Manifesto | the first retrospective on NUCLEO presented by Italian Institute of Culture

26 March - 6 May '14

Paris

The Italian Institute of Culture in Paris is glad to present from March 26th to May 6th the first important retrospective on NUCLEO, the art and design collective led by Piergiorgio Robino.

The exhibition was conceived and realised by the Nilufar Gallery of Milan, and curated by Elena Giulia Abbiatici and Melania Rossi. It was set up under the “Promises of Art” program, which aims to promote young talents from the ultra-contemporary Italian art scene.

Manifesto tells the story of a group and its assertions. This is not propaganda. It’s a second reading, a proposition.

It is a thought which translates into action, a meeting at the peak of artisanal and artistic research.

The collective meaning of Manifesto is completed by presenting a series of everyday objects – Manifesto, concludes by exploring the evolution and the research innate in visible products. The syntax of lexicon is thus made tangible, tied as it were to the process of invention and creation of objects.

Each object discloses its internal secret as an original artistic vision. The exhibition serves to enforce the creative process by making it explicit and to present the relationship between different materials, shapes, colours, weights and concept, as their balance changes and evolves. The result is a perfect link interlocking empty spaces and volumes, abstract principles and everyday use, potential allusion and the real essence of objects...

NUCLEO’s work is simultaneously material and conceptual: molded by many hands, it has the ambition to combine three forms of knowledge – theory, practice and production (theoria, pràxis e poiesis).

The 15 works on show in the Hôtel de Galliffet are of different formats, all realised with various techniques developed during the past five years. The NUCLEO retrospective will also be the occasion to present Carboniferous, a work commissioned by the committee for the Unification of Italy Sesquicentennial Celebrations.
