The Saladrigas House in Blanes hosts the exhibition ‘Sigurd Lewerentz and László Moholy-Nagy, Photographs’, which is part of The Architect’s Album cycle promoted by the Department of Culture of the COAC’s Girona Demarcation. It constitutes a reflection on the validity of photography to deepen its knowledge and convey meanings.
Regarding the architect Sigurd Lewerentz, there is a selection of 44 snapshots that were taken during his journey from northern Europe to Italy during 1909. These photographs belong to the personal archive of the architect, they are located in the Scandinavian DigitaltMuseum and evoke silence, loneliness… perhaps the features that best define him. Therefore, critics have often called him a lonely Nordic; a quiet, isolated architect, a difficult person, often closed in on himself, stubborn, obsessive.
As for László Moholy-Nagy, the exhibition features 18 photographs and 42 stills. Moholy-Nagy was a versatile artist and one of the most iconic teachers at the Bauhaus School. He experimented in a variety of fields, from painting to film, photography and set design. His work as a photographer includes what he called stills, that is, abstract compositions created by interposing objects, filters, or frames between a spotlight and sensitive material.
