Artvisor’s founder Piero Tomassoni writes about “Mollino/Insides”, presented by Collezione Maramotti in collaboration with Museo Casa Mollino. The exhibition brings together paintings by Enoc Perez and photographs by Brigitte Schindler and Carlo Mollino.
No longer just a place to study the life and work of Carlo Mollino, the house that bears his name in Turin has for some years exercised a growing fascination on new generations of artists and scholars alike, due to the unusual, seductive atmosphere of its rooms. “Mollino/Insides” celebrates this house and its architect, setting Mollino’s photographs aside works by Perez and Schindler. Tomassoni observes the artistic freedom Mollino enjoys in his approach to photography, stating how the artist’s experimentation is reflective of his times.
The review finely traces the links between the three artists, prompting consideration towards the objectification of Casa Mollino in Schindler’s photographs. Perez credits the mysterious house for his interest in interior painting, switching his attention from outside to inside buildings. Tomassoni leaves us with a fitting reflection upon the increasing concentration towards interior painting, and the domestic enclosure currently being experienced worldwide. A charming introduction, providing an original insight into the artistic echoes of Casa Mollino.
