CONNECTING IDEAS / don’t treat me like an object
Some Art inspires because it is a sort of bet : it changes our perception, it is a ‘knock’, an open door on different visions, different approach to art itself, life, identity, relationships.
Here some inspiring art from different artists, times and countries. In common, it has this powerful factor : think differentely.
Patricia Urquiola / Federico Pepe .
Don’t treat me like an object , the object (chair )says .
In the relationship with a seated human being, the object has a sort of ‘soul’ .
It is a game, conceptual art mixed to pure Pop !
It reminds to Pier Paolo Calzolari artworks, his dreamlike chairs, waiting for a visitor and his/her gaze, a glance between the object and the human being that can evocate whatever you want to dream about : waiting, nostalgy, absence, presence. Feelings, to cut a long story short.
Here, the object has a poetic witty soul, and invite to …love ? pity? sensitive approach ? But whatever it is, it is about the idea of ‘feeling art’ again, via the light of neon, thinking about the master, Bruce Naumann.
