If you are in Milan don’t miss the double exhibition at A + I Temporary Gallery, presenting the works of Keisuke Otobe and Davide Giglio. The A + I Temporary Gallery will open during the days of the Milan Design Week, photography meets sculpture in the small venue of Piazzale Arduino.
I had a chat with Keisuke Otobe, born in Tokyo in 1977. Keisuke moved to Italy at the age of 19. He studied photography in Florence at the Fondazione Studio Marangoni while practicing his italian. In 2001 he moved to Milan, where he began working as an assistant for the best of photographers of the moment.
Currently dealing with personal projects and commissioned works he told us about the exhibition: “When I was child, my mom always encouraged me to become a doctor or a lawyer. It would have been a good investment for my future. Sometimes she was used to show me medical books and I even built an eye prototype. However, this is a very old story.
Digging up the past to find memories it’s like finding potatoes in the ground, they come up one after the other. No, I don’t have the slightest intention to be a doctor. I just think everybody has these kind of thoughts and recollections. We always try to dig deep into our past, going beyond time and space”.
