Paradigms Of A Hybrid World

CTRLZAK studio is known, among other things, for its hybrid modus operandi. The studio has realised throughout the years a series of works examining various scenarios of a ’hybrid future’. Starting from the history of porcelain and moving on to the world of textiles the various projects undertaken focused primarily on two ancient cultures: the European and the Chinese. A selection of this body of work was presented at Spaziootto a Sino-Italian space in Milan between December 2014 and January 2015. The exhibition, curated by Federica Sala, presented a visual narrative that proposed examples of artworks and objects that transcend national boundaries projecting them to a future world evermore unified and mixed. The aim is to reflect upon this future possibility respecting past individual cultures while creating new hybrid paradigms instead of chimeras of globalisation.
