Maniera Scura is a spontaneous convergence among Mik Bòiter, Alberto Brunello and Michele Servadio.
Its core is fueled with a truthful drive, that of depriving the creative production from ego’s greed for material and aesthetic safety. “Que Viene El Coco” is a collective experience including Canemorto, Elie Carp and Milan Jespers, where the approach flows through instinct and natural faults with energy and curiosity, being an error always indication of the natural occurring of events and therefore, right.
The photographic enlarger such as the etching press vanish in the digital era, and revive freed from their function of serial reproduction and from the need of a pedantic interpretation of the real.
The aimless primordial use of these instruments, by now outdated and generally reserved to much more fast, cheap and common means, opens up towards a free technical experimentation, emancipated from necessity and practical purposes.
“Que Viene El Coco” is the research of the unknown, through the experimentation, where different backgrounds and styles meet and collide, deconstructs the phases of old fashion photography printing. Inside the darkroom, “El Coco” is manipulated, handled and played with transversal techniques in a daring creative act, halfway through old style artisanship and a pupils’ game.
