” I HAVE A RADICAL VISION WITH WHICH I DECIDED TO GIVE LIFE TO A GALLERY THAT DEALS WITH A NEW TYPE OF COLLECTING AND A NEW TYPE OF DESIGN; THE ALCHEMICAL DESIGN. VGO ASSOCIATES WAS BORN WITH THE AIM OF CREATING “FUNCTIONAL SCULPTURES” THAT PRIVILEGES THE MESSAGE IT DESCRIBES WITH ITSELF RATHER THAN HEDONISM, AESTHETICS OR STYLE, TO GIVE LIFE AND COUNTERCULTURE THAT STANDS OUT FROM THE PREVAILING MATERIALISM OF THE LAST CENTURY. WE LIVE IN A WORLD THAT HAS EVERYTHING, WHERE WE ACCUMULATE THINGS AND WORDS. THE GALLERY OFFERS A NEW FORM OF ANIMISM THAT INVITES US TO INTERACT DIFFERENTLY WITH THE OBJECTS THAT POPULATE OUR DAILY LIVES. AN IDEA OF CHANGE THAT COMES FROM SOCIETY, THROUGH THE NEED FOR MAGIC, IN A PROCESS THAT BRINGS ANTHROPOLOGICAL RELEVANCE IN REWORKING FETISHES AND BELIEFS, MAKING THEM GLOBAL AND SHAREABLE.
I FEEL VERY CLOSE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF HUMAN POTENTIAL, MOVEMENTS AND TO THE THEORIES OF SELF-REALIZATION FOR A COMMON FUTURE THAT AIMS TO IMPROVE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE SOCIETY IN WHICH WE LIVE. TODAY MORE THAN EVER IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE DESIGN OF A PRODUCT COMES FROM A SYSTEMIC TYPE PROJECT, THAT IS, IN TERMS OF INTERRELATIONSHIPS, CONTEXTS AND PROCESSES.”
