Vortex by Remy Uno for Pucci

French-born, Berlin-based artist Remy Uno is the creator of a spectacular installation for the Emilio Pucci showroom in Milan, housed in stately 16th-century Palazzo Recalcati.

Vortex is a kaleidoscopic work inspired by one of the most emblematic patterns of Pucci’s Resort Pre-Spring 2017 collection, fashioned by the brand’s creative director Massimo Giorgetti. A painting of a female figure appears, anamorphically split into sections, on mirrors suspended at various levels and on different planes, apparently floating over a purple rug.

Fashion meets art in a space framed by a prism of fluorescent lights, where the painting interacts with the observer and with the baroque architecture of the room.

Seen head-on, the image is whole, almost flat. But move only slightly to either side and it fragments, becoming abstract and pluridimensional, the parts indistinguishable from their reflections.

This and more of the latest Milanese art-and-design phenomena are included in the Milan Experience itineraries. Here are our contacts.
