“The entire idea of Creativity affects each individual identity who lives in this planet”.

This is the meaning of making Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Living in Art.

It is a question of the salvation of our Souls. This is our goal when we get to work supporting artists and guarding trees.

OLIO D’ARTISTA is a project conceived by THE POOL NYC Gallery with Giuseppe Stampone, inspired by Joseph Beuys’ Piantagione Paradise.
Always in defense of Nature: defense of Man, Human Values and Creativity.

The label was specially designed by Giuseppe Stampone.

November 2020, Villa Pazzi, Pian de’ Giullari, Firenze

Hand picked Olives; Cold Extraction Extra Virigin Olive Oil.

Olives’ Variety: Moraiolo, Leccino, Frantoio

100% Made In Tuscany

Stampone, an international renowned artist from Abruzzo (his work is in important private collections and museums such as TATE, London, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Houston, MAXXI, Rome, GAMeC, Bergamo) has always been particularly interested in the environment and always admired Beuys’ work. The artist cannot forget the famous abruzzese PARADISE PLANTATION also known as Defence of Nature by German Artist.

Defence of Nature, a project the German Master carried out in Italy in the last 15 years of his life thanks to the solid collaboration of Lucrezia De Domizio and the photographic lens of her husband Buby Durini first took place in the early 1970s when Joseph Beuys began to cultivate a fifteen-hectare plot of land in Bolognano (Abruzzo) destined to the planting of 7,000 bushes and trees that risked extinction: the result was the Piantagione Paradise, oParadise Plantation. On May 13, 1984, Beuys plants the first Italian oak in the Plantation, right in front of his studio: it is the beginning of the discussion “Defence of Nature,” the veritable emblem of this ambitious Abruzzese project. The Defence of Nature should be understood not just in an ecological sense; actually and more importantly it should be read in terms of its anthropological meaning: defence of man, creativity and human values, topics, more than ever before, of great interest today.

Among the planted trees there were of course olive trees, so much loved by the artist, who used them in several projects, such as Olivestone (1984).

Beuys used oil and stones related to the oil process to make artworks.

This Art Process is related to Creativity and Humanity. Humanity is interpreted in its etymology (comes from the Latin word humilitas, a noun related to the adjective humilis, which may be translated as “from the earth”, since it derives from humus (earth). This action is still very inspiring for us, especially in this moment when Nature is an even more important drive and Art is the access key to the world and the Future.

We wanted to create a new special Organic Product/Artwork made of Art and Humus.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is crucial in Italy as Art is.

This is why we combined them both and we conceived OLIO D’ARTISTA.

ARCHILEO

a cura di Giacinto Di Pietrantonio

SPECIAL PREVIEW: 28 Settembre dalle 12 alle 21

29 Settembre-10 Ottobre

In Occasione di Milano Design City 2020, THE POOL NYC è entusiasta di presentare fisicamente e virtualmente ARCHILEO, l’unica carriola che è anche una poltrona e che vi farà essere felici.

“Datemi un punto d’appoggio e vi solleverò il mondo” diceva il filosofo fisico matematico ARCHImede (288 – 212 a.C.), intendendo per mondo la Terra tutta sollevabile attraverso lo strumento della leva, mentre circa 1700 anni dopo guardando al cielo GaliLEO (1564 – 1642), pur esso filosofo, astronomo e matematico, aggiungeva: “Eppur si muove!”, parlando della Terra non più ferma, ma in movimento intorno al sole. Un secolo prima LEOnardo ideava e progettava meccanismi di mobilità di ogni genere, utilizzati allora e nei secoli successivi.

Il duo designer OVO (Maurizio Orrico – Enrica Vulcano) ha unito queste tre verità filosofico-scientifico-artistiche per realizzare una paradossale seduta mobile chiamata ARCHILEO.
Partendo dalla carriola, uno dei primi, se non addirittura il primo veicolo meccanico, OVO alla Marcel Duchamp o alla Achille Castiglioni, o alla Bruno Munari, ha progettato una seduta che può anche essere agevolmente mossa.
Con un semplice gesto di rifunzionalizzazione OVO ha trasformato un mezzo di trasporto di cose in una poltrona che all’occorrenza può essere spostata anche con la persona seduta.

 
 Così, “se da Cosa nasce Cosa” come diceva Bruno Munari, qui la cosa carriola diventa cosa poltrona ARCHILEO, che promette una seduta come viaggio dell’abitare. Lo stare seduto può qui diventare anche un gioco che mette insieme infanzia e vita adulta: movimento e stasi. Allora la poltrona carriola ARCHILEO diviene anche madeleine proustiana che ci riporta alla nostra infanzia, l’età in cui tutto è gioco e dove anche uno strumento di lavoro viene usato dai bambini come mezzo ludico.
A questo punto diventa evidente che stare seduti in ARCHILEO ci rilassa e diverte allo stesso tempo, rendendoci felici di riposare e consapevoli di poterci spostare.
Dulcis in fundo ci piace sottolineare come questa poltrona rappresenti una gioiosa novità ispirata anche dal logo OVO, dove la O è la ruota, la V il braccio-leva e l’altra O la cassa: O<O.
Orsù, se anche la poltrona si solleva e muove, sentitevi anche voi sollevati e correte a provarla.

I rivestimenti di ARCHILEO sono stati forniti dalla Maison ZILLI-France.

THE POOL NYC ANNOUNCES 

THE RECENT ACQUISITION OF

GIUSEPPE STAMPONE’S WORK  by
THE MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, HOUSTON

Houston, December 11th 2019

We are very proud to announce the recent acquisition of Giuseppe Stampone’s work Architecture of Intelligence by THE MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, HOUSTON.
Stampone’s main themes research are pedagogical activities as a way to formalize artworks, the connection with art history, and the relationship with other artists. Stampone explores these three subject matters, overlapping them and always posing new questions about the role of the artist in the contemporary world.

The artist’s recent production focuses on the reinterpretation of masterpieces from European Art History: just like altar pieces, within a secular universe and painfully yet clearly sensitive to the humanitarian emergencies of our times, the works reinterpret famous paintings such as Mocking of Christ by Fra’ Angelico, Abduction of Europa by Rembrandt, or The Painter’s Studio by Gustave Courbet. In this mighty agony, Stampone measures himself with the need to reconnect the so-called Western civility to his responsibilities, and opens to a critical reaction on the position of art compared to the spheres of power, both in the present and in the past.

In his interpretation of Goya’s Colossus, Stampone maintains the geometry of the 19th century composition.
Colossus is a painting dated 1808 which was a prelude to the catastrophe that would have occurred in Spain for the War of Independence.
Stampone wants to highlight the environmental crisis using the monster (the Colossus) that interprets the force of nature, with its bursting energy.
The city is considered as the contemporary nest to reunite as well as the place in which globalization determines this naturalistic crisis, the environmental malaise.

The use of the Bic pen refers to time dilation  and in this work on wooden board the artist adopts the technique of veiling: layer after layer the drawing that we see comes out.
 
This artwork is a proper homage to the City of  Houston, specifically made to integrate the collection of The Museum of Fine Arts.

Houston is one of the most exciting and globalized cities of the US, with an overload of electricity, lights, pollution, and smog.
Famous for its important oil and gas resources, Houston is a cosmopolitan city that makes us doubt of its capacity to survive in the near future, a common problem in our time.
 
Architecture of Intelligence is the definition of a process rather than the title of a work, and this process is the encounter with other authors. The narration stemming from Architecture of Intelligence distances itself from hegemonic narratives, which, by definition, tend to simplify, assimilate pre-existing models and schematize relationships. 

Siamo molto orgogliosi di annunciare la recente acquisizione di Architecture of Intelligence di Giuseppe Stampone da parte di THE MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS di Houston.

Giuseppe Stampone da sempre opera una reinterpretazione di dipinti storici in chiave contemporanea perché c’è una connessione con l’attualità e col periodo storico in cui sono stati prodotti: nel passato lo ha fatto con Manet, Gericault, Giorgione, Piero della Francesca, Tiziano.
 
In Architecture of Intelligence si tratta de il Colosso di Goya, un quadro del  1808 che preludeva alla catastrofe che ci sarebbe stata in Spagna per la guerra d’Indipendenza.

Stampone vuole evidenziare la crisi ambientale usando il mostro (Il Colosso) che interpreta la forza della natura, con la sua energia prorompente.
La città è il luogo di aggregazione della contemporaneità e anche il luogo dove la globalizzazione determina questa crisi naturalistica, il malessere ambientale.
 
L’uso della penna Bic è riferito alla dilatazione del tempo e in questo lavoro su tavola l’artista adotta la tecnica della velatura: strato dopo strato ne esce il disegno che vediamo.
Giuseppe Stampone riflette molto sul tempo del fare il dipinto e sostiene che Oggi bisogna tornare a fare nell’accezione più concettuale del verbo, un fare non più meccanico-manieristico.
L’artista si riappropria del proprio tempo. La velatura è una sovrapposizione di spazio e tempo, il tempo che scorre. L’artista decide ogni giorno di disegnare come atto concettuale e nel farlo si riappropria del proprio tempo intimo. 
 
La globalizzazione dell’arte pretende che si producano velocemente tante opere e Giuseppe Stampone reagisce invece impiegando molto tempo contro un sistema dell’arte bulimico e velocissimo. 
 
Il lavoro che entra a far parte della collezione permanente del Museum of Fine Arts,  è un omaggio a Houston, una delle città più interessanti degli Stati Uniti, che vive la frenesia del mondo globalizzato, del sovraccarico di elettricità, di inquinamento e smog. 

Houston, famosa per l’energia, il petrolio e il gas naturale, 
è una città cosmopolita che ci chiediamo come si alimenterà nel futuro.

Da CORRIERE DELLA SERA

La Lettura #416

Domenica 17 Novembre 2019

E’ il dettaglio di un campo fiorito, ma è solo la rappresentazione di un mondo irreale e incantato: Patrick Jacobs (Merced, California, 1971, ma vive a New York) è un artista che lavora sulla finzione e sul concetto di percezione.

L’opera della nostra copertina è il frutto di uno dei suoi diorami, ovvero ambienti in miniatura che l’artista realizza minuziosamente in ogni dettaglio e che solitamente rende visibili attraverso piccoli oblò collocati in una parete. 

Patrick Jacobs per le sue opere impiega lenti convesse circolari che amplificano l’effetto di profondità, alterando la percezione visiva degli osservatori.

Il suo lavoro si snoda tra disegni, installazioni dal sapore surrealista e piccole sculture, ma soprattutto crea mondi artificiali, spesso legati alla natura, altre volte aderenti alla vita quotidiana ponendosi al confine tra ricostruzione scientifica e un nuovo immaginario estetico.

I suoi ultimi lavori (visibili alla Galleria The Pool NYC, a Milano) raccontano una natura sognata, talvolta con evocazioni erotiche, spazi come luoghi del desiderio. Jacobs assume il ruolo di creatore di mondi ideali e inviolabili, che si rivolgono soprattutto al nostro inconscio.

PATRICK JACOBS Solo Exhibition

15 NOVEMBER 2019 – 14 MARCH 2020

THE POOL NYC is very proud to present Nocturnes, which showcases the work of the American artist Patrick Jacobs.  We have followed Jacobs’ career with great enthusiasm over the past ten years, from our first studio visit with him in his apartment overlooking Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NYC (a source of inspiration for many of his micro worlds) to his monochromatic landscapes and large-scale installations of more recent years. We have now arrived at the Nocturnes.  We are very excited to present his first solo exhibition in Italy.

Nature has always figured prominently in Jacobs’ work. In his earliest dioramas, he explored the ambiguous relationship humans have with the environment – a sense of wonder and astonishment, but also an underlying unease.  His depictions of weeds and funguses, for example, reveal much about our cultural attitudes towards the natural world. His series of works of fairy rings draw on ancient legends in which spirits danced in circles causing mushrooms to spring up.  Here, he conjures up the supernatural and, with it, a sense of fear and magic.

In Nocturnes, sensuality takes center stage as never before.  Lush, fertile, and luxuriant flora allude to surreal and dreamy places.  In the words of Shakespeare, Jacobs “uses the night as a cloak” through which he can enjoy the pleasures of a conspiratorial nature.  And, like Dorian Gray, he escapes into the night to indulge his innermost desires, sometimes frightened by what he sees and simultaneously overwhelmed by irrepressible desires. We are faced with perturbing, poetic and seductive landscapes. 

Opening Reception: November 14th 2019 from 6 to 8 pm.
