Over 1,500 man-sized sheaves of corn for quantomais, the field that shot up at the end of July 2014 in the heart of Milan. Cultivated on a farmstead close to Milan, the corn was moved into the city overnight and the next day it was a 360-sqm field on the Expo Gate square, right opposite the Sforza Castle, where it continued to grow for the entire month of August.
This agricultural passage transformed places and habits into a new experience to be shared: a lively meeting place in which readings, laboratories, artistic interludes, meetings and minor rituals accompanied residents and passers-by. After quantomais was dismantled, the sections making up the field were redistributed to schools, associations, communities and social coops through an adoption tender.
quantomais is a project devised and produced by A4A Rivolta Savioni Architetti on an invitation from Expo Gate's artistic curator Caroline Corbetta.
