[to be surprised, to marvel, to see with amazement, to admire, to contemplate with respect.]
Building presents Mīror, a project by the designer's collective The Ladies' Room (Ilaria Bianchi, Agustina Bottoni, Astrid Luglio, Sara Ricciardi) designed for the spaces of the Moshe Tabibnia Gallery (via Brera 3, Milan) and produced in collaboration with the Centro Studi Moshe Tabibnia.
A collection of three reflective sculptures that arises from the exploration of the image in a game of optical illusions and alteration of perception.
The search for a precise moment, the one in which to be amazed by discovering a form, a detail, a void, a reflection or oneself. The spectator becomes an active protagonist in the space, invited to enter the orbit of the object to see his own image, recompose his portrait, admire new perspectives of the surrounding works and then return to get lost.
Mīror is an invitation to relate to one's own image by exploring the concept expressed by Roland Barthes in "Light chamber" (1979) in which, during the moment of reflection, the subject becomes an object.
A kinetic work that is perceived in phases and is partially revealed by the action of the lenticular effect.
The use of markedly industrial materials chosen for their technical efficiency generate a dichotomy in the perception of objects, now subtle and impalpable, now defined and present.
Three mirrors but also three voids and three geometric shapes to be enjoyed through different angles of reflection.
An exclusive project for Building that dialogues with a selection of textile works created by different artists of the twentieth century, chosen by The Ladies ’Room in collaboration with the Centro Studi Moshe Tabibnia.
