Known for his series of eerie portraits or photo-sculptures, a term used by himself to describe his portraits, Maurizio’s work will be presented this month at the Baltic (25 June - 11 October 2011) and will mark his first solo show in a major UK institution. Yatzer caught up with Maurizio Anzeri and discovered the man behind the embroidered vintage photographs who is enjoying an extraordinary moment in his career. Maurizio’s Mediterranean temperament and warm nature was evident in the way he talked about his work, an element that deeply engaged me to our conversation. Shifting from his previous project to his current practice, Maurizio says that he is interested in everything a photograph represents. His intimate relationship with the people in the photographs is so powerful that Maurizio seamlessly admits: >> I develop relationships with each one of them.

Atmospheres Question Paul Klee - paintings, biography, and quotes of Paul Klee Biography - Arne Quinze ‘Cities like open-air museums – it sounds like an idealistic dream, but I am striving to realize this dream. Confronting a public surrounded by art every day. Art has a positive influence on people and their personal development: it broadens their horizons and renders them more tolerant towards differences in society.’ Arne Quinze was born in 1971 in Belgium and lives and works in Sint- Martens-Latem, Belgium and Shanghai, China. What drives Quinze is the belief in the possible realization of an idealistic society where all individuals communicate and interact, aiming to bring people together and push them into a vigorous dialogue. In every culture Quinze comes across, he unravels physical processes, drawing inspiration for his oeuvre, and is fueled by overwhelming optimism.
