Mind the gap
Mutina and Nathalie Du Pasquier renovates their collaboration with a new project for the Dialogue series: Mind the gap, a permanent installation exclusively realised by the artist for Vittoria subway station in Brescia, featuring Mattonelle Margherita.
Mind the gap redefines the fruition of the space through original compositions of shapes and colours, obtained by using the ceramic elements of the collection. The installation invites all the passengers who encounter it in their everyday life to change perspective and be open to new levels of experience, transforming the entrance of the subway into an “other” space that fluctuates between figuration and abstraction.
Nathalie Du Pasquier works with ceramics starting from the simplicity and functionality of the material, exploring the infinite possible applications thanks to the collaboration with Mutina, that supported her in the development of the installation. The modules of Mattonelle Margherita have been used to transform the space, shaping it with patterns and colours: in this way ceramic becomes an element for architectural construction, defining a new unexpected geometric landscape.
Mind the gap is part of SUBBRIXIA, a journey through the visions of contemporary art that winds it way underground in the 17 stations of the Brescia subway.
