DEDAR presents ORNAGHI & PRESTINARI
For the D’Days, two young Italian artists meet Dedar: Rue Bonaparte 20 show room hosts Ornaghi &Prestinari’s first art project in Paris.
In their works, the artists engage directly with the potential of materials and techniques, ranging from ancient complex ones like silvering to experiments with new methods. Particularly interested in the duality inherent in every action, the artists maintain a prevalently aesthetic component with elegant, sophisticated tones, evoking in their insights fascinating figurative compositions with great intensity.
For their approach to creation and art, Antonella has selected them and suggested Dedar to invite them in its Paris venue to present a new installation, inspiraed by Dedar’s textiles.
The show is curated by Antonella in collaboration with Galleria Continua, San Gimignano, Bejiging, Le Moulin.
