Pitti Uomo, the prestigious men’s fashion fair, is known for its unconventional display formats, notably the creative presentation of clothing and accessories, design pieces and artworks presented inside shipping containers. This season the fair invites visitors to explore the Pitti ‘Surprise Box’ - each box immerses the visitor into a different and thought provoking environment, bringing multiple dimensions to their encounter with design and fashion.
Among the Pitti Boxes is the Infinity Box, a special video art gallery and sensory experience that aims to immerse visitors of Pitti Uomo 95 into intriguing new worlds. Curated by Dan Mauger, founder of online arts platform Visual Fodder, the Infinity Box offers a highly visual, highly emotive experience through a selection of contributions by video artists from the international creative scene.
Amongst the artists selected, Luigi Honorat will be showcasing 6 works from his Intangible series. Honorat uses the principles of sculpture to inform his practice in computer graphics, creating a balance between the two media. By exploring the relationship between sculpture and computer graphics Honorat questions distinctions between real and virtual, matter and data. On 10 January Honorat launches a collection of works on Sedition - to join the launch, follow the artist’s profile.
The artists and designers exhibiting in the Infinity Box are Honorat, Flavio Carvalho, Frank Guzzone, Steven Baltay, Maurice Fransen, Bran Cuzi, Rémi Cabarrou, Philip Lück, Alessio De Vecchi, Arben Vllasliu, Joe Ryba and Mark Malta.
Pitti Uomo 95 is open from 8 to 11 January at Fortezza Da Basso, Viale Filippo Strozzi 1, Florence.
