WE SEEDS by Mirta Morigi
IT TAKES A FLOWER ... and more by Enrico Negrini
Inauguration April the 1th 2017 from 16,30
with the presence of the authors
From April 1 at Creativity Oggetti, blooms spring.
Seeds, flowers and insects are the absolute protagonists of the new works of Mirta Morigi and Enrico Negrini.
New creations that celebrate the origin and life, the fruits of the earth, as a source of vital nutrients and energy to the planet.
A visual nourishment that comes as sculptures full of "natural".
"Seed Germination Humus energy for life"
This is the inspiration for the author's artifacts from Faenza Mirta Morigi present for many years in the Creativity collections.
Seeds, objects to touch with eyes closed, to perceive tactile sensations and kept energy.
Even the works of Enrico Negrini enter fully into this emotional wave, where human feelings grasp what nature provides.
For his wonderful sculpted furniture he chooses real woods in which he works sharply and gracefully to best enhance the natural features of the materials.
Mirta brings to Creativity Oggetti a consolidated collaboration with Enrico who, as they say, is bearing fruit ...
Visitors are greeted by an oversized garden. Seeds, tactile sculptures, flowers and insects as iron pieces of furniture and a table-sculpture, a playful reference to the verses of Sergio Endrigo
"To make a table, it takes wood.
To make wood, it takes a tree.
To make a tree, it takes a seed.
To make a seed, it takes a fruit.
To make a fruit, it takes a flower.
It takes a flower, it takes a flower.
To make a table, it takes a flower"
Born in Faenza, after attending the Art Institute of Ceramic G. Ballardini, and after developing her skills as apprentice, then member, and finally as a teacher in different ateliers (botteghe), in 1973 Mirta Morigi opened her own, situated in the yard of the historical Palazzo Barbavara, in the centre of town.
In these last thirty years of swarming activity, the Renaissance structure of the Bottega Morigi has always been a noble place that has hosted "intelligence in the hands". Her ceramics has always represented, having been influenced by the teachings of her most illustrious guest Sir Ernst Gombrich, a happy synthesis between past and future: not a case of imitation, but of emulation of the art of the ancient makers of majolica.
Morigi's sensibility and meticulous attention to the cultivation of a project has given her the ability to bring a cross section of experiences to her craft, and to transform it into a breeding ground for new and different ideas, a workshop open to the interdisciplinary contributions brought by architects, artists, designers, poets and musicians.
Her aptitude for the critical examination regarding project design, and her ability to mold it into a final product, renders the Bottega Morigi a European model to today’s art ateliers. This new "aesthetic factory" churns out objects always characterized by their dignity and material garb, formal grace; without ever giving up her typical "lightheartedness" and conceptual irony. A production that is continually being enriched through the study of new collections, establishing ceramics as a specific "popular and illustrious" language, a border-line genre between sophistica
ENRICO NEGRINI-LINEA SEBASTIANO
Enrico Sebastiano Negrini born in '67 in Conselice near Ravenna.
A Conselice follows his father's footsteps already craftsman in the art of iron and construction of stoves and in 1986 he opened his own workshop where materials such as iron, steel, brass, wood, take the forms of tables, dressers, chairs ... collected in "Sebastian Line."
In addition to working with private bespoke furniture, begins collaborations with architects, interior designers. Here pure creativity where precious woods such as cedar of Lebanon or oak trees, combine the hand-finished iron with prestigious treatments.
The always special creations led him to participate in solo and group exhibitions of art-crafts with specific themes and content for each of these.
Today it is proposed with the theme of flowers and insects in iron: Childhood Memories.
