Marni celebrates anniversary with Venice Biennale exhibition
In 2014, Marni celebrated its 20th birthday with a series of events throughout the year, which is coming to an end at the Venice Biennale. Under the name “Marni Prisma”, the fashion house organised several interactive happenings like a Flower Market in Milan, a Roof Market in Hong Kong and a Blossom Market in Tokyo, all celebrating nature, colour, and vitality. Being communal rather than fashion- or art-focused in nature, these projects are now culminating in the show “Becoming Marni”. Curated by architect Stefano Rabolli and supervised by creative director Carolina Castiglioni, the exhibition features 100 wooden sculptures by Brazilian artist Véio.
As a self-taught man, Véio uses logs and branches found on riverbanks, then carves and paints them to unveil a human or animal character, based on the piece’s natural shape. His mechanism of transforming pure yet unpredictable forms with the use of vivid colours is highly compatible with Marni’s design aesthetics. The fashion house thus found its ideal artistic soulmate for the climax of its anniversary year. The show is on at the abbey of San Gregorio in Venice, until the closing of the Biennale on the 22th of November 2015.
