The multifaceted activity of Nanda Vigo in the fields of art, architecture and design is analysed by Marco Meneguzzo as a single project of life, in the wake of European Modernity. A protagonist of the Milanese cultural scene of the 1960s, Vigo began producing her Cronotopi in 1963, in the spirit of the transnational group ZERO. Participating in the avant-garde movements, the artist developed her own thoughts on the light, transparency and immateriality that were to constitute her work and also on the spaces inhabited by human beings.
The Cronotopi are the artistic materialisation of her understanding art: an existential situation that allows one to live transcendent experiences, beyond the materiality of the everyday in order to be able to perceive physically a higher reality, a universal harmony through contemplation, dematerialisation and communion with the Other.
