FPT INDUSTRIAL, IN COLLABORATION WITH ARTISSIMA, PROMOTES THE 2ND EDITION OF THE FPT FOR SUSTAINABLE ARTS AWARD
FPT Industrial reaffirms and consolidates its commitment to contemporary art and sustainability by promoting, in collaboration with Artissima - Italy’s most important contemporary art fair - the second edition of the FPT for Sustainable Arts award.
Following the success of the first edition, the Award is aimed at selecting the artist whose innovative research and works are the result of a conceptual and sustainable virtuous production process, with a focus on the marine environment. The 2021 Award will be in fact assigned to the artwork featuring an intrinsic symbolic significance, able to suggest the complexity, the fragility and the beauty of the marine eco-system. The winner of the 2020 edition was “Mare” by Renato Leotta, that the Brand later acquired. The work is a “horizon” belonging to the canvas series created in different shades of blue that the artist partially immersed in the sea and then left on the beach, to dry, under the sun: the physical phenomenon of salt crystallization brings out texture on the blue surface, thus tracing a perfect horizon on fabrics.
