第16届威尼斯国际建筑双年展于5月24日到11月25日之间在威尼斯举行。以威尼斯为总部基地的 Berengo基金会此次在Palazzo Franchetti举办了“MEMPHIS – Plastic Field”展。该展览陈列了Memphis group的众多早期优秀作品。

From May 24th to November 25th during the 16th edition of Biennale Architettura, Venice- headquartered Fondazione Berengo is hosting “MEMPHIS – Plastic Field” at Palazzo Franchetti, an exhibition of Memphis group’s design works curated by Jean Blanchaert and Adriano Berengo, friends and collaborators since over fifteen years.

Just like in the early ‘80s when the design group challenged the minimalist trend with a multi- coloured, pop art-inspired style with a provocative soul, this time Memphis’ iconic works will stand out in contrast with Palazzo Franchetti’s historical backcloth. As a frame for the exhibition, a field of black leaves and plants is set to fade out any surrounding colour and let the visitors’ attention focus on the bold and daring range of tones and shapes. The exhibition presents a selection of contemporary productions of the group’s most renowned works in their original design created during the 1981-1987 period. Memphis’ innate irreverence shines through the exhibition’s structure as well.

A thematic room is set to celebrate the impactful shapes and chromatic range of Memphis’ glassworks and to express Fondazione Berengo’s commitment in promoting the elegance and versatility of Murano’s glassmaking.

此外,在展览期间,一个高24英尺的金色鸟笼也降临在Palazzo Franchetti的庭院中。这座镀金鸟笼是中国艺术家艾未未最新也是最有影响力的作品之一。该作品已于去年夏天在纽约中央公园亮相。

Futhermore, a 24 feet tall golden cage is ready to occupy Palazzo Franchetti’s courtyard and to stay throughout the exhibition period. “Gilded Cage” by Ai Weiwei is one of the Chinese artist-activist’s newest and most impactful urban installations, appearing last fall in New York’s Central Park.
