Biancoshock’s manholes, though, are not found easily – but then, they’re not supposed to be. Hidden across Italy’s fashion capital is a subterranean living room, a bathroom and a kitchen, each of which is located in its own confined utility hole.
Those lucky enough to discover the spaces are rewarded with a truly remarkable sight. Take the living room installation, for example, which reveals an exquisite Raphaelite cherub gazing up to ground level. Is he trying to tell us something?
Beside the painting is a top hat, which suggests that whoever lives here is a person of taste. But then this space is far too small to be somebody’s home, isn’t it?
