Argini Variabili exhibition: interior design and art meet
Photographic exhibition: two architect elaborate a project to enhance the works of a young photographer. When interior design and art meet, then you are in Trentino, but you dream to be in Australia, you can sit on logs coming from the woods surrounding your house and you can smell them, the photos of the animals are at child height and you can even touch them.
Argini Variabili exhibition: a dream to realize
The exhibition Argini Variabili, held in the Sala Maier of Pergine Valsugana, exhibits the photos of Andrea Vicentini, a young artist who combines technique, research and emotional impact. The main theme is Australia, a country he visited to immortalize its natural landscapes, its culture and the people living there.
Argini Variabili exhibition: our project and construction
The setting captures the contrasts, the grandeur and even the contradictions of such a great country; the choice of using black and white tones brings the viewer back to one of the expressive modes of the artist’s photography, but at the same time, it takes advantage of the inherent characteristics of the exhibition place..The floor, partially covered with black pvc, gave the input for entrance design.
The piazza Serra pavement was covered with a carpet with the title of the exhibition, thus inviting the visitor to enter. The shape and the black entrance remind of the interior of a camera. Once the visitor passes through this filter, he is has to make a choice: whether to go right or left, just like an artist whose eye selects and interprets the subject in front of him. Once he is inside, the exhibition space is white and the floor is made of wood. The visitor is attracted by the photographs displayed without labels in an apparently random way but in reality arranged by colour combinations and emotional impressions. Against the white not only the cold shades of the Blue Mountains stand out, the experience is even more vivid thanks to the eucalyptus oil released into the air, but also the beautiful red of the ferrous soil, the colourful billboards, the cars, the passers-by in the centre of Sydney and Melbourne stick out.
Available to visitors in the centre of the space, there are logs either to be used as seats or as a game, because the exhibit is also meant for children: the pictures placed at the bottom show some of the most representative animals of the Australian continent.
