Stage presso l’Ecole de Mosaïque de Montpellier


Durante la settimana dal 27/06/2016 al 02/07/2016, siamo stati invitati dall’ Ecole de Mosaïque de Montpellier, a tenere un corso presso la loro sede per condividere con 10 studenti la tecnica da noi utilizzata per realizzare i nostri lavori.

jjjj

Lo stage è iniziato con una lezione teorica, con la quale abbiamo spiegato la tecnica che avremmo usato, il modo in cui sintetizzare i colori e l’accostamento dei materiali.

Ogni studente ha realizzato due mosaici, utilizzando la tecnica diretta su legante provvisorio e materiali come sassi e marmi. È stata una settimana ricca di scambi di idee, di confronto e di soddisfazione per l’attenta partecipazione di tutti i corsisti.

Ci auguriamo di poter ripetere questa magnifica esperienza!

A Modern Mosaic Menagerie: Aneme Mosaico’s Zoological Studies In Stone

Aneme.Mosaico_Panthera Pardus_37,5x28,5 cm_2014

We want them all. The Leopard. The Hippo. The Bear. The Llama . . . We want the whole zoological catalogue in stone by Melissa Moliterno and Andrea Poma of Aneme Mosaico.

Mosaic Menagerie

Animals have always been the subject of mosaics.

But, Aneme Mosaico’s enchanting images were something completely new to us. Their fresh, unique approach to the subject matter immediately brought to mind the exquisite watercolor illustrations of the 1700s and 1800s.

And indeed, according to the duo . . .

“Our works are based on the careful study of the materials and colors, on the the ability to synthesize ancient mosaic techniques with the zoological catalogues of the 19th century.”

Moliterno (Cosenza, Italy 1988) and Poma (Parese, Italy, 1989) met while studying at the Ravenna Fine Arts Academy in Italy. They have both shown extensively, with Poma taking the prestigious Experimental Prize at GAEM 2013 for his innovative work Impressioni. We found this work to be a highlight of RavennaMosaico 2013. (Previous story on MAN here.)

Their collaboration in creating these glorious critters began in 2013. In 2014, they presented this body of work as Animalario in an exhibition in Ravenna. (You will want to click twice to see the large versions of these photos.)

“Pictures and stones, cement and blank papers are mixed, becoming a single entity. Our materials are chosen according to the shape, to their veining and to their composition. They are no longer regular tesserae, but anatomical ones; stones that become cheeks, paws, and ears.”
