2.0 – An Exhibition at the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum – Milan
Two Landlords and two Ladies, plus a magnificent Mansion have created an Exhibition that opens up a dialogue between past and present trends.
Like one would do with a flower composition, 16 artists display their pieces in an untouched environment of blissful past beauty developed over the centuries by a generous family who later wished to share their home with everyone.
Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi, together with patroness Goga Ashkenazi and Rossana Orlandi who provided the creative inspiration for it, are celebrating a new interpretation of a red thread bridging the Past with the Contemporary spirit.
From Home to Home, the endless and timeless journey of artworks and exquisite pieces that are made to last is marked by a softly inspirational beginning, as Rossana Orlandi did it, almost silently and cosily placing 14 chairs into the rooms of the Museum for the watchmen to rest and proving that beautiful objects never clash but rather nurture each other.
Nacho Carbonell’s magnificent Chandelier inspired by Maison Vionnet is one of the multi-faceted interpretations of the concept of mixing forty-five degrees angles – inspired by the iconic bias cut on dresses that Madeleine Vionnet invented in the early 20th century – and the historical fashion house’s signature blue colour. The rooms host artworks from Front Design, Studio Deform, Paul Heijnen, Niels Hoebers, Thomas Libertiny, Yukiko Nagai, Frederique Morrel, Dirk Van Der Kooij, Maarten Baas, Martin Smith, President Von Pelt, Enrico Marone Cinzano, Massimiliano Locatelli from CLS Architetti, Manuela Crotti and Giampiero Milella.
A rejuvenating feeling around a family museum and the beginning of a passionate endeavour.
