Intuiition at Palazzo Fortuny

Intuiition at Palazzo Fortuny

During the Venice Biennalle  there is more to see than the art exhibited at the Arsenale exhibition spaces and Giardini della Biennale. For instance, at Palazzo Fortuny the exhibition Intuiition can be seen. It’s a collection of historic, modern and contemporary works, related to the concept of intuition, dreams, telepathy, paranormal fantasy, meditation, creative power, hypnosis and inspiration. Intuition is the last in a series of 4 exhibitions at the Palazzo Fortuny cocurated by Axel Vervoordt and Fortuny museum director Daniela Ferretti.

Similar to the The boat is leaking. The captain lied. exhibition at Fondazione Prada held in another Palazzo in Venice downtown, the Intuiition exhibition also took us on a tour throughout the 3 stories high building. Each floor is transformed into something one would call an installation: each floor set in a different atmosphere, nice!

You can visit Intuiition through 26 November 2017

The Boat is Leaking The Captain Lied The Exhibition

The Boat is Leaking The Captain Lied The Exhibition

Is a long title for the transmedia exhibition project by Alexander Kluge, Thomas Demand, Anna Viebrock and curator Udo Kittelmann. The Boat is Leaking. The Captain Lied. is situated in Ca’ Corner della Regina, the 18th century Palazzo which houses Fondazione Prada in Venice. Having such a wonderful backdrop must have been very inspiring for the artists; we feel this installation (built throughout the 3 floors of the palazzo) was custom made. It is, as always, hard for us to write about art because we feel you have to experience it for yourself. But we will try: because we think this exhibition was lovely, and that fact needs to be shared!

We are no art critics, just art lovers and furthermore we are basic art-consumers: We love to just watch and let our minds go free (intuition) and enjoy. This is one of the reasons we liked this exhibition (and then some, at the Venice Biennale) The Boat is Leaking. The Captain Lied is divided into several rooms, or spaces and settings. Walking through the installations we felt like explorers: being curious about what’s next. The artists also made sure that you were part of the backstage situation. All together: pure instant gratification. Find out what you should know about The Boat is Leaking. The Captain Lied. HERE at the FP site.

Matti Suuronen’s Futuro House

Matti Suuronen’s Futuro House

We, at Mimi Berlin, came to know about Matti Suuronen’s Futuro House via the Salone del Mobile 2017. On Instagram; we didn’t attend the Design Week this year because we missed our flight.  So this week we will be posting about venues, designs and other places we feel we really missed out on.

Image of yellow Futuro house via artsy.net if you are interested in trends spotting go to this site for some trend watching as well.

This flying saucer type of building is something we really wanted to see in real life. A yellow version stood in front of the Louis Vuitton Fondation at the Palazzo Bocconiin in Milan, where the newest designs for the Objets Nomades Collection were on display.

The Futuro House was designed in 1968 by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen. It was commissioned as a portable “holiday house” or ski chalet. Because it would be used in a mountainside setting, the structure needed to be easy to transport to the site, low maintenance and shed snow easily. The final design of the Futuro House met all those criteria. It’s just over 26 feet in diameter and came completely equipped with ctom furnishings that fit the interesting shape of this house.

Hiring the Futuro. Why think outside the box, when you can think inside a circle? Various forward looking companies and institutions have already taken the opportunity to use the  Futuro House as an inspirational and unique meeting or event space. “more info at futurohouse.co.uk
