Inventario 14: Everything Is A Project
A plethora of offerings awaits in this instalment, beginning not least with the photography of Robert Frank. Artistic contributions include the ambiguous, absurd assemblages by Amalia Pica, and a map of the world made out of marbles by Palestinian-born Mona Hatoum, which makes us think about the non-negotiable space between individual freedom and the violence of power. Other items include a carpet with coloured abstract shapes by Bruno Munari, Alberto Burri’s “Grande Cretto” memorial to the destroyed Sicilian town of Gibellina, an interview with product designer Lorenzo Damiani by Marco Romanelli, a meditation on cracks and how to repair them, and elephants.
