Twodesigners | Kork, table and lighting

KORK proposes to start from the simple and usual cork and realize a family of objects based on the connection between different elements. Every combination has its own identity as well on a visual level as on a functional level. Every piece is composed of a metal hooping in which two elements enter and combine.

The use of cork as a material has many advantages and guarantees an assembly without using any paste or screw. The metal hooping compresses the two elements and creates a mechanical solidity. So in its use the concept proposes a multitude of possible assemblages based on some basic cork pieces, transforming the object along with every new combination. Saving raw material was also a priority in our research subverting the image of the simple cork, this family of objects is based on the connection between the various typologies.

Interviews | September 24, 2020

I was born in Mexico City, my parents were both plastic artists, so artistic expression is in my blood, it is part of me, beyond what academic study can do for anyone. My mother said I was born bored. I am a person who gets bored easily with routine. What I paint, must necessarily take me to a world full of fantasy where there is always an explanation for my reality. Read more


INTERVIEW: MELANIE MOLLO

Interviews | September 24, 2020

Feelings flow freely into the soul, without control, as the colors on the canvas become one with it. That it is happiness, sadness, love, passion, anger, they dominate us and dominate our actions. Like the flow of a river into the sea, they get lost in the immensity of our being, regenerating itself in the latter, and then share their new life as a drop and source of feeling. This underlines the cyclical nature without a beginning or an end. Feelings are part of us forging our character. Read more


BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
