Antonia Jannone Disegni di Architettura presents for the first time the work of Beppe Caturegli and Giovannella Formica: SENSELESSNESS, a series of geometric embroideries made from computer sketched designs, meticulously flat-stitched on white canvas with colored cotton threads.

On show are a sequence of forty-five embroideries, two carpets and a small table with sculpture. Works and furnishings that document the passage of time and its immateriality, translating the theme of weaving from the screen to the loom.

«They are delicate and minute embroideries, whose subjects allude to sighs, to beams of light and optical images, to scents of seawater smells and rainwater, to tufa and sunshine, to the black light of darkness as well as the illivid light of darkness as well as to the livid one of winter. And, above all, to immaterial impulses, impalpable entities»

Beppe Caturegli (1957) and Giovannella Formica (1957-2019) trained in the cultural climate of Radical Architecture in Florence. In 1982 they moved to Milan to collaborate with Ettore Sottsass, the Memphis group and Terrazzo magazine. They opened the studio Caturegli Formica Architetti Associati in 1987, starting a heterogeneous work that ranges from residential and commercial architecture to restoration, from interiors to furniture, from lamps to cutlery, from paintings to ceramics and videos.

Their work has been exhibited in international museums and galleries, including: MET (Metropolitan Museum of Art) Centre Pompidou, Deichtorhallen, Triennale Milano, Mino Ceramic Art Museum, Design Gallery, Nilufar Gallery, Assab One.
