In his photo-based work the Estonian artist Mark Raidpere focuses on the bodyscape in a new and unexpected way. As a mirror of the artist ‘s corporal identity, the photographic medium assumes a quite usual role here, at first sight, the different layers of meaning only appear later…
… The presentation of male nudity in Estonian mannerist photographic art has so far been pronouncedly hedonistic, problem-free and operatic. The exhibition’s title in the Italian language, Io, refers to Mark Raidpere’s connection with the mannerist trend; the sarcasm of the pictures opposes its naivety…
Raidpere depicts the human side of convicts.
