LIFE - DIECI POSTER PER DIECI MONDI
B&B I Dieci Mondi
Via Vespri Siciliani, 29/A, Milano
“WHERE BUSINESS MEETS CULTURE”B&B I Dieci Mondi opens its doors to LIFE, a graphic arts exhibition with a focus on high social impact images. Those pictures tell the story of a reality where the obviousness of certain worlds gets in the way of granting others the same conditions of living and surviving. This all takes place For the 55th edition of Salone del Mobile. The feeling that links them is solitary and deep, highly individual, but what nailed the view is the reminiscence of a common experience. If the obviousness of certain worlds collides with the need to provide to others the same conditions of existence and not only survival, the Author's attention takes a shot on what can become a source of life, the main element, the needed energy. It's not the crime of topical subjects, but a silent debate that paralyzes the body and pushes the mind to reflection, to the desire of understanding the others and being understood, to the artistic introspection. Rising artist - not to be considered worldwide unknown due to this reason - Alessandro Di Sessa is the author of the pieces showing up in the exhibition (April 12th - 17th) at the new venue in Piazza Napoli that is part of Tortona-Savona, one among the most important spots from FuoriSalone.
All of the posters have been previously selected for social-related graphics contests. They have been in the spotlight at international graphic design exhibitions, such as:Dumlupınar Üniversitesi International Poster Competition, Kütahya, Turkey, 2015; Blank Poster for Kon paper, Einstein Kultur, Munich, Germany, 2015; Golden Bee Biennale of Graphic Design, Moscow, Russia, 2014; Utilità Manifesta, Terni, Italy, 2013; Positive Posters, Melbourne, Australia; 2013; Poster for Tomorrow, Paris, France, 2011; Good 50x70, Milan, Italy, 2011; Positive Posters, Melbourne, Australia, 2011. “I have been producing posters since 2010. I just randomly started as I was feeling the urge to express myself in a free, spontaneous and natural way. When drawing I connect to my inner self, almost losing sight of reality. That moment often means a bit of trance to me: I end up slightly empty once I finish working. I decided to join contests about "hot" contemporary matters. I do believe in the importance of talking your truth about what happens everyday; a routine that seems not to touch us but it's making us what we are, at the end of the day. It's just communicating, even not saying a word”.
Alessandro Di SessaB&B I Dieci Mondi, brand new property opened in July 2015, is located near Piazza Napoli, in the Tortona district. It’s the brainchild of two young owners, Paola and Pier, to put together the warmth of a b&b and the comfort of a hotel. The six rooms that compose the b&b are all furnished with elegance and attention to the details, with finishes and materials of the highest quality, to ensure its guests a comfortable stay in a refined and welcoming environment. On April 12th, at 7.30 p.m, the b&b will host an Opening Cocktail on which there will be also the author of the works. Access to the party is by invitation only.
