My name is Massimo Bonagiunti and I was born in Parma in 1998. I’m about to get my bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design at the New Academy of Fine Arts in Milan. Always passionate about fashion art and design, the university was the place where I could discover and develop my creative identity. My projects revolve around an instinct of curiosity, trying to analyze what surrounds me, trying to contaminate it with my interests and my passions for past eras and everyday life. All this is summed up in a new and completely personal language.
Visioni di spazi all'interno degli occhi
The intent of the project is to give voice to a process that takes place within my mind. Being able to make concrete visions of people, of spaces and things that appear in my eyes. I often find myself doing "the exercise" of observing, observing people and spaces, things that surround them. Looking I find myself wondering who I am in front of, wondering why the person I am observing dresses in a certain way, why he is there at that moment, or more simply I try to imagine their life, their daily life. I started my research by focusing on what it meant for me to have this experience, how I translated the concept of landscape into my vision. The "fashion landscape" is an image that speaks to me of a world, a world made of spaces and people, of conflicting feelings and the mixture between them. From the shots of Charles H. Traub and Cindy Sherman of the early 70’s to the images that tell the hip-hop culture of the early 90’s, all about everyday life, the banality of the day after day and how unaware, we are able to tell something simply by existing. Everything appears in my eyes and mingles, is a vision that appears in a moment and seems to dissolve the next moment, is the story of my way of understanding what I have around, to observe from afar to translate closely.
