The "Spot Art Gallery" of the Consulate General of Italy in Guangzhou will host the exhibition "Pure, Purity, Simplicity," by Saverio Merone from April 5 to May 3, 2013.
Saverio Merone was born in Naples, Italy, in April 1971. After studying Literature and Philosophy at Florence University and completing a two-year master in Photography and Visual Art in Milan at the Academy, he began his career as a professional Photographer and Photojournalist in 1997. In 2000 He became a freelance and moved to London (UK), where He lived for a year. Returning to Italy in 2001, he started its professional activity, opened his first Photo Studio in Milan and became a photojournalist. He was represented by international Press Agencies such as Corbis U.S.A and Lapresse. In 2012 he decided to move to China where he currently lives and where he opened his own Studio of Photographic Art.
In this exhibition he explores the meaning of happiness in contemporary China where traditional lifestyle is gradually shattered by the fast social and economic development and the process of modernisation. The exhibition is inspired by a visit to the hometown of Zhou Xin, a Chinese girl coming from a remote village in Sichuan province, 3 hours from Chongqing where the photographer stayed for 8 days among the local people. The contrast between the urban life of Zhou Xin lives in the city and the simplicity of the life in the village made the photographer wonder the true meaning of happiness and the way to achieve it.
