PROGETTO DOMESTICO by VINCENZO DE COTIIS | My happy place would mostly likely not be a place but a space, pulled together by the thoughtful interplay between home and gallery; where a single line, object or furnishing can give you pause, a moment of respite, or act as a catalyst ... and everything is illuminated by design. Any of the works by Vincenzo De Cotiis within four walls would make this said space a reality.
'PROGETTO DOMESTICO IS A PATH THROUGH REINTERPRETED EVERYDAY OBJECTS.
CONTEMPORARY TECHNIQUES AND EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURES SHAPE PROCESSED MATERIALS ASSEMBLED WITH RECYCLED PARTS.
THIS ON-GOING PROJECT FOR AN IMAGINARY HOME OFFERS THE POSSIBILITY TO PERCEIVE THE SIGNS OF EVERYDAY LIFE THROUGH OBJECTS CREATED ACCORDING TO AN INTERPRETATION WHICH TRASCENDS THE LIMITS OF PURE DESIGN OBSESSED WITH THE LINES, BUT RATHER, THE PROPOSED IDEAS COMPOSE A VISION VERGING ON CONTEMPORARY ART.
VISUAL CODES, ARTISTIC OBJECTS AND PROTOTYPES CHARACTERIZED BY MATERIALS WORN AND DEFORMED BY TIME COME TO LIFE AGAIN IN UNEXPECTED SHAPES.
RECYCLED MATERIALS UNDERGO EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURES WITH EMPHASIS ON INDUSTRIAL UNIQUENESS IN WHICH ELEMENTS CONFORM TO THE CONCEPT OF REUSE AND CONTEXT REPLACEMENT.
THE LEITMOTIF IS IN THE APPEARANCE OF SURFACES SUCH THAT THE MANUAL TREATMENT OF TEXTURES MANUALLY ACHIEVED ON DIFFERENT OBJECTS AND MATERIALS (FIBERGLASS, WAX, LEATHER, BRASS AND IRON) CREATES A NEW TACTILE AND VISUAL EXPERIENCE. THE VISUAL ASPECT MERGES WITH THE MATERIAL ITSELF THROUGH UNIQUE PIECES PRODUCED IN STRICTLY LIMITED EDITIONS.'
