Il Pianeta Come Festival feat. Terraforma
08.10. – 08.10.20
“Il Pianeta come Festival” is a new project by Terraforma. Drawing inspiration, and its name, from the iconic series by Ettore Sottsass from 1972, with this project Terraforma emerges from the experience of Villa Arconati to explore new topographies. The terraformation of new landscapes takes place within the research fields that always distinguished the festival: sound, architecture and sustainability. The project aims to reinterpret “Il Pianeta come Festival” through a series of visual, installative and performative interventions.
Starting with Milan on 8 October at Artifact, the project will then be traveling to various cities. The launch event will present the work of the four artists who have been invited to re-interpret the homonymous project by Ettore Sottsass through a series of artworks and a soundscape. The commissioned works presented at Artifact feature architect, writer and Ecocore founder Alessandro Baca, visual artist Natália Trejbalová, the musician and artist TCF and the Milan based sound artist Piezo. The presentation will also feature a special talk by curator and researcher Angela Rui.
