The Galleria Antonia Jannone in Milan is inaugurating today an exhibition created in collaboration with design students from the Scuola di Design from Politecnico di Milano. Called “In the Third Paradise“, the exhibition displays the student’s visions of a futuristic urban landscape from an immaginative, unprejudiced point of view.
The display is formed by the superimposition of fifteen of the student’s designs, drawings and architectural models – the result is a collective landscape both urban and natural, formed by “Men, animals, plants, unknown matter, orchards and videogames, secret gardens and molten metals, kennels and rocks, gyms, insects, feathers and even rooms to make love“.
The display in Galeria Jannone also comprises 150 postcards designed by the students to represent different images of the imagined city, accompanied by small text fragments that tell its story in a different way, changing with every viewer.
The exhibition takes inspiration from Michelangelo Pistoletto’s work by the same name, as well as by a popular song by Italian group Subsonica. It will be open until Thursday, July 23rd.
The exhibition is curated by Angela Rui , Francesco Dondina Piero and Francesco Pozzi, Anna Paola Buonanno and Domenico Rescigno with the collaboration of Paolo Padua Lab Allestimenti, from Politecnico di Milano.
