INNESTI | Graftings

An itinerant personal exhibition

Curated by Rosamaria Campisi and Camille Innamorati from radioarchitettura and produced by CultRise, INNESTI is a personal exhibition by the Rome-based urban art duo ROBOCOOP, active since 2012 through urban art paper paste-up interventions, that concern a site-specific installation and some unreleased series of works inside The Popping Club, a contemporary art gallery in Rome, transformed from an ex-Atac substation into an innovative cultural centre.

The ink-on-iron sheets, showed in the exhibition, represent some old Piranesi engravings, melted and grafted with some modern Roman architectures, built by the Italian architects from 50s to 80s of the last century.
What does innesto means?
The original term comes from the botanic language, meaning a new plant operation into an old one: if it acquires a figurative sense, this grafting becomes a project tool, a practice of a formal research. That’s why INNESTI could be considered a practice research that melts art and architecture through graphics mash-ups and collages, raising up Rome and watching to the its future through the old and modern architectures.

In 2017, ROBOCOOP has been invited and hosted in Milan, for the Design Week 2017, in the creative graphic studio for architecture Di-ora-ma to exhibit a series of “Innesti”, following up the research on Milan.
