What's On: The Intellectual Work: Enzo Mari

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

The quietly quite brilliant Italian designer, teacher, thinker, artist Enzo Mari is exhibiting an allegory of “the essence of his practice, as much as of the practice of whoever undertakes ‘intellectual work.’” The written collateral of theorising and of course, designing is collected in loose sheets under a collection of sculpted and found paperweights. Part of the “systems of perception and methodologies of design,” they perform like devices of function and beauty. The exhibition is on until November 19 at the Tanya Leighton gallery in Berlin, and this slideshow confirms it’s going to be great.
