CASCINA I D E A
Immersed in the green of the Piedmontese countryside, Ad Agrate Conturbia - Small town of 1,500 inhabitants 30 km from Novara - The recovered spaces of an ancient farmhouse were transformed into a place dedicated to artistic expression and artists. Place by multiple anime, farmhouse I.D.E.A. It consists of large exhibition spaces in domestic and non-domestic environments, a residence for artists and a sculpture park: a mosaic of environments designed with the sole objective of offering artists the opportunity to experiment in total freedom.
This project takes up to that of Cascina Maria, a residence of artist born in 2017 and recently concealed, which in a former rural residence has hosted artists of the caliber of Igshaan Adams, Francesco Arena, Riccardo Beretta, Christiane Löhr and Eva Kot'átková. CASCINA I.D.E.A. It is therefore born as its evolution, as an opportunity for pure experimentation, in the desire to dissolve the boundaries between disciplines and to host experiments of environmental art. Rural spaces want to report artists en plein air, offering a valid alternative to hangars or white cube, because today more than ever a rediscovered relationship with nature can provide new stimuli and give life to shapes from new meanings.
