A whiff of nature, a poetical work by thirty-year-old Lorenzo Mariani, known as l'orMa, fascinated the Jury, who were unanimous in awarding him the tenth edition of the Premio Euromobil Under 30, assigned at Artefiera Bologna.
The title of this original work is Adam and Eve, 2016.
It was presented by Galleria Spazio Testoni, Bologna.
The work has been purchased by the Euromobil Collection and will feature in an extensive exhibition that Gruppo Euromobil is planning in an important Italian venue.
The jury, which comprised expert art collectors Gaspare, Antonio, Fiorenzo and Giancarlo Lucchetta, proprietors of Gruppo Euromobil, Claudio Spadoni and Giorgio Verzotti, artistic directors of Arte Fiera, Aldo Colonetti, design critic and Cleto Munari, designer; secretary to the Jury: Roberto Gobbo, was coordinated by Beatrice Buscaroli, who states: “this work by a young Milanese artist, used to contaminating past and present, memory and nature in his art, reveals a concept treated with extreme elegance which at the same time exalts its natural aspect. This mix of different influences and cultures is the origin of the strongly evocative air that expresses a sense of mystery, almost encouraging a delicate query: is it the work of a human or nature?”
