Park Associati are pleased to host in their practice’s premises the solo exhibition of Thomas Berra, opening on the occasion of the beginning of the Milano Fall Design Week.
Inspired by family photographs, the artist tells the love story of Franco and Renata, his uncle and aunt. This very personal story is also a reflection of an era, the long Italian post-war period that was scarred by events that left a mark and influenced the recent past. Based on the Grand Hotel-style photo-novels, the artist created a picture tale printing it in around 1000 copies. The work is meant to be shown on a support reminiscent of the small kiosks that used to sell newspapers in those years. The artist asked Park Associati to design the newsstand on which the copies of the photo-novel are to be affixed.
