On the occasion of Milan Design Week, Julia Marmi will be present at Hoperaperta exhibition by Hoperaperta “The celibate object. For a chamber art A? Réaction Poétique”, by Patrizia Catalano and Maurizio Barberis, from 4 to 10 september2021.
Julia Marmi will present “Munariano” by the Spanish Architect Mariano Martín: a tribute to Bruno Munari’s Useless Machines (published in “La Lettura” for 1940), a project that seeks to challenge the performance of matter, in this case stone, and much else. His is a poetic that works against the obvious and the usual. “For what reason,” asks Mariano, “Does stone always have to be cut orthogonally? Why can’t we disrupt this rigorousness? And above all, Why do we have to consider stone an ‘authoritative’ material and not, for instance, sustainable? Munariano is a work created with discarded pieces of Piasentina Stone.
The work will be exhibited at the Wannenes Auction House in Palazzo Recalcati, via Amedei 8 in Milan.
At the Radisson Collection Hotel it will also be possible to admire La Pirogue, by Davide Valoppi, presented at Hoperaperta 2020.
