Nanda Vigo

Born in Milan in 1936, Nanda Vigo bases her projects on the concept of chronotopography, according to which the spatial-temporal perception of a space is modified by the movements of light and by reflecting surfaces that create illusory perspectives. Her mirrored furniture and luminous objects are never conceived as autonomous, but they are specially-made to dictate the character of an interior. After graduating from the art school in Milan, she studied architecture in Lausanne and spent a period of time in San Francisco. When she returned to Milan, she collaborated with Lucio Fontana, with whom she curated the setting up of the 1964 Triennale exhibition. Fontana is, along with Gio Ponti and Piero Manzoni (who was her partner), a key figure in the development of Vigo’s work. Her career reached its peak in Milan at the turn of the '60s and '70s, a period in which architecture and art established symbiotic relationships and interesting collaborations. From the spatial researches of Fontana and Castellani to kinetic art, Vigo treasured different artistic experimentations by focusing on the integration of disciplines in her work
