IN Residence is proud to present “TALISMAN — Contemporary Symbolic Objects” a group exhibition curated by Barbara Brondi and Marco Rainò that includes 46 talismans created for the occasion by 46 international designers, who have all been actively involved in the IN Residence project during the course of its ten editions.
“Conceived as an object that survives its own history and mythology, the talisman can become the icon of the post-global era, simulacrum of an elsewhere that dwells in the ‘here and now’ and can be contaminated in this or any other place; present always and everywhere, this ‘device’ that amplifies meaningful symbolic values has belonged to all places and all times, establishing a profound, instinctive and pre-logical, necessary and indispensable relationship with human beings, often marked by feelings of intense affection — or even devotion — on the part of its owner.”
(From the essay in the catalogue by Barbara Brondi & Marco Rainò )
All the pieces in the exhibition — installed from April 4th to 9th in the splendid setting of Palazzo Clerici — are unique works created for the occasion, and will be auctioned on Saturday 8 April at 3pm in the Salone degli Arazzi.
