Primitives is a choral collection of nine displays for small scale items. Starting from the fascination of Constantine Brancusi’s archetypal podiums for his sculptures, the ambition of this project was to question the dichotomy and the boundaries between the content and the container, the exhibit and the exhibition, replica and authenticity in an endless loop. The boldly shaped forms, conceived as micro stages, are simple and primitive but their uniqueness in color, height, rough texture and shape generate complexity and became eye-catching individually.
该系列作品为西西里锡拉库扎艺术与设计学院的设计项目 Made Program。该项目由Moncada Rangel Studio指导，作品来自于学生的手工制作。该系列已被西西里化妆品品牌收入，并展出于锡拉库扎老城区的艺廊中。
Each display has been hand-made in plywood and coated in papier-mâché by graduate students during the Model Making course led by Moncada Rangel Studio in the new Fine Arts & Design Academy in Syracuse, Sicily, Made Program. The displays have been acquired by a Sicilian brand of cosmetics and are currently exhibit in a small gallery/retail space in the island of Ortygia, the historical center of Syracuse.
