Are We Still Going On?
Conceived specifically for the former factory of Max Mara fashion company, now housing the Collezione Maramotti, the large installation Are We Still Going On? by Kaarina Kaikkonen follows and accompanies the compositional structure of the building, an interesting example of brutalist and organicist architecture from the 1950’s.
The work created for Collezione Maramotti is the first step of a project that will see the creation of a second installation, Towards Tomorrow, for the MAXXI-Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, conceived for the square of the Museum, and opening on 14 April 2012. As a big sail, the artwork will move with the wind linking one of the empty spaces on the outside profile of the museum and thus reshaping the building designed by Zaha Hadid.
