During the time of the Architectural Biennale 2014, named Fundamentals, aimed by the idea of questioning about globalization and fading of national characteristics; ICI – Istituto Culturale Internazionale choose to set its exhibition at the origins of relationship between man and its environment.

dynamorphe-7[1].jpg

The exhibition NEPALESE SHAMANIC ART calls indirectly for globalization, leading us to promote identity, ecology, sustainable development.

dynamorphe-8[1].jpg

The exhibition is nestled in the installation DYNAMORPH by ORPROJECT architects based in London, Delhi and Beijing.

dynamorphe-15[1].jpg

The exhibition DYNAMORPH design for the International Cultural Institute’s exhibition Shamanism in Venice has beendeveloped as an energy field around the exhibits. These exhibits act as centers of gravitational forces that pull the volume of the room to form Dynamorph. Positioned between the exhibits and the room, Dynamorph is an isosurface which encloses the visitors and forms a mystical cave to house the exhibits and the movements of the visitor. The surface is a materialization of the ethereal interactions between the visitors and the exhibits, the branching and flowing geometry of the surface evokes the roots, trunk and branches that symbolize the the three worlds of Shamanism.

dynamorphe-16[1].jpg

The visitors enter the force-field of the exhibits and are guided in their journey by the physical installation. Made up of over three thousand individual segments, the tessellated geometry resembles mass and movements – similar to the trajectory of planetary mass under the influence of stars or black holes, formation of cumulonimbus clouds guided by pressure and temperature variations and winds or the interaction between electromagnetic fields and subatomic particles. In Dynamorph, the exhibits are the energy points of the exhibition, the visitors move under their influence, and the surface is a physical manifestation of both.

Milan Asian Art , the only Italian event which aims to promote the art of Eastern Europe, is back for the fifth consecutive year thanks to the collaboration of eight galleries lit Milan Dalton Somare , David Sorgato , Giuseppe Piva, Illulian , The Galliavola , Mirco Cattai , Renzo Freschi and Gracis which will host the London gallery of Ben Janssens , one of the leading international specialists in Asian art and Antiquairs Chairman of TEFAF Maastricht .

Milan Asian Art is not just a trade event but an event that hopes to unite, as in London and New York, the totality of the fans because it is an artistic and cultural relevance , and complete that even in 2014 it uses, and is gratified by the partnership with the Poldi Pezzoli Museum , an institution that has always been with the world of collecting a very strong bond .

Designed and made with skill and critical attention , the nine exhibitions offer an articulated vision that comes from antiquity to the contemporary period , but also for cultural matrix composite moving from the Near to the Far East through the Indian sub-continent and south -east Asia .
