Mother Nature and Planet Earth are at the centre of a tale of materials set to the tune of creative irony in a dual exhibition trail created by the artist Nero/Alessandro Neretti for Gruppo Romani at Fuorisalone 2018. The title of this event, which is being held in two locations in Milan from 17th to 22nd April, is Ceramic Universe. It is dedicated to environmental sustainability; one of Gruppo Romani’s main objectives.
The Mother Nature installation, located in Via Solferino 14, has been conceived by designers Francesca Po, Ester Sirito and Giacomo Bassamaji as a dense and light geometrical structure composed of metal and porcelain stoneware in which the graphic markings of the artist Nero/Alessandro Neretti, engraved with a new laser technique developed by the Casalgrande company, break in and set fire to the severity of the material.
In this dual event, Gruppo Romani presents the innovative technique of laser engraving which enables a unique, customized decoration to be achieved. This technique may be applied to any ceramic surface of products from the Gruppo Romani brands because it maintains intact all the technical characteristics of the material.
Nero/Alessandro Neretti is a visual artist and a critical observer of the contemporary condition. He explores, with a cynical eye, the dynamics of present-day reality with objets trouvé assembled into complex installations. The aim is provocation, offering an alternative to historical and cultural collapse.
