The importance of what we have on our planet in the Mercado Libre commercial

The importance of what we have on our planet in the Mercado Libre commercial

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Art

In recent years, aerospace research in several countries no longer aims to discover new planets, stars or galaxies, but to investigate ways of living far from the Earth. What scientists and technicians are looking for is a place with a mild climate, with the presence of oxygen, water, and fertile soil, without being predisposed to atmospheric disasters such as sandstorms, tidal waves or hurricanes. 

It seems almost paradoxical: we are looking for a planet exactly like the one in which we live and which we are throwing away. In practice, it seems that scholars are telling us that between taking care of our planet and finding a new place in the infinity of the Universe in which to live, the second option is easier. 

It is on this assumption that the spot edited by the agency Gut Buenos Aires is based to advertise the section dedicated to eco-sustainable products sold and auctioned on the Latin American e-commerce platform Mercado Libre

It’s a short that goes straight to the point: we follow the adventures of a man who, with his spaceship, travels the Universe far and wide in search of a place, another place to live, but in the end we must accept the idea that no place is like the Earth and that the sooner we realize it, the sooner we will take more care of it.  

“On other planets we look for what we don’t take care of in ours.”

Steccolecco and Fendi open their pop-up ice cream parlour

Steccolecco and Fendi open their pop-up ice cream parlour

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Art

A few days before the end of summer and in concomitance with the Milan Fashion Week, Fendi inaugurates its first pop-up ice cream parlour, born from the renewed collaboration with Steccolecco, the famous ice cream parlour born in Rome a few years ago. 

At the Central Station of Milan, in Piazza Duca D’Aosta, 1, until October 14 you can enter the small temporary and taste the beautiful ice cream that for the occasion have been costumed with the most famous textures of the brand and decorated with the iconic logo with the double F. 

We would like to point out that although the shape of the “Steccolecco” recalls that of the icicles, those offered by the Roman company are real ice creams, as they have the presence of milk inside. 

The Steccolecco by Fendi could become the inevitable accessory of this Fashion Week.

Sam Jacob tackles the theme of plastic with Sea Things

Sam Jacob tackles the theme of plastic with Sea Things

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Art

For London Design Week, Sam Jacob and his architectural studio presented an installation that aims to raise public awareness of the effects of the massive use of plastic on the seas and oceans. Hanging at the entrance of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Sea Things dominates the heads of visitors who, looking up, will be captured by an enormous cube on which an animation that traces the history of plastic is continuously projected. 

The video begins in 1907 when the bakelite was first synthesized and ends in 2050, designated by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation as the year in which the volume of plastic in the seas will exceed that of all marine animals. 

With the installation Sea Things, the Sam Jacob Studio also presented a series of 8 vases. There are seven reproductions of ceramic vases in the V&A Museum collection but made of recycled plastic, bio-plastic or alternative materials. The latter, on the other hand, reproduces a classic plastic bottle in ceramic. 

Discover Sea Things in our gallery!

See how the exhibition KAWS: Companionship In The Age Of Loneliness” will look like

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Art

A few weeks ago, talking about GONE, the new KAWS vinyl Companion, we mentioned the exhibition “KAWS: Companionship In The Age Of Loneliness“, dedicated to Brian Donnelly‘s pop creations. 

The exposition will be hosted by the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne and will be open to the public from 20 September 2019 to 13 April 2020

KAWS Companionship In The Age Of Loneliness | Collater.al

KAWS: Companionship In The Age Of Loneliness will address 4 different themes: “Public Interventions,” “Iconography,” “Order And Chaos,” and “Companionship”. In addition, an area has been created entirely dedicated to children and to stimulate their creativity and the exhibition ends with a shop where you can buy the famous statuettes, but also t-shirts and other items not to be missed. 

Since KAWS animated the streets of New York it has had a unique impact on the public, then, succeeding in the difficult transition from the street to the galleries has reached not only lovers of street art, but art lovers in general. Today the name KAWS is inextricably linked to the figure of the companion who, always remaining himself, has had the strength to adapt to different contexts and environments. 

If you want to find out in which direction contemporary art is going, you can’t help but follow all the movements of KAWS and you can’t miss the exhibition in Melbourne. In the meantime, we’ll give you a little taste of it.

Christo’s wrapped Arc de Triomphe, coming in 2020.

Christo’s wrapped Arc de Triomphe, coming in 2020.

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Art

The destiny of Christo Javachev and Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon was perhaps already written in their date of birth, the two artists – although one in Bulgaria and the other in France – were both born on June 13, 1935. It will be the case to cross their paths and from that meeting, which took place in ’58, will be born, beyond a relationship, the most stunning contemporary duo of artists, known simply as Christo.  

The duo Christo began to create his works in Paris, where it immediately became part of the artistic current of the Nouveau Réalisme, thanks to the Objets Emballé, or objects of daily use wrapped with cloth and thread. 

This theme is inspired by the emblematic work of Man Ray L’Enigme d’Isidore Ducasse: an object with an indefinite shape, covered and wrapped. This work has become one of the symbols of Dadaism, introducing the element of the unknown into art history. 

It is precisely the thought of presenting a hidden work that fascinates Christo, which replicates the concept not only on objects but also on monuments or landscapes. From the Statue of Victor Emmanuel II in Piazza Duomo in Milan to the Roman Walls in Rome, from an entire beach to the Pont-Neuf in Paris, there are many monuments that, over the years, have been packaged by Christo.

Paradoxically, in so doing Christo transforms an existing work of art into a work of art, hiding it from the public and, in this way, reborn a sort of curiosity about it. 

If you’ve never come across one of its wrapped monuments, don’t despair because exactly one year from now, from 19 September to 4 October 2020, the Arc de Triomphe will be perfectly wrapped. Christo has been working on this project since 1962 and 2020 has proved to be the right year to realize it.  

“Thirty-five years after Jeanne-Claude and I wrapped the Pont-Neuf, I am eager to work in Paris again to realize our project for the Arc de Triomphe.” 

To get an idea of the final result, the same duo published photographs of the preparatory sketches and projects, if I were you I would already book a weekend in Paris for next year.
