A Metaphysical Interior

Artists' Books

A Metaphysical Interior is the title of the book that was published on a proposal from Luca Lo Pinto during the exhibition “D’après Giorgio”, which was held at the Fondazione Giorgio e Isa de Chirico from 27th January 2012 to 27th January 2013. Housed in the House Museum at 31 Piazza di Spagna in Rome, the exhibition brought together works by the following artists: Alek O., Darren Bader, Nina Beier, Carola Bonfili, Benny Chirico, Patrizio Di Massimo, Giulio Frigo, Julia Frommel, Martino Gamper, Paul Armand Gette, Nicolas Hatfull, Isola & Norzi, Tobias Madison & Kaspar Mueller, Marcello Maloberti, Carlo Mollino, Momus, Olaf Nicolai, Henrik Olesen, Nicola Pecoraro, Emilio Prini, Dan Rees, Alexandre Singh, John Stezaker, Luca Trevisani, Luca Vitone, and Raphael Zarka. The book presents the result of a correspondence protocol suggested by Izet Sheshivari at the curator’s invitation. After receiving and printing the 214 illustrations sent by the artist, Luca Lo Pinto arranged the pictures within the museum space, and documented them in situ. Featuring captions, the book provides “augmented” perspectives from a visit of Giorgio de Chirico’s flat. Page after page, the book generates an ever-changing relationship between the meaning of a flat interior design and the remote discovery of works by contemporary artists.
