Ten Small Atlases | Zona Ventura | Milan 14 - 24 April 2010

In Residence Ten Small Atlases Jo Meesters

TEN SMALL ATLASES is an exhibition that shows the experience of the IN Residence project, a thematic workshop that involves young international designers of recognised talent and even younger students, held in Torino every year since 2008 in the Residence Du Parc.

Each designer is given a space to display hers/his work and a collection of other objects, writings, drawings, images that influenced, inspired, compelled and encouraged the designer in creating the work. Ten dedicated small areas will collect thoughts that will show the creative process and tell the story about the conceiving of each designer’s work and therefore will appear like ‘ten small atlases’.

The idea is to export to Milan, during the days of the International Furniture Show, the idea that created in Turin a series of workshops dedicated to contemporary design at the Du Parc Residence. With the intention to highlight the dialogue and process concepts and with the wish to match them to the story of each experience, Barbara Brondi e Marco Rainò, exhibition curators, would like to create a collection assigning areas to 10 IN Residence designers to give the same visibility; Every space is the final result of a voyage through time that goes from the idea concept to the production of the object chosen for the exhibition. Every space is the place where a collection of all the elements are shown that influenced, inspired, compelled and encouraged the designer during the design of their exhibited work. Every space collects thoughts, analysed in detail or shown in a summary, with relevance only to the project chosen for this event.

Every space is a physical location where a process is witnessed.
