Artist Francesco Vezzoli made an installation about the role of television in Italy (RAI) in the 1970s. Rai is Italy’s national broadcasting company, and was the number one mass communication form in the seventies. Mr Vezzoli shows that this was groundbreaking tv, or at least television in Italy was showing how the seventies were, historically seen, an important decade. We, at Mimi Berlin, took a stroll through this impressive exhibition and filmed it for yous….’cause just images aren’t enough to visually explain what this installation is about. But, as always when it comes to art exhibitions, you have to see it for yourself. And if you are interested in the, almost extinct, medium of television you should certainly visit this exhibition.
inges idee Personal Absurdities: Hans Hemmert’s Level
Level by Hans Hemmert (1997, Styrodur/Rubber/Velcro, variable dimensions) is an installation, or performance if you will, in which the visitor could, according to his or her lenght, choose the suitable shoe-height in order to get a 2 meters body height. FUN! #wecanallbebasketballplayers
inges idee are the artists Hans Hemmert, Axel Lieber, Thomas A. Schmidt und Georg Zey, who have worked jointly on projects in public space since the group was founded in Berlin in 1992. Along with works carried out in the group, all members are active in their own individual artistic practice. In 1997 Hans Hemmert created “Level” (Styrodur/Rubber/Velcro, variable dimensions) which was shown at the exhibition “Personal Absurdities” at Galerie Gebauer Berlin 1997 (credits; http://ingesidee.de/page.php?pgid=74&lang=en)(images via core77.com)
Und thahanks Mr P van O for making us notice this work.
We, at Mimi Berlin, didn’t attend the Salone del Mobile 2017 this year because we missed our flight. But that you now by now, if you follow our blog….. Well, this week we will be posting about venues, designs and other places we feel we really missed out on. Being the Fashion Angels that we are we feel sorry for missing Marni‘s Playland installation. Luckily there are lot’s of pictures, gif’s and what have you not, on the interweb. And Marni also created a mini-market online for us to buy stuff from. Like the bag pictured below; which is actually a ‘Maxi geometric vase holder’ or a “trapeze-shaped-PVC- Artefact-product-with-possible-mperfections”; LOL!

“On the occasion of Milan 2017 Salone del Mobile, Marni will be transforming its space at Viale Umbria 42 into one big playground: MARNI PLAYLAND.
Reflecting on the concept of play, Marni invites the public to forget predefined rules and structures and interact with the surrounding space and the intriguing elements it contains. The MARNI PLAYLAND is a stretch of sand which is the perfect backdrop for a series of extraordinary objects and furniture sculptures that have cast practicality aside to embrace their playful side, leaving them open to interpretation.” (read more marni.com)

“Hans-Peter Feldmann (born 1941 in Düsseldorf) is a German visual artist. Feldmann’s approach to art-making is one of collecting, ordering and re-presenting.” In this case Mr Feldmann has been lining up colorful high heeld shoes (Pumps). Nice! N’est pas?
