Curated by DROME MagazineOn the occasion of the 9 festival for fashion & photography this MAK NITE features the world premiere of the Gloomy
Sunday project. The performance combines art and music, a fashion photography show and video screenings, installations,
melancholy and glamour, history and stories: Sylvia Plath, Sarah Kane, Jean Seberg, Frida Kahlo, Violeta Parra, Alfonsina
Storni, Capucine, Ophelia
all these unforgettable women have one dark element in common: they committed suicide. Their
spirits will hover over the exhibition which in fact previews a project by the well-known Italian fashion photographer Angelo
Cricchi who shows exceptional women in sophisticated, perturbing, poetic, imaginary psychological portraits. In the presentation,
the Gloomy Sunday atmosphere will be evoked by a special soundtrack, including the cult song that gives the title
to the whole eventthe gloomiest song ever written.This setting is the work of the Rome-based artist group kERAMIk PAPIER and video-maker Silvia Morani. A DJ set by artist Jan
Machacek will wind up the evening.
