Aldo Lanzini | crochet/installation artist | time spent split between NY and Milian
"A needle in my pocket is lighter than a hammer: I'm referring to
. And while anticipated 's thinking and the destruction of
conventions that only philosophy can lead to, I approach philosophy with a needle.''
"Definitions are always quite liquid. I use my needle as if I were a sculptor.
I move instinctively and I dont think about the design of my work: I create straight away.
Needlework makes me think three-dimensionally: I start working on a little piece, than I
stand in front of the mirror and I imagine the next step. Sure I have a vision, but I often change
my mind when I'm midway. And what was supposed to be a dress turns out to be a jacket."
Lanzini attended the Spring/Summer 2011 Missoni runway show as a guest
of designer Angela Missoni on Sunday, Sept. 26, 2010.
He arrived with a group of thirty individuals wearing masks from his series,
"The eyes are there where they see, the things are there where they are seen."
