Museum house Remo Brindisi Lido di Spina, Comacchio (Fe) Inauguration Sleipnir Argus
In honor of the 40th anniversary of its opening (1973),the Remo Brindisi House Museum at Lido di Spina will host an artistic event of considerable importance for the summer of 2013.
From 15 to 20 July 2013, in a specially designed space in the garden of the Casa Museo Remo Brindisi, Italian-Swedish artist and architect Duilio Forte will create one of his special wooden installations. The work will be part of the Sleipnir series composed of 27 installations created from 2008 to 2013.
Duilio Forte carries out an artistic research that combines sculpture and architecture, creating usable monumental sculptures or joining furnitures and houses in the form of sculpture. A strong bond with nature, a romantic and anticlassical spirit characterizes his work. His way of designing is organic as a spontaneous growth of structures.
The relationship with nature is magical and echoes an ancient animist spirit linked to Nordic mythology from which descends the call to Sleipnir - Odin's horse. His architectures and sculptures are found among the trees or among the reflections of mirrors of water and lagoons.
For characteristics linked to the particularity of the Remo Brindisi Museum House, the structure can be inhabited using it as a kiosk for outdoor use.
Designed in Milan by AtelierFORTE then built and assembled at Lido di Spina with a workshop ipativo the sculpture designed by Duilio Forte will come to connote as a prototype of lightweight, removable and eco-friendly structure which could be inspired in different versions for the constructions by the sea, on the canals or in the valley.
The art of Duilio Forte, linked to the use of traditional materials and forms, can be considered to be fully in tune with the peculiar characteristics of the lagoon territory and with the seasonality of tourist activities.
Thanks to this project, the municipal administration of Comacchio intends to deliver a virtuous example of building to the territory, addressing for technical interest the promotion and communication of this initiative to builders, architects, tour operators and for artistic relevance to the many tourists present on the coast.
Sleipnir Argus owes its name to the Greek ship Argus. Mythology tells us that the ancient city of Spina, very flourishing in Etruscan times, was founded by the descendants of the Argonauts, the 50 Greek heroes travelling on the ship.
