Pizza Box | A project by Droste Effect

pizza-box-the-others-torino

 

Pizza Box is a special project held by Droste Effect Magazine. The project aims to reflect on the nature and format of magazines’ printed editions, and on the way in which images tell us different stories.

Each Pizza Box is unique, and is curated by an artist, a theorist, a critic, or a curator. Pizza Boxes may present themselves in variable sizes and shapes.

The Pizza Box is at the same time a tribute to Andy Warhol’s time capsule, and a container presenting a timeless dimension. The Pizza Box neither preserves objects of the past, nor reflects on the passage of time. Pizza Boxes are just containers for rough images – the same images we can’t live without.

The Pizza Box project was presented for the first time at The Others contemporary art fair in Turin on November 6-9, 2014. Droste Effect showcased an installation of 11 boxes – 8 of which curated by Droste Effect, and 3 commissioned to international artists Jungsuh Sue Lim, Andrei Warren Perkovic, and Massimo Ricciardo.
