Il Rumore del Tempo
Manufacturer: Charta Art Books
This is the catalog from the Gaetano Pesce retrospetive exhibition at the Trieniale museum in Milan, 2005. The pages of these books are perforated, and the reader is invited to tear along the lines at their pleasure to create a unique work of art.
Gaetano Pesce is an artist, architect and designer, but some would more accurately describe him as an explorer of color and form. Now located in New York City, Pesce has completed an extensive body of work which can be found all over the world. His architectural studies began in his native country at the University of Venice Faculty of Architecture. By living and working in over ten countries, Pesce has developed an international style that uses figurative imagery to communicate feeling. His work is focused on material innovation, uninhibited use of color, and his designs react against the hard-lined “antiseptic” look of modernism.
Pesce’s work is in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Modern Art Museum in Turin and many other institutions worldwide. His furniture was produced by several of the renowned manufacturers including B & B Italia, Knoll, Cassina and Vitra.
