CONTACT MMXX OFF

A project that was born from afar, in time and space, which is almost the translation of a travel diary of the protagonists, written together during the artistic residency at the Art Pottery Village in Fuping, China, in the autumn of 2019 .

The essence of the project was to create an experience, to deal with techniques and cultures, to bring home new perspectives to transform the traditional repertoire of Italian ceramics. An encounter with a different reality and a different approach to ceramic processing and a meeting also between artists and potters: Gabriele mrCorto Resmini, Luca Pi Pellegrino, Stefano e Patrizio Bartoloni.
With the collaboration for the realization of the jewels of Arch’oro – Valeria Grasso, Officina900.

The G. Gianetti Ceramics Museum in Saronno and the Subert Gallery in Milan are hosting the Contact MMXX exhibition. A project which came from afar, in both time and space, and which is almost the translation of a travel diary written by the protagonists during their artistic residency at the Art Pottery Village in Fuping, China, in the autumn of 2019.
The essence of the project was to create an experience which explored artistic techniques and cultures, and which would bring back home new perspectives capable of transforming the traditional repertoire of Italian ceramics. An encounter with a different reality and a different approach to ceramic processing, as well as a meeting between artists and potters: Gabriele mrCorto Resmini, Luca Pi Pellegrino, Stefano e Patrizio Bartoloni.
With the collaboration for the realization of the jewels of Arch’oro – Valeria Grasso, Officina900.

The first exhibition of the work took place last year at the Museum of Montelupo Fiorentino, and the works are now back on display in Saronno and Milan after a year’s standstill. The show then moves on to Faenza (RV) and finally to Albisola Superiore (SV). The resulting collection, produced by the Bartoloni workshop and Officina 900, mixes and redefines the shapes and decorations of both the museum and traditional collections of Montelupo Fiorentino and Albisola Superiore. It relies on in-depth research and shows a high level of documentation, as demonstrated by the exhibition’s layout and catalog, all under the guidance and curatorship of Matteo Zauli. Between the two locations, Saronno and Milan, there are 18 vases on display all inspired by the Montelupo and Albisolese traditions, as well as 2 prototypes that represent a synthesis between the two different artistic schools. In addition, specially designed for the Lombardy exhibitions, 3 new shapes, some dishes that reference eighteenth-century Milanese maiolica and a small tribute of jewelery inspired by Gio Ponti.

The work created specifically for the G. Gianetti Ceramics Museum was inspired by iconic sources, in particular, by the ironic prints of J. Callot, which passed through the skilled hands of the eighteenth-century Milanese decorators working for the factories of Felice Clerici and Pasquale Rubati. Today, with these contemporary works, a new style linked to Milan is born. A style which is more linear while at the same time ironic, blending characters and iconographies to create “Fashion Monsters”, a tribute to the Milan of fashion and design.
