Inventario 16: Everything is a Project
The matches on the cover can be thought of as inflammatory bodies, sparks and matter that flare, smoulder, and devour themselves. They are objects with a common destiny: to shine for a moment, only to hastily vanish. It follows that objects and artworks inspired by matches are the first things featured in this edition, segueing into a brief survey of Noma Bar’s clever, deceptively simple illustrations. Continuing, explore the destabilising properties of the colour pink, learn about Mel Bochner’s conceptual artwork ‘Theory of Painting’, wade into the enigmatic photography of Todd Hido, check out different architectural elevations (literally), and wonder at Massimo Gardone’s chromatic herbaria.
