Photographs at the Museo de Ferrocarril de Madrid, a favorite space of the artist. For Sambiasi the moments of stillness in this space bring to mind a quote from Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris: Nostalgia is denial – denial of the painful present… the name for this denial is golden age thinking – the erroneous notion that a different time period is better than the one’s living in – it’s a flaw in the romantic imagination of those people who find it difficult to cope with the present. “Photography can elevate any space with simple moments of charm that distill the wonders of our world, especially suited for minimalist or industrial interior designs. Invite thoughtful interpretation and discussion into your home with this intriguing piece, a true appreciation of the transcendent quality of art.

Description

Mena Sambiasi | Argentina

Mena Sambiasi’s journey as a photographer started from her TV-filled childhood growing up in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Ironically, she avoided photography at her technical high school studying advertising. Her study and work with video and production continued taking her to Malaga and Madrid. It was after watching “Revolutionary Road” (dir. Sam Mendes) that inspired her to move back to Buenos Aires and study photography. Back home, Mena struggled to not feel estranged in her own home country and began to experiment with photographing the contemplative figures at bus stops. After a life-changing workshop, she identified a major theme of her work being “reflections” emoting through capturing the details of the city. Today, Mena Sambiasi continues to discover new places with the childlike curiosity of newness and excitement.
