    100% make-up. The New Romantic Style
    Alessandro Mendini, 1992

    The project consists of a porcelain vase produced in 10,000 copies. The shape of the vase is only one. Its white body is thought of as a place available to paint many different signs on it. 100 authors belonging to distant anthropological realities, artists, architects, designers and more are chosen.
    Each of them is asked to make a decoration on the surface of the vase.
    100 vases for 100 authors, each in 100 copies, all at the same price. A choral work. A parade of 10,000 pieces considered as a whole: the staging of a show. A new exploration into the pure, ancient and infinite world of the porcelain vase. A synthetic work as a whole, which however is also a constellation of visual stories, whispers and personal cries. The anonymous hegemony of the series disintegrated and recomposed into a hundred individual stories.
    As happens today with the political image of the world: a kaleidoscope whose global figures make sense only when the smallest and most decentralized elements express their identity.
    Turning each vase upside down, the names of all the hundred authors are printed in alphabetical order with numbers from one to ten thousand. The identity of each individual author is indirect but specified by the numerical sequence. And then a second phase of the project: when the public's requests have shown their preference for the vases of certain authors, these vases will go into unlimited series production. At a price higher than that of the 10,000 of the "100% make-up" operation.
