Natura Morta
Private Apartment Salone del Mobile 2011. NATURA MORTA, the Italian term for “still life”, literally translates as “dead nature”. The four outsized still lifes showcased in this provocative exhibition were composed from an abstract collection of handmade and found objects designed to celebrate the darker side of the natural world. Adding to the air of the subversive, Natura Morta was held in a private Milanese apartment – the Era Studio Apartment Gallery – where Faye Toogood launched her second collection of objects: Assemblage 2.
