In a career spanning fifty years, Gaetano Pesce, architect, artist and designer, guided by a constant drive towards innovation and experimentation, has created public and private projects in the United States, Europe, Latin America and Asia. With a conceptual process described as 'the architectural equivalent of a brainstorm', Pesce is displayed in the permanent collections of the most important museums in the world, including the MoMa, the New York Metropolitan Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Vitra Museum. Born in La Spezia in 1939, Pesce studied architecture at Venice University when he wrote a manifesto defending the right to incoherence in art, the need for change, to be free, and not to repeat oneself. After having lived in Venice, London, Helsinki and Paris, Pesce moved to New York in 1980 to teach at the Pratt Institute and open his studio which to this day he continues to create new works. In Pesce’s production, the borders between art, design and industry become irrelevant because art is also a product, it is the creative reply to the needs of the times we are living in.

About the project

"My work is a reminder of the box where they put us in when we leave life. In this case it was forced open, deformed and demolished by the text it contains."
