ART FROM A MISTAKE
The body of work of Vanni's "coffee stains" comes from accidental spills (this video was filmed to present the style and process of rearranging a spill of coffee using a finger and a toothpick): the beauty of this process is to bring meaning and purpose to something that apparently went wrong (like a spill of coffee can be experienced like). This type of work also proposes the factor of resourcefulness into the art discussion, nothing new under the sun yet something that is always good to consider and to see applied, as well as the glorification of impermanence as the artwork created on various kitchen surfaces is documented and later washed away.
