Nanda Vigo, Le Corbusier and The devil of the hearth

Three exhibitions on at the Triennale should definitely not be missed: a homage to Le Corbusier by Cassina who in the gardens at the Triennale have reconstructed the interiors of the Cabanon, the hut that the Swiss architect designed and built in 1952 for his holidays at Cap Martin; “Nanda Vigo. Light is life” e “Il diavolo del focolare”.

Three exhibitions on at the Triennale should definitely not be missed: a homage to Le Corbusier by Cassina who in the gardens at the Triennale have reconstructed the interiors of the Cabanon, the hut that the Swiss architect designed and built in 1952 for his holidays at Cap Martin. Recommended however only to those not in a hurry, only four people are allowed in at a time and special overshoes have to be worn (until 4 June).

“Nanda Vigo. Light is life”, curated by Dominique Stella, is a small exhibition (open until 28 May) about the investigations made by Nanda Vigo regarding light, according to this artist “the supporting structure of the philosophy of design”.

Finally “the devil of the hearth” is an exhibition organised by Cosmit who have invited around thirty artists to think about the relationship between the new woman and the new kitchen. In a display curated by Claudia Gian Ferrari and designed by Matali Crasset (open until 30 April) work is on show by Marina Abramovic, Vanessa Beecroft, Monica Bonvicini, Tracey Emin, Mona Hatoum, Sam Taylor-Wood, Rachel Whiteread and others.
