|LUNGOMARE GALLERY,BOLZANO 2007: Curated by Angelika Burtscher and Daniele Lupo, and soon to be published as a book.
'Our lives are full of “every-day objects”, they define and constitute a great part of our lives, and sometimes they contribute
to our transfor-mation – without us even noticing. at the same time they change themselves: they wear out, become old and break.
they also relocate and renew themselves along with other objects or activi-ties that were not previously present. sometimes they
may even radically change their basic function. most “everyday objects” are taken for granted and we don’t even consider that
they have their own biography. they’re there until they break, wear out or get old; and quickly they are gotten rid of without
regret or nostalgia. yet certain objects assume an important place in our lives by connecting with our own biographies, so that
we develop a greater interest in them, and become more aware of their transforma-tions, of their future and past. in these cases
we often say that we know their stories, yet it rarely happens that we report them, or share them with others.Storie di cose
invites 28 design-ers of different places of origin and cultural affiliation who deal with the production and creation of objects,
and asks them to submit an object of their choice, together with a biography of the object itself.'
