FORM(AT) STRATEGY IN ARCHITECTURE by ATTILIO TERRAGNI
Companies, Sport & Wellness, Factories, Gallery,
An installation that encourages the visitor to reflect on, interpret and deconstruct the relationship between people and architecture by means of two contrasting environments: a navigable area and a transparent area.
In the navigable area, which represents the modern version of infinity, the subject (the onlooker) is reflected by a system of mirrors and projected into the loop of emotional expression consisting of art, design, film, photography, sound... life in relation to the perpetual motion of infinity. In the centre of the installation is the SFERA chair, a steel creation inspired by Libeskind’s architecture, designed for the occasion by Attilio Terragni and Luca Mangione. On the opening day, visitors will be able to have themselves photographed inside the installation.
The transparent area focuses on built spaces, in this case projects undertaken by the Cityedge and Daniel Libeskind firms, which draw their inspiration from the fire of life and its centrifugal dynamism, represented by Terragni’s drawings on the walls.
These consist of fifty circular compositions, called “Sfere” (“Spheres”), constantly on the brink of implosion.
On 22 June, at the opening of FORM(AT) – Strategy in Architecture, Luca Molinari, architect, critic and curator of SpazioFMGperl’Architettura will present the book of the same title by Attilio Terragni, published by Zabriskie Point Edition.
“In FORM(AT) Strategy in Architecture, Attilio Terragni uses the snowy whiteness of the Active Clean Air & Anti-bacterial Ceramic™ slabs, which clothe the gallery’s spaces like a white canvas on which he is able to draw his musings on a universal theme: the relationship between people and architecture," comments Graziano Verdi, Chairman and CEO of GranitiFiandre and Iris Ceramica.
