The atmospheres by Raja Schwahn-Reichmann

The atmospheres by Raja Schwahn-Reichmann

Baroque suggestions, a magic world featuring angels, fauns, satyrs and nymphs, devils and courtesans. All that is embodied in the work and life of Raja Schwahn-Reichmann, bright restorer, painter, sculptor and collector of antique costumes. The Viennese artist, awarded in 2009 for her work and her picturesque life with the Italian art Mantegna Prize, has successfully made concrete the Nietzschean imperative, making her life an artwork. Visiting the Milanese house of my dear friend Stephan Hamel, I recently ran into the marvelous decorative works she made and I had the chance to see and appreciate the transformations of di Raja, caught on photo. Elegance, irony, provocation, art and a detailed reconstruction and reinterpretation of atmospheres and ages is what shines in the work by this artist of whose name since many years is strictly connected to the Life Ball – charity event which is held in Vienna at the Rathausplatz, joins art, fashion and supports the fight against HIV – where Raja curates its set design. The works she made for 2014 Life Ball edition of whose theme is “the garden of delights giardino” will be seen tonight also via streaming by the Austrian TV channel OrftvThek which will broadcast the event featuring Conchita Wurst, Ricky Martin and for the first time a menswear fashion show, curated by L’ Uomo Vogue which will include celebrated names of fashion scene as Givenchy, Viktor & Rolf, Lanvin, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Etro and Dsquared2. A not to be missed happening to enjoy art and fashion and the genius of Raja Schwahn-Reichmann.

L’ ARTE, ELEGANZA & IRONIA DI RAJA SCHWAHN-REICHMANN

The atmospheres by Raja Schwahn-Reichmann

The atmospheres by Raja Schwahn-Reichmann

Suggestioni barocche, un magico mondo di angeli, fauni, satiri e ninfe, diavoli e cortigiane. Tutto ciò è racchiuso nell’ opera e nella vita di Raja Schwahn-Reichmann, brillante restauratrice, pittrice, illustratrice, scultrice e collezionista di costumi d’ epoca. L’ artista viennese, insignita nel 2009 per il suo lavoro e la sua pittoresca vita del Premio di arte italiana Mantegna, ha felicemente concretizzato l’ imperativo nietzschiano, rendendo la sua vita un’ opera d’ arte. Visitando la dimora milanese del mio caro amico Stephan Hamel, recentemente mi sono imbattuta nelle sue meravigliose opere decorative e ho anche avuto modo di osservare e ammirare le trasformazioni di Raja, immortalate su fotografia. Eleganza, ironia, provocazione, arte e una minuziosa ricostruzione e reinterpretazione di atmosfere ed epoche è ciò che splende nell’ opera di questa artista il cui nome è da anni strettamente legato al Life Ball – evento di beneficienza che si tiene a Vienna presso la Rathausplatz, unisce arte, moda e supporta la lotta contro l’ HIV – di cui Raja cura le scenografie. I suoi lavori per l’ edizione 2014 del Life Ball, il cui tema è “il giardino dei piaceri”, saranno visibili stasera anche via streaming per il tramite della rete televisiva austriaca OrftvThek  che trasmetterà l’ evento di cui saranno protagonisti Conchita Wurst, Ricky Martin e per la prima volta una sfilata di abbigliamento uomo, curata da L’ Uomo Vogue che includerà celebri nomi della moda quali Givenchy, Viktor & Rolf, Lanvin, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Etro e Dsquared2. Un evento imperdibile per apprezzare arte e moda e il genio di Raja Schwahn-Reichmann.

I recently visited Brescia, enchanting city – where to go and come back – and I was pleased to see along with Alessandro Boccingher and Dario Bonetta, the co-founders of the smashing AplusB Gallery, a small preview of “L’ avventura- die mit der liebe spielen”, group show curated by Lena Ipsen, which pays homage to the New realism film movement, is held at the Palazzo Guaineri Delle Cossere and runs through 5th July 2014. This marvelous building evokes Proustian suggestions and its disused interiors embodies mystery, sensuality and a caressing, poetic decadence which makes it magic. Here I appreciated the artworks of some young German artists, works of matter and dreamy-like etchings, featuring in this exhibition about that I tell more soon.

Ho recentemente visitato Brescia – incantevole città in cui andare e tornare – e sono stata felice di vedere insieme ad Alessandro Boccingher e Dario Bonetta, i co-fondatori della formidabile AplusB Gallery, una piccola anteprima de “L’ avventura- die mit der liebe spielen”, collettiva curata da Lena Ipsen che rende omaggio al movimento cinematografico del neorealismo, si tiene presso il Palazzo Guaineri Delle Cossere e prosegue fino al 5 luglio 2014. Questo meraviglioso edificio evoca suggestioni proustiane e i sui interni in disuso i cui interni racchiudono in sé mistero, sensualità e una carezzevole, poetica decadenza che lo rende magico. Ivi ho apprezzato i lavori di alcuni artisti tedeschi, opere materiche e incisioni oniriche che sono protagoniste di questa mostra sulla quale dirò presto di più.

I recently attended along with my friend Stephan Hamel at the opening of “Risen from the dead”, the solo exhibition of Mustafa Sabbagh which featured rarefied atmospheres and in ontology of human being and a poetry of body under the sign of black. Here I was pleased to see again after a long time the art-dealer Guido Cabib who created along with the visual artist Matteo Sanna in Milan the Format Gallery, where today it will held the opening of an exhibition featuring Mustafa Sabbagh. Another not to be missed happening to enjoy the art by a vibrant artist.

Ho recentemente partecipato insieme al mio amico Stephan Hamel alla opening di “Risen from the dead”, la personale di Mustafa Sabbagh di cui erano protagoniste rarefatte atmosfere, una ontologia dell’ essere e una poetica del corpo all’ insegna del nero. the rarefied atmospheres and the poetry of body under the sign of black. Ivi mi ha rallegrato rivedere dopo tanto tempo il gallerista Guido Cabib che ha creato unitamente all’ artista Matteo Sanna a Milano la Format Gallery, in cui oggi si terrà la opening di una mostra con Mustafa Sabbagh. Un’ altro evento imperdibile per ammirare l’ opera di un vibrante artista.

AVF, a selection of wines curated by Anna Venturini Fendi

Alamaro(Kerner wine) featuring in AVF, a selection of wines curated by Anna Venturini Fendi, photo by Raffaella Tatti

Epicureanism as lifestyle talking about refinement, craftsmanship, taste and made in Italy, an alchemy that features in the life and creativity of Anna Venturini Fendi, her continuous work of research which is successfully made concrete in one of the projects she recently launched: AVF, a selection of wines. This project has developed by her along with Pino Tedesco in collaboration with the wine taster Michelangelo di Toma and includes a series of renowned autochthon vine varieties from Italy. Red wines, white wines, a rosé wine, prosecco, sparkling wine and spirits complete her smashing selection. Twill (Amarone della Valpolicella Superior), Bolero (Barolo), Negligè (Brunello di Montalcino), Velvet (Classic Chianti), Voile(Gavi), Spina di Pesce (the best Soave wine I ever drank), Lamé (Prosecco), Decolleté (Sparkling wine) are some of the catchy wines’ names that talk about textures, elegance and reveals an enchanting experience. I recently has pleased of tasting them in Rome at the wine-bar of Villa Laetitia – another project connected to the hotellerie by Anna I will tell you about soon – and discover they feature a high quality and a reasonable price. Being devoted to the flavors from South Tyrol and to a wine, the Kerner, it has been a double delight to enjoy Alamaro, the Kerner wine being part of AVF selection and discover its highly aromatic and at the same time natural flavor which is not intensified by the use of barrique as it often is impressed on those kind of wines. Another amazing interlude – for one like me who usually does not like the rosé wine – has been Fard, rosé wine made of wine varieties from Troy, area of Asia. My wine tasting ended with Acquae vitae, the spirito d’ uva, a spirit embodying a fruity taste, being lightly alcoholic and ideal to be used as a base to create cocktails or to be served at the end of meal with pastries. A selection to discover and enjoy which will be also presented along with the other creations by Anna Venturini Fendi during Bucolica 2014, an exhibition event which will be held from 23rd to 25th May in Vaprio D’ Adda, in the area of Bergamo, a not be missed happening to discover and appreciate Epicurean suggestions and the culture of taste by Anna Venturini Fendi.

L’ epicureismo come stile di vita che parla di raffinatezza, artigianalità, gusto e made in Italy, un’ alchimia protagonista della vita e della creatività di Anna Venturini Fendi, del suo continuo lavoro di ricerca che è felicemente concretizzato in uno dei progetti da lei recentemente lanciati: AVF, una selezione di vini. Questo progetto è stato consolidato da lei insieme a Pino Tedesco in collaborazione del wine taster Michelangelo di Toma ed include una serie di rinomati vitigni autoctoni italiani. Vini rossi, vini bianchi, un vino rosé, il prosecco, il vino spumante e distillati completano la sua formidabile selezione. Twill (Amarone della Valpolicella Superiore), Bolero (Barolo), Negligè (Brunello di Montalcino), Velvet (Chianti Classico), Voile(Gavi), Spina di Pesce (il migliore Soave che abbia mai bevuto), Lamé (Prosecco), Decolleté (vino spumante) sono alcuni degli accattivanti nomi dei vini che evocano textures, eleganza e rivelano un’ esperienza avvolgente. Ho avuto di recente il piacere di degustarli a Roma presso il wine-bar di Villa Laetitia – un’ altro progetto di Anna legato all’ hotellerie di Anna di cui presto parlerò – e scoprire che hanno un’ alta qualità e un prezzo ragionevole. Essendo devota ai sapori del Sud-Tirolo e ad un vino, il Kerner, è stato un doppio piacere gustare Alamaro, il vino Kerner che fa parte della selezione e scoprire il suo sapore altamente aromatico e al tempo stesso naturale, non essendo esasperato dall’ uso della barrique come sovente è impresso in questi tipi di vini. Un’ altro sorprendente interludio – per una come me che solitamente non apprezza il vino rosé – è stato Fard, vino rosé fatto di vitigni provenienti da Troia, area dell’ Asia Minore. La mie degustazione di vino si è conclusa con Acquae vitae, lo spirito d’ uva, un distillate che racchiude un sapore fruttato, è moderatamente alcolico ed è ideale come base per cocktail o a fine pasto, per accompagnare i dolci. Una selezione da scoprire e apprezzare che sarà anche presentata unitamente alle altre creazioni di Anna Venturini Fendi durante Bucolica 2014, un evento espositivo che si terrà dal 23 al 25 maggio 2014 a Vaprio D’ Adda, nei dintorni di Bergamo, un evento imperdibile per scoprire e apprezzare suggestioni epicuree e la cultura del gusto di Anna Venturini Fendi.
