Informal Atelier, Exhibition concept for Piero Manzoni’s art overview, Milan, Italy

The project is a reflection on the works of the informal artist Piero Manzoni.



The mattress immersed in the ground is the bed and the grave, the birth and the death. It is the bath that welcomes and overflows.


The position of the windows and the finishes that end up on the ceiling overturn the volume and suggest the idea of the "Socle du monde".


The process of disappearance of color is both static and dynamic. The white glass of the window fades the world on the other side of the wall.

The tracks, having neither beginning nor end, emphasize cyclicity and ritual athmosfere.


The entrance is defined by a staircase - pedestal. The first two steps are in natural wood.


The concept of the ritual is maintained by the background sound. The sink emits the music of structuralist and conceptual composers.

The superfluos is removed by the paint-purifier of the sink placed at the entrance as if it were receiving the parishioners coming in this informal art space.



The colors disappear. The white implies an absence of everything, but texture. There is just the material itself.

Starting with this step all the space turns white as if it were coloured with a white paint of the tap.


The sculpture with headphones and balloon looks out of the window and listen to the music of the artist's breath.


About Project

The project, inspired by the works of Piero Manzoni, offers an opportunity to find ourselves in an outdoor studio. That causes the death of the usual and of the illusory evidences and stimulates the emergence of concepts and new points of perception.
