Milano, April 2019 – Art and design form an intrinsic part of Packaging Première, the trade fair dedicated to luxury packaging, which will be held at Fieramilanocity in Milan from 28 to 30 May.
Although Packaging Première’s main objective is to provide a meeting point for designers, manufacturers and international brands that are alert to packaging’s communication potential, it also devotes a significant amount of space to artists who create unique works using an extremely wide range of materials.
The topic chosen for this year’s Art Gallery is Metamorphosis, a theme that emanates not only from the form of the artworks, but from their very essence.
Wood, plastic or glass is transformed into art in the hands of artists who love the material, know it inside out and offer it a second life in a new form. The artists’ sources of inspiration, interpreted in myriad ways, are closely connected to the raw materials used in the packaging presented at Packaging Première, transformed and enhanced through constant research and observation throughout the entire supply chain.
The artists presented in this year’s Art Gallery include:
Agnese Del Gamba: Recycled PET used to create sculptures, jewellery and clothing http://www.agnesedelgamba.it/
Francesca Meana: Paper combined with various materials to inspire creativity http://www.pourquoipaslab.com/
Daniele Papuli: Vinyl, synthetic materials and paper turned into design objects
Alessandro Rametta: Metalworking in metals including copper, steel, bronze and iron, drawing inspiration from the legendary figure of Hephaestus
Simone Crestani: Sculptures created using blown glass
Giorgio Rastelli: Soft and enticing wooden sculptures that transcend the material
