I BREATHE POETRY is capusule collection of eyewear born from the collaboration between VANNI and Catalin Pislaru, young Moldavian artist and winner of the #artistroom prize at Artissima 2021. Catalin, as a student wrote “I breathe poetry” on the door of his studio with a marker, it will become a dictum for him to follow, a point of reference for ongoing research. Year 1988 and year 2088 are the two models of glasses that suggest a retro-futuristic current, a metaphysical dialogue between the ‘80s and a possible future, the year 2088, a romantic conflict between past and dystopian future.
