Story of the Month
Materials Of Dreams
“The Milk of Dreams takes its title from a book by Leonora Carrington (1917–2011) in which the Surrealist artist describes a magical world where life is constantly re-envisioned through the prism of the imagination. It is a world where everyone can change, be transformed, become something or someone else.” Cecilia Alemani
Cecilia Alemani curates the central pavilion show under the title ‘The Milk Of Dreams’, with a quote after our own hearts, proposing a world where “everyone can change, be transformed, become something or someone else.” This couldn’t be more in line with our sentiment towards materials. We are always looking to extract their hidden potential, and revel in unexpected applications, or transformations.
We look at innovative uses of materials at the Biennale di Venezia, which returns after a long pandemic wait of three years, and highlight some of our favourites!
