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 visited along with my friend and companion of Epicurean interludes – thinking the delights, energies and suggestions have to be shared – Andy Fluon (eclectic individual who is the founder of art collective and music band Fluon, visual artist, singer and DJ) the concept store and art gallery Orsorama, placed in Milan, in Via dell’ Orso 14, in the area of Brera. Here I saw Matteo Bonelli, its bright and visionary creator, who gave rise to a place, a vibrant cathedral showcasing and selling artworks, clothing, accessories – ties, jewelry and scarves – and furniture connected to a specific theme, based on religion and its symbolism – as it appears in “Cult fiction“, the new exhibition -, reinterpreted under the sign of new-pop. But Orsorama it’s much more than this, as it also successfully makes concrete a new way of making fashion, closely connected to a concept arising from artworks. In fact the patterns featuring in the artworks that are exhibited are impressed in the t-shirts, scarves and pillows, limited editions that join the best Italian craftsmanship, high-end materials, a catchy design and an excellent manufacture, giving rise to luxury products. The most bright evidence of all that is the collection of scarves, a luxury product which is extremely contemporary, by Svetlana Schmidt, a genuine genius of textile printing, as it arises from her work talking about surreal suggestions, where pop visions combine to the holy imagery. Orsorama is a place to visit, to come back and enjoy art and fashion dialoguing between themselves.

ARTE & MODA A MILANO: LA MIA VISITA AL CONCEPT STORE & GALLERIA D’ ARTE ORSORAMA

Ho recentemente visitato insieme al mio amico e compagno di intermezzi epicurei – pensando che piaceri, energie e suggestioni siano da condividere – Andy Fluon (eclettica individualità che é il fondatore del collettivo artistico e band Fluon, artista, cantante e DJ) il concept store e galleria d’ arte Orsorama, sita a Milano, in Via dell’ Orso 14, nei dintorni di Brera. Ivi ho incontrato Matteo Bonelli, il suo brillante e visionario creatore che ha dato vita a un luogo, una vibrante cattedrale che espone e vende opere d’ arte, abbigliamento, accessori – cravatte, gioielli e foulard – e componenti di arredo legati a un tema specifico che si basa sulla religione e la sua simbologia – come appare in “Cult fiction”, la nuova mostra, reinterpretata all’ insegna dell’ arte neo-pop. Ma Orsorama è molto più di questo, poiché concretizza felicemente anche un nuovo modo di fare moda, strettamente connesso all’ arte. Infatti i motivi protagonisti delle opere d’ arte esposte sono impressi in t-shirt, foulard e cuscini, edizioni limitate che uniscono la migliore artigianalità, materiali di alta qualità, un design accattivante e una manifattura di eccellenza, dando vita a prodotti di lusso. La più lampante dimostrazione di tutto ciò è la collezione di foulards, un prodotto di lusso estremamente contemporaneo, di Svetlana Schmidt, un autentico genio della stampa su tessuto, come risulta dalla sua opera che parla di suggestioni surreali in cui visioni pop si fondono con l’ immaginario sacro. Orsorama, un luogo da visitare, in cui tornare e apprezzare arte e moda che dialogano tra di loro.

Orsorama

Orsorama, concept store joining, art, fashion and design, placed in Milan in Via dell’ Orso 14, is a genuine cathedral of visions and creativity. Its name combining the words “orso” (bear) and “diorama” reveals its purposes: “the diorama by bears over human beings” – as its bright, eclectic and visionary creator Matteo Bonelli tells about – or rather “a little crystal box featuring a representation of human in an identitary form”. It seems like a fairy tale, a surreal story, instead that is the reality, a light and at the same time extremely rigorous reality in regard of the playful element. “It’s like a masquerade” – Matteo says – “where objects, artists are the guests along with people featuring as guests and dress up, as they don’t do that professionally”. Fun, lightness successfully connects to a contemporary idea, diffused and made concrete by the web, the wiki or the constructive collaboration (other value inspiring Matteo who also created a blog Witizen.org, , focused on the contemporary times) and a religious rigor which joins deepness, occasionality and amateurism with the means of big company. This is and wants being Orsorama which is much beyond a concept store, it’s a real laboratory of culture where it shines a theatrical thematic depiction giving rise to an exclusive craftsmanship made of objects and limited editions as it evidences “Grazie dei Fiori”, the exhibition which showcased the works by Felipe Cardeña, Svetlana Schmidt and Silvio Giordano: surreal, colored and biting visions of nature along with a collection of scarves and t-shirts made by the artists that embody the patterns of works they made. A place to visit, enjoy and where to come back, a must for all the ones who are devoted to art, craftsmanship, design and fashion in its more ironic and catchy shapes.

OLTRE UN CONCEPT STORE: ORSORAMA, LA LUDICA CATTEDRALE MILANESE DI VISIONI & CREATIVITÀ

Orsorama, concept store che unisce arte, moda e design, sito a Milano in Via dell’ Orso 14, è una autentica cattedrale di visioni e creatività. Il suo nome che unisce le parole “orso” e “diorama” svela la sua finalità: “il diorama degli orsi sugli umani” – come racconta il suo brillante, eclettico e visionario creatore Matteo Bonelli – ovvero “una piccola scatola di cristallo con una rappresentazione dell’ umano in forma identitaria”. Sembra una favola, una storia surreale, invece questa è la realtà, una realtà leggera e al tempo stesso estremamente rigorosa nella valorizzazione dell’ elemento ludico. “È come una festa in maschera” – aggiunge  Matteo – “in cui gli invitati sono gli oggetti, gli artisti, insieme a persone che partecipano da invitati e si travestono, poiché non lo fanno professionalmente”. Divertimento, leggerezza si congiungono felicemente a un’ idea contemporanea, diffusa dal web, il wiki ovvero la collaborazione costruttiva (altro valore che anima Matteo, il quale ha creato anche un blog Witizen.org, incentrato sulla contemporaneità) e a un religioso rigore che unisce profondità, occasionalità e dilettantismo con i mezzi della grande impresa. Questo è e vuole essere Orsorama che è ben oltre un concept store, è un vero laboratorio di cultura in cui splende una teatrale rappresentazione tematica che dà vita a una artigianalità esclusiva fatta di oggetti e limited editions come dimostra “Grazie dei Fiori”, la mostra che ha esposto le opere di Felipe Cardeña, Svetlana Schmidt e Silvio Giordano: surreali, colorate e graffianti visioni della natura unitamente a una collezione di foulard e t-shirt realizzate dagli artisti che racchiudono i motivi delle loro opere. Un luogo da visitare, apprezzare e in cui ritornare, meta obbligata per tutti coloro che sono devoti all’ arte, artigianalità, al design e alla moda nelle sue forme più ironiche e accattivanti.
