Nathalie Du Pasquier moved to Milan in 1979 and became one of the founding members of the Memphis Group that started to form around Ettore Sottsass.
During those years, she created many textiles, rugs, patterns, objects, and furniture, and when the group was dissolved in 1987, she gave back painting a central place in her work. Whatever the medium – design, painting, textile, or sculpture –, her work is born from an accumulation that constructs architectures of shapes and colours.
Beautifully quiet still lives, electric patterns, domestic landscapes, and construction games are mixed in a joyous freedom, as a myriad of visual spaces to explore. Sempre Milanese is a walk along that singular course through a selection of works.
