Micol Assaël in Milan

31.01.2014 - 04.05.2014

The young Italian's artistic and sensorial installations in Milan's Hangar Bicocca

Hangar Bicocca in Milan hosts an important exhibit dedicated to Micol Assaël until May 4th. Assaël is an Italian artist and transplant in Greece, who deliberately choose a tongue twister as title.
This young artist's five installations are entitled Iliokatakiniomumastilopsarodimakopiotita, several Greek words unified, a sort of musical palaver without any real meaning.
Scheduled for the duration of the exhibition is a March 5th event with Mika Vainio (Finnish musician and founder of the duo Pan Sonic), who will interpret Assael’s work Mindfall by amplifying the sound of the motors that she has integrated in her show.

Bicocca has proved itself to be an important contemporary art space, established in 2004 after the conversion of the Ansaldo-Breda industrial grounds. (The structure was sponsored by Italian tire giant Pirelli.)
Exhibit organization is specifically tied to personal projects by international artists; each exhibit is marked by attention to research and to the space itself, so as to lead to the creation of site-specific projects that dialogue with the Hangar’s unique characteristics.
Plenty of Bicocca's events and initiatives are offered free to the public, and are rather varied in genre: HB Kids comprises creative themes and activities for children, while HB Public is made up of cinema series, guided tours, artist encounters, and bike itineraries in discovery of the neighborhood just outside the Hangar. Finally, HB School is just that: regular educational activities for every subject and grade level.
