Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Now on view in Milan at the Fondazione Prada are two new exhibitions. “Slight Agitation 2/4: Pamela Rosenkranz”—the second of a four-part series, is curated by the Fondazione Prada Thought Council’s Shumon Basar, Cédric Libert, Elvira Dyangani Ose, and Dieter Roelstraete. Michael Wang’s “Extinct in the Wild,” is now on view in the spae’s Nord gallery.
The exhibition of work by Switzerland-born Rosenkranz explores the aftermath of how physical and biological processes affect art. Her installation Infection sheds light on the fact that about 30% of our world’s population is affected by neuro-active parasites. A large mound of sand, highlighted by a green illuminating light, sits inside the Cisterna’s historic space, infected by synthetic cat pheromones to subconsciously influence the public, activating a biological attraction and repulsion within the viewer.
American artist Wang’s “Extinct in the Wild,” brings together an array of flora and fauna that are no longer found in nature. Rather, they can only be produced by humans now in artificial habitats. The strategies of survival for these plants and animals are examined in three glass and aluminum encasements with artificial light, alongside a selection of photographs. For this exhibition, invites viewers to look deeper at the age of extinction.
“Slight Agitation 2/4: Pamela Rosenkranz” is on view through May 14 and “Extinct in the Wild” is on view through April 9.
