This year, the Affordable Art Fair Milan is delighted to present Art Sweet Art: a platform designed by Laura Caruso and Saverio Verini and dedicated to setting up artist residencies in private homes. Art Sweet Art proposes an alternative type of collecting: artists and buyers meet in the domestic space and work together to create a piece in which both parties are an active part of the creative process, and in doing so, challenges the normal roles of artist and patron.
Coming to Milan for the very first time, Art Sweet Art's founder will be on hand at the fair to chat and demonstrate their projects, with help from interesting video footage and images of residences they have previously arranged. Alongside them, Pogovic Photo Circus are here to take creative portraits of you! Using Polaroid PoGo thermo paper, they treat their images with water, fire, acetone, sandpaper and various other materials to create unusual and entirely unique portraits.
