'Lost Love' (2000)

'Lost Love' (2000) is currently on display at Fondazione Prada's newly reopened building in Milan. Composed of a submerged gynaecologist's office which plays host to shoals of African river fish, the work is exhibited in the Cisterna space as the inaugural iteration of the Foundation's curatorial project 'Trittico'.

The Cisterna is a preexisting building made up of three adjacent vertical structures which once contained enormous cisterns and now houses ‘Trittico’, which has been devised by the Thought Council (Shumon Basar, Nicholas Cullinan, Cédric Libert). Three carefully selected works from the Collezione Prada will be installed in the space at one time.

In addition to 'Lost Love', the first selection for ‘Trittico’ includes 'Case II' (1968) by Eva Hesse, and '1 metro cubo di terra' (1967) by Pino Pascali, three works that all develop minimalistic geometries by associating objects and elements of nature with the shape of the cube.
