Mīror. The Ladies' Room and textiles by female artists of the twentieth century

From the 4th to the 14th of April BUILDING presents Miror, a project by the Design Collective The Ladies’ Room - Ilaria Bianchi, Agustina Bottoni, Astrid Luglio, Sara Ricciardi - designed for the spaces of the Gallery Moshe Tabibnia and realized in collaboration with the Moshe Tabibnia Research Centre.

Mīror  is an installation of three reflective sculptures based on a study of image, optical illusions and altered perceptions. Mīrorexplores the specific moment in which one is captivated by a form, a detail, a reflection or one's own image.

Mīror  is a new project that dialogues with a selection of textile works created by various twentieth century female artists, chosen by The Ladies’ Room in collaboration with the Moshe Tabibnia Study Center. Following the publication Intrecci del Novecento. Tapestries and carpets by Italian artists and manufacturers,and the exhibition of the same name staged at the Triennale di Milano (October 2017), the Gallery Moshe Tabibnia now presents some of the most significant twentieth century works in its collection.
Reflected in the mirrors designed by The Ladies’ Room, visitors will be able to admire the colorful swirls of the refined French tapestries by Sonia Delaunay, the rugs by Yvonne Fourgeaud, the vibrant patterns of the carpets by Nathalie Du Pasquier, the Futurist fabric inlays by Beatrice Santiccioli and the poetic small-scale compositions of Niki Berlinguer and Anna Maria Del Drago.
