Vins BLAKE (Guest)

Vins BLAKE (Guest)

Vins Blake is an Italian Photographer and Film Director with a rather unconventional background. A scientist by training – he holds an MSc in Biotechnology – Vins felt early on in his career a strong fascination with art, which eventually led him to develop a vision of the world filtered through the prism of his scientific studies. While “art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life” – as Pablo Picasso once said – through the masterful application of chemistry and electronic engineering Vins Blake challenges our perception of reality by subtly playing with everyday objects.

  • Vins Blake directs various short films with photographer Francesco Pignatelli among which “Fragile” and “Reversed Cities”, presented at PS1 MoMA New York “Big Bang” and “+ Fragile”, were also presented at Francesco Pignatelli’s solo exhibitions in Milan, Cologne and Paris
