular fairy tale “Bluebeard”, by Charles Perrault. Le fil rouge sheds a new light on this classic. Sarah Moon has modified the tale, giving a modern interpretation of the young bride who escapes the revenge of her violent and furious husband. While in the traditional tale she is set free by her brothers, in Sarah Moon’s version freedom is granted by Bluebeard himself and eventually the woman runs alone towards a bright horizon. The red thread that binds all the elements leads the visitor into a tale of text and photographs, generating a unique and moving experience.
Sarah Moon illustrates every fairy tale with three different media, offering the visitor three ways of experiencing the tale’s adaptation: a book combining images and text; an exhibition displaying prints and texts in the same sequence of the book; and a short movie.
The technique used for short movies is very peculiar, and it is composed of several elements: photographs, images in motion, text, sounds and music. The photographs have been taken in different periods and occasions: some were expressly made to reproduce a fairy-tale scenery; others were taken during fashion shootings and advertisement campaigns; others are part of the artist’s archive. Another essential element is the written text, that Sarah Moon reinvents, rewrites and adapts freely.
