Less: alternative living strategies


maxi capsule luxus by atelier van lieshout, 2002

Some of my favorite artists are showing in “less – alternative living strategies” at the Padiglione d’arte Contemporanea (PAC) in Milan from April 5th – June 18th 2006.

on show are works of 18 artist which did an artistic research on the concept of ‘living’. the living space to live in is both necessity and a catalyst for needs and desires. this exhibition features new ways of living for a more sustainable future. the artists have investigated this theme by moving between micro-architecture and macro-design (and mobility). they seek to critically address complexity of our society down to its most crucial and urgent needs.

installations by following artists: vito acconci, keren amiran, siah armajani, atelier van lieshout, mircea cantor, jimmie durham, carlos garaicoa, N55, lucy orta, maria papadimitriou, marjetica potrc, miachael rakowitz, luca vitone, dré wapenaar, krzysztof wodiczko, silvio wolf, wurmkos and andrea zittel.
