#4 On the Verge of Form

14 FEB - 4 MAR 2018

Tuesday - Sunday
10.30 am - 8.30 pm
Palazzo della Triennale
A series of exhibitions devoted to materials and handicrafts

La Triennale di Milano presents Materialmente, a series of five small exhibitions, from October 2017 to March 2018, showing the work of young artists/sculptors who reinterpret traditional materials from a contemporary angle.

On the Verge of Form is the fourth event in the series, presenting the work of the artist Livia Marin.

Livia Marin’s works, which constitute a complex investigation into the consistency of form and its dissolution, perfectly embody the aspirations of a series of entitled Materialmente, conceived of as a journey through handcraft that turns into art, and vice versa. In this case, when the idea of Chinese porcelain came up against the fully industrialised world of England in the Victorian age, and the result was the mass production of artefacts that, almost 2 centuries later, the Chilean artist plays at melting. Born in Chile in 1973, Livia Marin has lived in London for many years, and is now a leading figure on the international scene of politically engaged art, though she never abandons a more formal and playful dimension.
