IGLOOS IN MILAN

Posted by: Gisella Borioli
Igloos doesn’t come unnoticed, the extraordinary exhibition that welcomes visitors in the immense Hangar Pirelli Bicocca in Milan, open until the 24th February 2019. A dreamlike village that gathers conceptual “shelters” created by Mario Merz (1925-2003), master of Arte Povera, throughout the years with natural materials or ones that life provided him, pieces of woods, concrete rebars, faggots picked up in woods, broken glasses, metal sheets, words turned into lights with neons. Igloos in particular, visually reminiscing primordial homes, for the artist become the archetype of the inhabited places in the world and the metaphor of the different relations between indoor and outdoor, between physical and conceptual space, between individuality and community. An exhibition project curated by Vicente Todolí and created in collaboration with the Fondazione Merz. It will certainly be appreciated by Superstudio’s visitors, used to move among art, architecture, beauty, visions with deep origins in the past and leaps into the future.
