ULTRABODY
BY BEPPE FINESSI
FOR CORRAINI EDIZIONI
A constantly recurrent theme in the history of art and a favorite subject of contemporary creativity, the body is also the central subject of Ultrabody, 208 works between art and design, a large and original exhibition and research project that encompasses a variety of disciplines and modes of expression. The first step of the project - the exhibition held at the Castello Sforzesco in Milan between April and June 2012 - staged an exciting journey of discovery, unpublished works and testimonies belonging to different worlds, although interrelated: from art to industrial design, from fashion to architecture, from art to furniture. The event collected and analyzed the polyhedral forms of relationships between body and space, watching people, things and the environments around them: 208 different types of "body" emerged from this, from the most obvious to the most enigmatic and experimental, and which have created a kind of updated dictionary of authors / works / keywords for the design and cultural period of the moment. This process has resulted in a critical catalogue, structured around a system of analytical sheets: one for each of the 208 works on display in the exhibition. The overall graphic design has made use of the work of Leonardo Sonnoli, who has designed a new font for the occasion inspired by the nature of the topic being examined.
