The brilliant sculptor, architect and designer Gaetano Pesce features during FuoriSalone in the exhibition “ALTRA BELLEZZA” ( which stands as “OTHER BEAUTY”) at the Milan Civic Museum Palazzo Morando. The exhibition, recently opened, curated by Vittorio Sgarbi, runs through 31st July 2016 and explores the universe of Pesce through three different sections, telling about the contemporary searches: Jewelry, Models of Shape and Mosaic Intruders. I like using the beautiful words by the curator depicting the creative and his enthusiasm: “and, though he is almost Ariostoesque, having the sprezzatura of who doesn’t want revealing his ambitious thinking, you look at him and think something of Leonardo, without the rhetoric of genius, lives inside him…”.

Talking about the work and search by Pesce, Sgarbi asserts: “every age had its technique, graffiti in the Prehistory, painting and wax-painting during the Romans age and fresco during the Renaissance. What is the technique of our times? The one which uses contemporary materials! E.g. the resins: they are elastic, can be rolled like paper and give mat or transparent supports giving relevance to thinking…a synthetic material, originally liquid which fixes giving rise to uncontrollable combinations. I love this quality, this way of being Gaetano Pesce”. A not to be missed  happening to deeply know the creative path of a relevant persona of international contemporary culture.

Il brillante scultore, architetto e designer Gaetano Pesce é protagonista in occasione del FuoriSalone della mostra “Altra Bellezzapresso il Museo Civico Palazzo Morando di Milano. La mostra, recentemente inaugurata, curata da Vittorio Sgarbi, prosegue fino al 31 luglio 2016 ed esplora l’ universo di Pesce attraverso tre diverse sezioni che racconatano le ricerche contemporanee: Preziosi, Modelli di Forma e Intrusi Musivi. Mi avvalgo delle parole del curatore che meravigliosamente ritraggono il creativo e il suo entusiasmo:“e benché egli sia quasi ariostesco, con la sprezzatura di chi non vuol far trapelare il suo ambizioso pensiero, tu lo guardi e pensi che qualcosa di Leonardo, senza la retorica del genio, viva in lui…”.

Parlando del lavoro e della ricerca di Pesce, Sgarbi afferma: “ogni epoca ha avuto la sua tecnica: graffiti per la Preistoria, la pittura ad encausto per i Romani e l’affresco per il Rinascimento. Qual è la tecnica del nostro tempo? Quella che utilizza materiali contemporanei! Per esempio le resine: elastiche, possono essere arrotolate come carta e offrono supporti opachi o trasparenti dando rilievo al pensiero… un materiale sintentico, in origine liquido che si fissa in combinazioni incontrollabili. Amo questa qualità, questo modo di essere Gaetano Pesce”. Un evento imperdibile per conoscere in modo approfondito l’ iter creativo di un personaggio emblematico della cultura internazionale contemporanea.

Marco Grisolia and me at Palazzo Morando

An initiative following the path of promoting and showcasing the young Italian and foreigner talents was held in Milan at Palazzo Morando – as it has been successfully made a couple of months ago, exhibiting here the works of Who IS On Next talents along with the Vogue Italia’s one -, curated by Sara Maino, organized by Vogue Italia along with The Corner.com, virtual boutique powered by Yoox.com, I enjoyed Here I met Marco Grisolia, designer of CovHerlab, Martina Grasselli of jewelry brand Coliac and other ones who were interesting, but less vibrant. Maybe I had more expectations, concerning talents, as I usually see lots of bright, genuine creatives who should deserve of showcasing their work. Unfortunately sometimes the institutional circuit lacks, being more focused on marketing, advertising issues, catchy make-up operations rather than going on the core of purpose, understanding the promotion and support of young ones is a benefit for the all the ones and for Made In Italy especially. Asserting that, I consider the laudable British model, a precious source – which concretely offers the chance to young creatives of promoting, creating and showcasing their collection during the London Fashion Week. Thus it started Erdem or Marios Schwab, who is also former designer of New York brand Halston -, supported by British Fashion Council that financed the production of collection, successful evidence and bright suggestion to reconsider, use and more properly develop in terms of creativity and culture the many sources there are in Italy.

I TALENTI DI VOGUE AL PALAZZO MORANDO DI MILANO

A model wearing the Coliac jewels by Martina Grasselli

Un’iniziativa che prosegue il cammino per promuovere ed esporre i giovani designer italiani e stranieri i è tenuta a Milano presso Palazzo Morando – come è stato fatto con successo mesi fa, esponendo le opere dei talenti di Who IS On Next unitamente con quelli di Vogue Italia -, curata da Sara Maino, organizzata da Vogue Italia unitamente a The Corner.com, boutique virtuale ideata da Yoox.com, che ho apprezzato. Ivi ho incontrato alcuni brillanti creativi quali Marco Grisolia, designer di CovHerlab, Martina Grasselli del brand  unitamente ad altri i cui lavori erano però interessanti, ma poco vibranti. Forse avevo più aspettative riguardo ai talenti, poiché solitamente vedo una moltitudine di autentici creativi che meriterebbero di esporre le loro opere. Sfortunatamente il circuito istituzionale talvolta deficie, essendo più rivolto a questioni di marketing, pubblicità, accattivanti operazioni di make-up piuttosto che affrontare il cuore della questione, comprendendo che la promozione ed il supporto dei giovani è un beneficio per tutti e specialmente per il Made in Italy. Affermando ciò, prendo in considerazione il lodevole modello inglese, una preziosa fonte – che concretamente offre la possibilità a giovani creativi di promuovere, realizzare ed esporre la loro collezione in occasione della London Fashion Week. Così ha iniziato Erdem e Marios Schwab che è anche l’ attuale designer del brand newyorkese Halston -, supportato dal British Fashion Council che ha finanziato la produzione della collezione, felice dimostrazione e brillante suggerimento per cominciare a riconsiderare, usando e consolidando in modo più appropriato in termini di creatività e cultura le plurime risorse che ci sono in Italia.

Ivano Atzori

The latest edition of Alta Roma has been a successful chance to meet Ivano Atzori, graffiti artist known as Dumbo, eclectic artist and smashing Milanese designer who showcased a magnificent necklace during the exhibition “Limited/Unlimited”. A random meeting happened at breakfast time in the hall of Hotel Antico Palazzo Rospigliosi – peopled during those days by colleagues, designers and friends – where we stayed. I still smile thinking about this hilarious circumstance. Ivano appears being barefoot and having the long hair wet – seeming like when Devendra Banhart  meets  a sanyasi (devoted to asceticism) of Osho Rajneesh (controversial guru who diffused and reinterpreted the tantric doctrine) – in the hall where a woman has serving the breakfast. He smiles, brings something to eat, standing up, then he says hello and goes away. The nice woman immediately after he has gone asserts “he is also one of you, you were all really strange” and she cracks up. Then I remind the scene of movie by Todd Browning “Freaks” and I also start laughing. A beautiful memory staying along with a precious black book documenting “One size fits all”(Grafica dell’artiere), wonderful project joining art and fashion, made by the genius creative, exhibited time ago in Milan at Palazzo Morando. Here it features a fetish, he ski-mask – worn by the artist as Dumbo to preserve the anonymity -, made exclusively for Ivano Atzori by celebrated designers – as Haider Ackermann, Neil Barrett, Ennio Capasa, Missoni, N° 21, Raf Simons, Vivienne Westwood and Bernhard Willhelm – along with photographs depicting him, the wife Sophia and son Leroy, making concrete the infinite possibilities of fashion, celebrating creativity and exploring the theme of double, human fragility, overwhelming lust of uniqueness and also the will of dreaming, evoking a tribal aesthetics. Bright transposition of what is unusual and surreal into everyday life, creating a superb total work of art, vibrant source of energy to shake the conscience, contributing to activate an autonomous thought – bringer of culture and freedom -, need arising from the contemporary narcolepsy.

IL CASO, LA MODA E L’ARTE, ILMIO INCONTRO CON IVANO ATZORI

 
 

“One size fits all” by Ivano Atzori

 

L’ultima edizione di Alta Roma è stata una felice occasione per incontrare Ivano Atzori, graffitista conosciuto come Dumbo, eclettico artista e formidabile designer milanese che ha esposto una magnifica collana da lui realizzata in occasione della mostra “Limited/Unlimited”. Un incontro casuale avvenuto a colazione nella sala dell’ Hotel Antico Palazzo Rospigliosi – popolato in quei giorni da colleghi, designer e amici – in cui alloggiavamo. Sorrido ancora ripensando a questa ilare circostanza. Ivano appare scalzo e con i lunghi capelli bagnati – sembrando un mix tra Devendra Banhart   e un sanyasi (devoto all’ascetismo) di Osho Rajneesh (controverso guru che ha diffuso e reinterpretato la dottrina del tantra) – nella hall in cui una signora serviva la prima colazione. Costui sorride, prende qualcosa da mangiare, rimanendo in piedi, saluta e se ne va. Immediatamente dopo la simpatica signora afferma: “anche lui è uno di voi, certo che voi siete tutti strani” e scoppia a ridere. Penso subito alla scena del film di Todd Browning “Freaks” e rido anch’io. Un bel ricordo che resta unitamente a un prezioso libro nero che documenta “One size fits all”(Grafica dell’artiere), il meraviglioso progetto artistico che unisce arte e moda, realizzato dal geniale creativo ed esposto tempo fa a Milano presso Palazzo Morando. Ivi è protagonista un feticcio, il passa-montagna – indossato dall’artista nelle vesti di Dumbo per mantenere l’anonimato -, realizzato esclusivamente per Ivano Atzori da celebri designer – quali Haider Ackermann, Neil Barrett, Ennio Capasa, Missoni, N° 21, Raf Simons, Vivienne Westwood e Bernhard Willhelm – unitamente alle foto che ritraggono lui, la moglie Sophia ed il figlio Leroy che concretizzano delle infinite possibilità della moda, celebrano la creatività ed esplorano il tema del doppio, la fragilità umana, l’irrefrenabile desiderio di unicità ed anche la volontà di sognare, evocando un’ estetica tribale. Brillante trasposizione di ciò che è insolito e surreale nella vita di ogni giorno che da vita a una superba opera d’arte totale, vibrante risorsa di energia per scuotere le coscienze, contribuendo ad azionare un pensiero autonomo e vibrante – portatore di cultura e libertà -, esigenza derivante dalla narcolessia contemporanea.
