Fondazione
Prada is currently hosting Ex Limbo, an exhibition by Rotor – a collective of
artists from Brussels, acclaimed for the design of the Belgian
pavilion at the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale. Tristan Boniver tells me about how
the space of the Fondazione, and its significance as an exhibition space for
art and fashion, inspired them to use the pieces that worked as a back-drop for
the fashion shows in the last decades, all of which came from a warehouse in
southern Milan. Some of the pieces had been reused several times, but talking
with Mrs Prada, the artists realised that these elements were not merely props
for shows but part of a bigger discourse that merges visual art and fashion.
Hence the idea of giving a second lease of life to structures that have
supported Mrs Prada’s creations, but that have never had a life of their own.
