‘Radical Materiality’ at CAOCHANGDI (collaboration with 01100001 Gallery)
ILIVETOMORROW presents for the second Beijing Design week a unique experience of the recent editions and productions of ILIVETOMORROW with its ‘LIMITEDunLIMITED Editions project.
‘Radical Materiality’ shows one year of collaboration between ILIVETOMORROW and Designers, Artists, Architects from China, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Taiwan, Hong Kong and France.
‘Radical Materiality’ proposes to the Beijing Design week a selection of objects, nobjects and installations reflecting conceptual and formal researches.
Beyond Design perspectives and industrial issues, ‘Radical Materiality’ explores the physical limitations of forms and materials and expresses the complex relations between Conceptual explorations, fabrication processes and materialization.
The diversity of the various projects presented by ILIVETOMORROW in Beijing is a manifesto to the recurrent seduction of materials and memory.
Jesse Mc Lin and Julie Progin with ‘Fragment(s)’ and ‘Bloom’ and ‘Rolling Sofa’ by Pedro Campos propose a post-archeology of form, nature and memories.
Bruno Costa has created ironic icons reflecting is conceptual experience in China, the poetry of lightness of the works of Xiaodong are a sensitive ephemeral expression of nature, the hybrid furniture of the Fashion designers CCChu and Nicola Borg-Pisani proposes new domestic environments, Pili Wu’s chair is an intensive dialog with industrial craft, etc.
‘Radical Materiality’ is an experience to object recognition toward a teleology of materiality where objects and prototypes emphasizes the conceptual and visual knowledge.
