Organismi – From Émile Gallé's Art Nouveau to Bioarchitecture, curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Virginia Bertone


Tag: Food and Art

Organisms is an art, architecture, photography and food exhibition connecting Art Nouveau to the contemporary. It offers a new outlook on the relations between late 19th- and early 20th-century organicist perspectives and today's bio-oriented culture.
The first part revolves around Émile Gallé, whose fine vases, furniture and designs are on display, and also the drawings by Art Nouveau architect Raimondo D’Aronco and the scientific ones by Santiago Ramón y Cajal, who discovered the neuron. Our times are represented by the works of French artist Pierre Huyghe, who in the past years has been creating actual eco-systems like contemporary art pieces, alongside botanist Patrick Blanc, who invented the “plant walls”, and architect Mario Cucinella, whose vision of an eco-friendly and sustainable architecture is based on the principle that every building ought to empathise the relation with its surrounding climate and culture. Also the projects of artists Marcos Lutyens and Elena Mazzi are on display. Sustainable food is documented by videos and material concerning the birth of Slow Food founded by Carlo Petrini, and by the project Granai della Memoria of the Università degli Studi di Scienze Gastronomiche in Pollenzo, aimed at preserving the world's knowledge.
