Alberto Biagetti and Laura Baldassari draw their inspiration from the world around them, from human behaviour and the collective memory. Through their characteristic method of decontextualizing visual elements, their work creates a short circuit between the senses of the body, the preconceptions of the mind and the physical reality of the surrounding environment. Each project that the duo creates tells a story, comparable to a short film, but instead of watching a moving image the narrative develops between the mise en scène of their work and the personality of the viewer, thus recounting a different and intensely intimate story to each and every individual.
In 2015 they launched BODY BUILDING, a project, curated by Maria Cristina Didero, that attracted the attention of both the international media and public. Wallpaper Magazine dedicated the front cover of the May edition to the project with an image created by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari. BODY BUILDING was also selected to feature in a solo show at Design Miami in December of that year and was followed in 2016 by NO SEX, the natural progression of Biagetti and Baldassari’s analysis of contemporary obsessions and human nature. With Atelier Biagetti, their Milan-based practice, the duo operates in the fields of design, art and architecture creating objects, interiors and site-specific installations for galleries and private collectors across the world.
