HOME SWEET HOME

An environment by Alessandra Roveda
Angela Missoni continues on her quest for what appears to be an artistic empathy, as well as a creative support and interaction focused on material and colour.

Words by Mariuccia Casadio

She has entrusted the Missoni space in via Solferino to the visionary Alessandra Roveda, who, with her loveof covering furnishings and objects from the past in colourful woollen threads, has created a fantastic environment within the space.

Specifically for this occasion, Alessandra Roveda has conceived a pervasive atmosphere with a magical fairy-tale interior completely enveloped in multicoloured knits; breathing life into one of her most spectacular, demanding and ambitious bodies of work yet.

The creation of Alessandra Roveda is an extraordinary example of art and craftsmanship, allowing her to reinterpret and reinvent the space, as well as the textures and furnishings, and transform the habitat into an inviting and exhilarating experience of sensuality, colour and softness, while casting the knitted materials as the sole protagonists.

 

She refashions crochets into fascinating and enveloping garments of things; a trait-d’union between the past and the future. Everyday objects of affection and furniture from the past take on evocative appearances that are, at the same time, alien, unexpected and unique as sofas, beds, armchairs, books, shelves, pendulum clocks and many other items assume new, unrecognisable vestments.

 

Alessandra Roveda’s completely-manual artistic process speaks to the Missoni language with its continual articulation of colourful threads and crochet stitches that come together to create a singular pictorial landscape of their own making.

A world in which reality becomes a fairytale and imaginatively surreal and playful presences appear and encourage intimate observances and digressions from one’s self, all within the sphere of one’s personal recollections.
