Reflections and ambivalences in “Editions (Pistoletto + NM3)”

The dialogue between two artistic productions of different nature in the spaces of Tempesta Gallery: Michelangelo Pistoletto’s screen-printed mirrors reflect the metallic accents of the objects by studio NM3. The show can be visited online until March 23.

Set up in the spaces of Tempesta Gallery, the exhibition “Editions (Pistoletto + NM3)” displays the works by Michelangelo Pistoletto and NM3, the design studio founded by Delfino Sisto Legnani, Nicolò Ornaghi and Francesco Zorzi.

Two artistic productions of different periods and disciplines, sharing a strict aesthetics of forms and materials, dialogue in the total white spaces of the Milanese gallery founded by gallerist Simone Becchio. Michelangelo Pistoletto’s screen-printed mirrors, produced between the Sixties and the Seventies, break the distance between the observer and the work, interacting with the metallic reflections of the steel objects designed by NM3.

The aesthetics of the exhibition is based on the ambiguity of form and function. The pieces can be traced back to everyday life but at the same time they have an ambivalent nature: the mirror, a domestic element, is in parallel an object of interest in the artistic and literary fields. The rest of the elements, shapes that recall a bookcase or a coffee table, take on a sculptural value in the context of the minimalist sculpture of the second half of the twentieth century.
