"Once again San Marino contributes to the Venice Architecture International Exhibition not only with a simple presence, but with an always stimulating and new interpretation key. The constant interaction between artists, architects, designers, both Chinese and Italians and San Marino produces side by side intersections and cultural references. said Vincenzo Sanfo, Curator of the San Marino Pavilion.

What happens if you combine Italian taste and design, the provocation of "pop art" and the artistic research of two of the most interesting Chinese artists of the contemporary scene? The result is truly unique pieces of home furnishings: colorful, pop, sometimes brave, but always firmly anchored in different traditions but present, solid, evident.

The work of Xu De Qui and Zhang Hongmei is that of brave artists, who wanted to decline the provocation of Pop Art with Chinese culture, combining Andy Wharol and Marilyn with icons, traits, the oldest Chinese symbols, irreverent colors with the heads of the Ming Warriors. The result is incredibly harmonious, pleasant and tasteful, for a furnishing that, if it has much to say at the Biennale of Architecture, can be eloquent even in any home or location.

The furniture becomes the architecture to accommodate the works of two great Chinese artists, through the possibility of interacting with the three-dimensional space can assign to their work a kinetic value that releases their creativity on different compositional levels.

"A way to represent creativity not in two dimensions, but in a three-dimensional way so that we can speak of direct and integral communication between color, light, form and space to merge into a dream scene and involve the public in the representation of the work of art that becomes tangible when the furniture takes over its function. said Italian designer Piero Luigi Carcerano.”

The Official Pavilion of the Republic of San Marino at the Biennale Architettura 2018 in Venice is open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.. Admission is free.
