Milan’s Armada art space is bringing in a site-specific project developed by AIRBNB Pavilion titled Schöner Wohnen and running from March 3 to 29.
With AIRBNB Pavilion acting as interior designers, the furniture and decoration borrowed from members of Armada gets recomposed into a single installation exploring the blurred lines in how these objects exist – as familiar home furnishings and as the fetishized commodities of Pinterest boards and Instagram feeds.
The press release for the exhibition writes: “As the contemporary furniture store takes off the image of the home and domestic environments increasingly assume the vestiges of Pinterested boards in space, the status of our objects as the (biographical) signifiers of our dwelling selves is ever more at threat.”
See the Armada exhibition page for details. **
Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
