GIVING FORM TO PRECARIOUSNESS, In Design of the Unfinished. A New Way of Designing Leftovers Regeneration, Luciano Crespi (Ed.), 2021

 

The architectural “leftovers” that distinguish the current urban landscape also constitute a focus for artistic research, which is committed to measuring itself with the concepts of temporariness and precariousness, intended as constitutive elements of contemporary culture. Throughout the look for a new paradigm inspired by the ethics of the wanderer, the relationship with architectural “leftovers” can go beyond a static vision of their recovery as containers. In fact, we can look at them thinking about light, mobile and non-definitive interventions. The attempt is to “negotiate” with the space in order to “giving form to precariousness”. This way, the artistic interventions would not only rethink the status of work of art, but they would also redefine the identity of the places for cultural, nomadic and other new uses. The chapter analyses these issues by examining two case histories: the exhibitions of Dialogos project ( at AssabOne, a former printshop in Milan, and at VitrínaDeniska a former shop-window in Olomouc in the Czech Republic) and Sopra-Sotto (a former supermarket in Sesto Calende, in Italy).
