After his time spent in the Barilla archives, artist Marco Bruzzone developed his conceptual pasta shape. As part of the Liquid Life exhibition (24th Jan - 20th Feb), Marco will present a short talk and a small bite of his work, Acciaio 11 on 13th Februaryfrom 7pm.
ACCIAIO11 considers the radical change of rhythms and habits that workers encountered during the passage from rural life to working in city factories, during the industrial revolution. A worker’s meal suddenly did not consist of elaborate hand-made shapes anymore, but of serially produced objects made by machinery constructed and operated by people unknown to the consumer.
ACCIAO11 is the radical development of this concept. It is a pasta shaped like an i-beam. Pasta is architecture for the mouth, a skeleton of a building than can be covered with different materials. The work is experienced as an edible dish and its framed black and white archive documentation.
