The iconography of Italy, presented in a neo-pop way, features in “Souvenir d’ Italie”, exhibition which was held at the art gallery Orsorama, owned by the brilliant Matteo Bonelli, placed in Brera, renowned area of Milan city centre and joined art and fashion to celebrate Italian culture. Irony, embodied in the fun photo collages by talented artist Svetlana Schmidt and in the artworks by Fluon – artistic collective and band headed by the eclectic creative, singer, DJ and multi-instrumentist musician Andy, which reinterpreted in a fluorescent way, a leitmotiv its work, objects and personas depicting the Italy as the Ferrari car and Dante -, meets the timeless elegance and uniqueness of the jewelry by Anna Porcu, smashing interpretations of the cameos (some of them are antique cameos, unique pieces, other ones are instead hand-made by Tuscany artisans and combined with silver or gold and leather), evidencing the excellence of made in Italy. It was a pleasant interlude, enriched by colors and nice encounters between friends.

L’ iconografia dell’ Italia, presentata in chiave neo-pop, è la protagonista di neo-pop way, “Souvenir d’ Italie”, mostra che si é tenuta a Milano presso la galleria d’ arte Orsorama, di proprietà del brillante Matteo Bonelli, ubicata a Brera, rinomata area del centro di Milano e ha unito arte e moda per celebrare la cultura italiana. L’ ironia, racchiusa nei divertenti collage di foto di Svetlana Schmidt e nelle opere di Fluon – collettivo artistico e band guidata dall’ eclettico creativo, cantante, DJ e musicista polistrumentista Andy che ha reinterpretato in una fluorescente foggia, un leitmotiv della sua opera, oggetti e personaggi che rappresentano l’ Italia quali la Ferrari e Dante – incontra l’ eleganza senza tempo e l’ unicità dei gioielli di Anna Porcu, formidabili interpretazioni dei cammei (alcuni dei quali sono cammei d’ antiquariato, pezzi unici, mentre altri sono invece realizzati a mano da artigiani toscani e sono abbinati con l’ argento o l’ oro e la pelle) che testimoniano l’ eccellenza del made in Italy. Un piacevole intermezzo, arricchito da colori e simpatici incontri tra amici.

I recently saw again the fashion designer Isabella Tonchi, companion of interludes under the sign of art – that frequently focus on the openings of Galleria Carla Sozzani, as it happened months ago, for the opening of exhibition on fashion photographer Arthur Elgort – with whom I attended at the opening of “Deep, deeper”., solo exhibition featuring the artist David Murphy, which is held at the Milan Galleria Monica De Cardenas and runs through 31st July 2015. The British sculptor gave rise to drawings being in the space( one of them reminded me another reference to the idea of “deepness”, the music video “Deep six” by Marilyn Manson), arising from a successful search of matter, also impressed on canvas and talking about a dialogue and interaction with the natural world. I was also pleased to enjoy the works by Linda Fregni Nagler – Switzerland artist who is resident at the gallery – and the intensity and light melancholy of photography she made, telling about the theme of suicide.

Ho recentemente rivisto la fashion designer Isabella Tonchi, compagna di interludi all’ insegna dell’ arte – che sovente si rivolgono alle inaugurazioni della Galleria Carla Sozzani, come è accaduto mesi fa per la opening della mostra sul fotografo di moda Arthur Elgort – con la quale ho partecipato alla opening di “Deep, deeper”, personale di solo David Murphy(che si tiene presso la Galleria di Milano Monica De Cardenas e prosegue fino al 31 luglio 2015), Lo scultore inglese ha dato vita a varie opere, sculture che sono disegni nello spazio (una delle quali mi ha ricordato un altro riferimento all’ idea di “profondità”, il video del brano “Deep six” di Marilyn Manson), nascono da una felice ricerca materica, impressa anche su tela e parlano di un dialogo e interazione con il mondo della natura. Mi ha rallegrato poter apprezzare anche le opere di Linda Fregni Nagler, artista svizzera rappresentata dalla galleria, , l’ intensità e lieve malinconia delle sue fotografie, che affrontano il tema del suicidio.
