Big Objects Not Always Silent
Luca Lo Pinto (Ed.)
French-born, Italy-based artist Nathalie Du Pasquier (b. 1957) was one of the founding members of Memphis, the groundbreaking Milanese design and architecture collective. During her time with Memphis, she designed patterns for textiles, carpets, objects and furniture, and later, patterns for American Apparel. Since 1987, her main passion has been painting and still life. In honor of the artist’s rich career, this very personal two-volume artist book accompanying a traveling retrospective by Kunsthalle Wien and the ICA, University of Pennsylvania, features over 30 years of Du Pasquier’s drawings and paintings, plus installation views. Influences range from Africa, Le Corbusier to de Chirico and Morandi. An interview with the artist by Luca Lo Pinto and essays by Andrew Ayers, Dafne Boggeri, Stephen Piccolo, Lodovico Pignatti Morano and Barbara Radice provide an informative and subjective view of her artistic practice.
