The single object. UNIQUE AND PLURAL

During FuoriSalone 2021, Wannenes hosted in its prestigious spaces from 4 to 10 September 2021 the exhibition by Hoperaperta “L’oggetto celibe. Per un’arte da camera à réaction poétique” curated by Patrizia Catalano and Maurizio Barberis, a project promoted by 5Vie Art+Design. The theme of the ‘celibate object’ – that is, an object that cannot be reproduced because it is unable to generate anything beyond itself – was launched as a provocation by HoperAperta to a group of artists and architects, asking them to create a work that would be unique in its artistic poetics – so much so that it would become an authorial limited edition piece – but also plural in its interpretation of a theme with an impossible solution. Being ‘celibate’ can have many positive values: it means having a clear idea of one’s identity, who I am, where I am and, above all, in what direction I am heading. It means seeking, through one’s uniqueness, a dialogue with others, not by virtue of similarity but rather through a dynamic integration of differences. This can generate a multiple and diverse narrative. On display in the neoclassical Milanese rooms of Palazzo Recalcati were the works by Maurizio Barberis, Alfonso Femia, Tiziano Guardini con Luigi Ciuffreda, Dario Ghibaudo, Duccio Grassi, Mariano Martin, Steve Piccolo, Rudy Ricciotti, Davide Valloppi, in partnership with Cromonichel, De Castelli, Disegno Mobile, Fornace Brioni, Julia Marmi, Marmi Faedo, Metalltech, Oemmebi, Zeus, companies representing excellence in the processing of natural materials, wood, metal, stone, marble and terracotta, with an eco-sustainable approach promoting the environment in which they operate.
