CollectibleDRY 18/19 – Luck[y]

CollectibleDRY 18/19 – Luck[y] | Homo faber fortunae suae: a motto that has animated western culture since ancient times. Fortune understood as chance, as Fate, but also, and above all, as a paradigm to be dominated and influenced by one’s own choices. The new issue of CollectibleDRY therefore sets out to investigate this theme in its many facets. From the Lady Lucky who alternately influences the lives of human beings, to the intangible presences that push us towards one choice rather than another. At the centre, however, there is always man, with his works, his poetry, his art. 

The human intellect has continually questioned itself on the theme of fate, which is often imponderable and mysterious. CollectibleDRY’s journey therefore winds its way through the past and present, with an eye to the future. For this reason, we start from the work of the great Poet, Dante Alighieri, investigating the inseparable union that binds him to the visionary genius of Alexander McQueen. The Florentine poet’s verses are living matter that pulsates in a new guise in Mimmo Paladino‘s contemporary reinterpretation. Epiphanies, visions, mysterious and poetic apparitions fuel the entire experience of the famous Italian artist, who tells his story in the pages of the new issue of Collectible DRY, in an almost initiatory journey to illuminate new aspects of our consciences. 

The alternating fortunes that govern human affairs bring together two minds that are geographically far apart. The stories and words of Tomo Koizumi and Roberto Capucci interpenetrate in an inseparable symbiosis, which feeds on the exchange between art and fashion to find in the experiences of the past the tools to look to the future. 

Luck becomes the leitmotif for rediscovering the customs and traditions of the Roma and Sinti cultures, with an interview with activist of the Kethane cultural association, Morena Pedrali, in the awareness that we need to rethink our origins to face new times.  

This awareness also guides the work of photographer Gianmarco Porru, who uses Sardinian costume and folklore to rediscover the identity of his territory.  In this case, the search for luck, understood as good fortune, is connected with many ritual practices investigated by the photographer’s lens.

In this issue, the performance artist Renate Bertlmann, pioneer of the feminist avant-garde, retraces her visual research, which, thanks to a practice centred on the body, love, society and eroticism, has indelibly marked the “queer” imaginary.  It quickly became iconic, not without scandal and opposition, due to its explicit sexual references.

Natalia Ginzburg wrote that “Dreams never come true, and the instant they are shattered, we realise how the greatest joys of life lie beyond the realm of reality”.  This could be an interpretative key to investigate the new media, the hyper-connected world in which we live, and to search for other meanings that open up new perceptions of reality. The new perspectives on the contemporary are those offered by Ryan Prevedel, in a generational exchange that aims to merge different understandings. Ellen Sheidlin, on the other hand, introduces us into her hallucinated and dystopian dimension, where the monsters of hyper-technological spaces and those of the unconscious meet, in a relationship in which art leaves the canvas to flow into life.  

The fragile and ambiguous relationship between nature and new technologies, on the other hand, reverberates in the work of Tobias Gremmler, the visual artist who proposes a utopian coexistence between the digital world and the real world. His collaboration with the singer Björk has given shape to hybrid beings in which human transfiguration follows the poetry of digital graphics.
