Exhibition at “Officine Grandi Riparazioni – OGR”, for the celebrations for 150th anniversary of the Italy’s unification.
Hosted at “Officine Grandi riparazioni – OGR”, huge cathedral of manual work at the early 19th century, the exhibition, conceived and curated by Enzo Biffi Gentili, took place in 2011, for the celebrations for 150th anniversary of the Italy’s unification.
Divided into three sections, showcases the italian genius, trasmitting the qualitative value of artifacts, through multiple aspects of applied arts, in a perfect sinergy between artistic handwork and new digital technologies.
The exhibition, which draws strong inspiration from the site, highlights the many artifacts with supports, brackets or metal containers, often commons in the engineering world, within spaces that made industrial history.
Natural light coming from above, creates an almost surreal atmosphere within the space, aided by floodlights on beams that emphasize the materiality of many artworks on display.
