To open on Museu da Casa Brasileira, witch inaugurates the exhibition ‘Experimentando Le Corbusier – Contemporary Interpretations of Modernism’ on June 16, curated by Pierre Colnet and Hadrien Lelong, Cremme – Furniture publisher, via Cremme Institute, an association that has as its commitment to work in the social, educational and artistic spheres through the promotion of activities to promote culture, the show permeates the thinking of Le Corbusier beyond the perimeter of the architecture.
The new exhibition presents a reflection on modernism in Brazil and on the work of the Franco-Swiss architect. The intention of the Brazilian artists, designers and architects invited to participate in the exhibition is to keep alive the modern and revolutionary thinking of Le Corbusier. A conversation between the award-winning São Paulo architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha and Catherine Otondo inspires the illustrations of Alexandre Benoit. Notions like symmetry, perspective, movement and composition are approached by the works of artists Carla Chaim, Lucas Simões and Ivan Padovani. Parts of the Cabinet Workshop prepared in 2 partnership with the Leo Institute, which proposed the rereading of modernism through the design of furniture inspired by the works of Le Corbusier. The Campana Brothers complete the body of designers, occupying the garden of the Museum with the Taquara installation.
“In the works on display, we have a challenge to the various disciplines that intersect in the fields of design and architecture, permeated by technical and artistic experimentation. An opportunity to observe the thinning of its increasingly thin frontiers against the world of specializations, “says Giancarlo Latorraca, technical director of MCB. The curators also invited a team of Brazilian offices formed by Aleph Zero, AR Architects, Block Architects, FGMF, Gabriel Ranieri, Pedro Ribeiro, Estudio Guto Requena, Metro Architects Associates, MNMA Studio, Nitsche Architects, Play Architecture, Terra e Tuma and Triptyque Architecture to reflect how today repercusses the modernist process in the national territory and within the work environment itself. The article by the French philosopher Mickaël Labbé, made especially for the show, sustains the work of the architects in the exhibition.
