The industrial and the craft coexist and merge in this image evoking Hokusai’s View Of The Amida Waterfall. Luna Rossa takes the the blood moon as its inspiration – a celestial event caused by lunar eclipse. How very like the earth to come between the sun and moon and cause such a mystery. Luna Rossa makes reference to the peculiarity of conflicts which characterise our current moment. There is mystery beauty in, and wounds arising from, dwelling in the contemporary.

Andrea Anastasio lives between Naples and Mumbai. After training in Oriental studies, he embarked on numerous collaborative projects as a designer for Artemide, Danese, Foscarini, and Memphis before moving to India in 1991. His research focuses on the manipulation of objects, consumer goods, and materials linked to the domestic context, in order to generate linguistic short circuits, while sabotaging their conventional meaning. He has exhibited in museums including Grand Palais, Paris; MART Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rovereto, la Triennale Milan; Yuz Museum Shanghai.
