Memories/Objects is the first story of Sotto Sale Market, a curated selection of ideas and memories in the form of design objects and garments. The aim of Sotto Sale Market is to give visibility and financial support to art practices of emerging artists that have been previously presented by Sotto Sale Projects. Through the sale of smaller works, mementos, relics, drawings, rare fashion pieces and other curiosities, the market wants to replicate a moment in time when a particular artist felt inspired by a certain circumstance. The market is here to share these stories with you.
These limited edition throws are the product of time and isolation.
Both the translation of a moment of happiness, and the desire of keeping that beautiful memory close to our hearts.
During the past few months, Yulia has travelled with her mind into her favourite place.
Forte dei Marmi, in Italy, represents a lot for her; JOY, family, escape and a second home. The impossibility of leaving London and the desire to transfer these memories into an art-object gave birth to this project.
Made from an ethically-sourced blend of premium cashmere and wool manufactured in a small warehouse in Italy, the throws depict two of the artist’s favourite paintings from her own archive.
10% of the proceeds go to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, an animal charity established in 1860.
Battersea Dogs and Cats Home is one of the few animal rescued centres that run a non-selective intake policy, meaning that they accept any breed of animal, at any age, including dogs or cats with serious medical problems.
