In April, for Milan Design Week 2016, Elle Décor Italia presents Soft Home, Interiors and Digital Experience, an interactive installation at Palazzo Bovara in collaboration with H-ART and UdA Architetti. Sedition is delighted to present a display of curated works by acclaimed artists throughout the exhibition, which explores the future of the home.
During Soft Home, the work of fifteen Sedition artists will be displayed in different locations throughout the interactive exhibition space. Visitors can discover work by renowned artists including Brian Alfred, Mat Collishaw, Donata Wenders, Jia, Mark Dorf, Quayola and others in experimental home settings throughout Palazzo Bovara. The curated works follow themes including Synthetic Landscape, Time, Still Life and Human Nature.
The home is a familiar, comfortable and intimate space, in which we come into contact with an array of objects and devices which help us to carry out day-to-day actions. How could this space change in the future? In what ways are designers, makers and programmers working to change the domestic space now? Soft Home examines how of objects and arrangements within the home are being changed and how these changes can adapt and enhance our actions, creating the possibility for different kinds of interaction in our home environments.
Visitors to Soft Home will be able to experience new designs, concepts and softwares in an interactive environment which simulates how advancements in digital media can work with domestic architecture and design. The exhibition is arranged according to themes related to contemporary living; videos, active fact-finding experiences, a dedicated Tumblr site and the interactive installations themselves provide a variety of ways to engage with and experience the work on display.
Sedition actively works at the intersection of design and connectivity, exploring new avenues through which creative innovations and digital communication channels can come together and bringing the concept of the exhibition into new online and IRL (in real life) spaces. We are delighted to be contributing to the Soft Home conversation. This is an opportunity for design lovers to experience art differently; through different styles of distribution, scales and styles of display.
Soft Home, Interiors and Digital Experience takes place from 11-24 April at Palazzo Bovara, Corso Venezia, 51, 20129 Milan, Italy. Entrance to the exhibition is free of charge.
