ProjectB will be at Spazio Krizia in Via Manin, 21 for a temporary exhibition of the Israeli-duo Raw-Edges on the occasion of the FuoriSalone 2018.
Following the invitation to create an exhibition at Milan's Spazio Krizia, Raw-Edges have decided to continue the legacy of this particular space and to focus on light installation; for many years the light designer Ingo Maurer had accommodated his Salone’s shows at this space and last year it was Formafantasma who dedicate their Foundation show to experiments with light.
On show a group of about 30 ‘dancing lights’; each one assembled
from multiply casted glass curved ‘leaves’ has an inner side to side pivoting movement.
As a result of this movement the strength of light is dimmed and the shape is constantly transformed (contract and extract like breathing). The clacking sound of the
glass occurs at the end of each turn, pursuing the fascination with repetition of objects and the power of multiplication.
The meaning of a repeated object is changed when it is a part of a larger
group and a matter of humanisation is often arize and this signifiance is even gareter if a synchronised
movement occur within this group of multiplied objects.
Synchronisation is intriguing as when we watch synchronised
dancers such as the traditional Israeli Horah dancers or synchronised swimmers and even
north Korean marching parade, a certain emotion is being evoked. It appears that human
attraction to synchronisation sights and sounds, is rooted in a primitive mindset of the
survival of the group to the vulnerability of the individual. In other words, we are drawn to
the power of group cohesiveness, and a coordinated rhythmic movement is powerfully
captivating our attention. Horah Lamps are inspired on one side by coordinate
human movements and on the other by technical revolving daily objects
such as roof vents.
The project has been developed, crafted and engineered by WonderGlass and designed by Raw-Edges.
