|Plate EVE from 1950 in a 2019 edition Plate Adamo|
For me its an honor to be invited to the presslunch at Artipelag to see
Fornasetti Inside out Outside In.
To arrive to Artipelag and listen to Director Bo Nilsson explain the set up with Barnaba Fornasetti present and see the entire fantastic exhibit and then be treated to lunch overlooking the Stockholm archipelago concluding with a
desert is just heavenly to me.
|Fornasetti La venditrice di farfalle / The butterfly sales girl|
We not only get to see rare gems like this La vendritrice di farfalle from 1938 that clearly shows how talented Piero Fornasetti is already at the age of twenty-five.
Oldest son Piero was born in Milano 1913 och was expected to become an accountant and work in the family business.
At home he painted both walls and ceilings with such an artistic talent that he should have been considered a wonder child.
|When I see this plate with the illustration of a man laying on the ground spinning 7 female face plates I think a big source of inspiration for Piero Fornasetti is the battle of the sexes or/and the non-binary defined thinking of 2019.|
The Milanese Piero Fornasetti is said to have been very familiar with the city's dual identity as a modern financial center and as city with a historic presence.
This contradiction between modernity and tradition is understood to have provided the the main source of inspiration for his art.
Personally I think Piero Fornasetti like many in todays society don't identify with any gender. Some peoples gender changes over time. People who's gender is not male or female use many different terms to describe themselves, with non-binary being one of the most common.
Piero created so many versions of this plate theme that it seems to be a never ending story.
Dive into this video and have a
Fornasetti plate overdose.
Yes. There is more!
Fornasetti Inside Out Outside In at
Yep. More plates. No wonder that my thought of Fornasetti was that I liked the plates but what else was there. Not knowing all of the areas Fornasetti conquered. He began painting but expanded to drawing, printing, design, interior, architecture, furniture design and commercial entrepreneurship always employing a modern approach.
The framing of the
is the most attractive I have seen at Artipelag. The colors, the interiors chosen and the layout is a pure joy to experience.
Gio Ponti and Fornasetti was a odd combo. Ponti had a long career as a architect and the 20 year younger multi talanted Fornasetti must have fascinated him. They worked together under a long period and this bent glass cabinet by Ponti with drawings of Fornasetti is a masterpiece from 1940 showing how well the two different styles of these two men work together.
|Stanza Metafisica are 32 pieces of print on paper.|
The Stanza Metafisica room divider is my own favorite and was owned by Sting for many years.
The interest for metaphysics is again a hot topic just like Fornasetti found interesting 1955 the same Q are expressed 2019.
Metaphysics studies questions related to what it is for something to exist and what types of existence there are.

My own favorite cupboard by Ponti+Fornasetti
Above is the tasty Fornasetti dedicated desert and below the Fornasetti wallpaper that covers the walls and as you see even the desert.
|If you like me take a liking to the Fornasetti wallpaper you see all over the exhibit at Artpelag you find it at Cole&son|
See the Fornastti Inside out Outside in exhibit as soon as you can. Next time I see it. I will take the boat out to Artipelag from Sthlm city center and then spend the whole day there.
