Notebook of a kinetic artist

Pino Pinelli interviewed by Giorgio Verzotti
“My colors not only lie flat. My red, for example, is the sum of different tonal gradations that I modify, adjust and elicit until I obtain the maximum sonorousness, the highest pitch. Painting fascinates and seduces.”
–Pino Pinelli

The Shade by Riccardo Beretta
“Leaving the paternal home I learned contamination. To pierce an inlay doesn’t, in fact, entail breaking its compositional narrative but rather renders it more complex. In my works, the combination of materials is no longer strictly two-dimensional but proceeds by leaps of matter.”
–Riccardo Beretta

Making Clothes for the Friends Around the World by SUNNEI
“Numerous magazines have written of us in terms of ‘new Made in Italy.’ We like to think that they are not simply referring to the idea of young people producing in an old village in the Veneto, but rather to the approach—spontaneous and informal—that is really and truly Italian.”

Dear Chisel by Andrea Sala
“In my works enamel glaze, patinated plaster, hand manipulation and other techniques relating to the applied arts are chosen to amplify the aesthetic effect of artifacts that collect in their very form the stories of their making.”
–Andrea Sala

Clasterfuck by Formafantasma
“Understanding the intrinsic meaning of objects allows us to know and to externalize ourselves better. In this sense, the craft gradually assumes a near-symbolic value, for which the ‘handmade’ object embodies a more sustainable method, more honest and human to produce.”
