Fantom at miart 2015

Please visit us at our booth in the Institutions, Associations and Foundations area. 

We are happy to announce our participation to the upcoming edition of miart – International Fair of Modern and Contemporary Art, which will take place in Milan from April 9th to 12th. As a result of our collaboration with Marsèll – for the second year together at the fair – we will present Vapensiero, a new site-specific mobile sculpture by London-based Italian artist Maurizio Anzeri.

Anzeri is well known for his embroidered photographs and for his hair sculptures, through which he introduced us into his imaginary worlds with accuracy and lightness.

Giving substance to the sense of vanity that flows into us all; to the exchange that exists between what we are and what we want to be. 

Vapensiero is a sculpture made of 39 found photographs, embroidery and steel.

“The starting point is always a photograph, the needle and thread are my pencil to draw and reinvent the world.”

MAURIZIO ANZERI   was born in Loano, Liguria, in 1969. He obtained an MA from The Slade School of Fine Art in London where he still lives. Among many institutions and galleries, he exhibited his work at The Photographer’s Gallery and Saatchi Gallery, London, at Chapter Art Center, Cardiff, at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, New Castle, at Pier24 Photography, San Francisco and at The National Museum in Oslo.

MIART   From 9th to 12th April the pavilions of fieramilanocity will welcome 156 international galleries representing the best of modern and contemporary art and limited-edition design from all over the world. Once again, the 20th edition will be structured along four sections: Established, with 105 exhibitors subdivided into the sections Master, which includes galleries focusing on historically established artists; Contemporary, for galleries specializing in contemporary work; and First Step, a new sub-section for those galleries which have already received national and international recognition and participating at miart for the first or second time, as well as the galleries that pass from the Emergent to the Established section; Emergent, including 19 avant-garde galleries focusing on young artists, with 16 foreign galleries and 6 making their first appearance in an art fair; THENnow, an invitational section presenting 18 galleries, each showing a comparative installation of works by an established artist and one from a more recent generation; finally, Object offers a selection of 13 galleries active in the promotion of contemporary design created in limited editions and approached as artwork.
