One direction

From petals, to pollen, to arrows; artist Begüm Boré on the transition from London to Milan

1_CHRISTOPHER_KANE

After London, Pollens fly to Milan following the arrows: Front row at Antonio Marras, Christopher Kane and Paul Klee meet up with Martin Kippenberger right next to the ''Pollen'' arrow. Bored of chess at Marco de Vincenzo and tempted by "the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune", they then drive to Emilio Pucci to play Casino Games and make a fortune. Emilio Pucci's ''Capri Pants" remind Martin Kippenberger  of his oatmeal covered "Capri By Night" (1982) and "Capri" - the restaurant Martin had invested in back in Venice but in LA back in 1990. They take the first plane to Venice in LA to eat pasta on Robert Rauschenberg plates.
