Corraini Arte Contemporanea (via Ippolito Nievo 7/a) presents an exhibition by Giulio Iacchetti, curated by Beppe Finessi. The form of the cross is the starting point for this design research:its sign (cross as symbol of divinity, place of encounter, center of relations) is observed and analyzed, case by case, as a hidden form inside reality, a symbol that conveys religious and human meanings. Breaking down objects and portions of space, investigating the constructive possibilities of certain materials, observing everyday objects in a new way, Iacchetti designs the form of the cross in the structure of a perforated brick, operating through subtraction from a basic module in a sheet of postage stamps, successfully combining electrical clamps with their bolts to allude to the nails of the Crucifixion. This exhibition includes a selection of projects by Giulio Iacchetti based on five years of research, offering a demonstration of how “design can be not just a solution to functional needs or commercial demands, but can also become a way of talking about one’s own manner of seeing and abiding in the ‘things’ of the world” (Beppe Finessi).
