“Ossimori” is a collection of one-of-a-kind pieces, a study of materials, sparse sculptural compositions that contrast sparse and monochromatic objects and materials, like chalk and marble. Their different shades of white that can take different meanings, and the objects propose an openendedness that can be read in different ways: white like an archeological discovery, white like a white cube, white like minimalism, and, as they suggest, white as the blank metaphor of a lost dimension. The word ossimori means “oxymoron” in Italian, but also suggests a connection to osso, or bone, constituting a subtle play on words. As Silvana Annichiarico, director of the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, described the assemblages, “each one has its own dual/hybrid nature, each contains its exact opposite, its own negation”: hard and soft, fragile and solid, regular and irregular, discarded and recycled.
