PORTO CERVO.- Gallery FUMI
is presenting a Pop-Up exhibition in Porto Cervo, celebrating the gallery's longstanding relationship with the Sardinian destination. The show is being held at The Supermarket, a four storey concept space that encapsulates the cutting-edge nature of contemporary design and high-end retail in the exclusive Promenade du Port location.
Set against the spectacular backdrop of the seaside scenery, the show marks a significant first time collaboration with Athens-based design studio Voukenas Petrides. Driven by the desire to test the limits of form and function, the works in the exhibition, belonging to their new Gypsum series (2018), are striking in their compositional minimalism, informed by the designers' fascination with architecture, materiality and space.
The selection is further punctuated by an ambitious suite of glass artworks by German artist Josepha Gasch-Muche. The subject of internationally acclaimed museum exhibitions, most recently Glasstress at 57th Venice Biennale in 2017, Gasch-Muche creates visually arresting works, which, unparalleled in execution, ignite a dramatic interplay of light and shadow.
Displayed within an elegantly curated setting, other standout works include projects by atelier lachaert dhanis, Glithero, Federico Uribe, Francesco Perini, Johannes Nagel, Lara Bohinc, Lukas Wegwerth, Rowan Mersh, Sam Orlando Miller and Study O Portable.
