Milan | “ANIMAlità” at the Triennale Design Museum
Among many other events running in the next two months, from13 January to 22 February the Triennale Design Museum and Bosa present the exhibition ANIMAlità, with unseen works by Sam Baron, Matteo Cibic, GamFratesi, Jaime Hayon, Sebastian Herkner, Lanzavecchia+Wai, Minale-Maeda, Elena Salmistraro, Ionna Vautrin and Nika Zupanc, who were asked to create for the occasion a collection of apotropaic, playful and animist pieces of pottery playing with the subject of animal nature, as much literally as metaphorically and creatively.
The project is part of a decade-long process of research that started with the cycle of exhibitions Le parole e le cose, created and curated by Silvana Annicchiarico.
So, Triennale Design Museum goes on in its reflections on bringing a physical as well as an objectual animal nature back into the tamed world.
Such items are like affective prostheses: they exude nature in a place that is quintessentially cultural (architecture and living) and welcome the animal nature back as an item.
