TALAMO Talk @miart: Otherness and other forms of inclusion W/ Lemonot, Ethel Baraona Pohl, Anna Puigjaner


A unique field of potential transformations.

TALAMO  is an installative performance in a constant state of becoming, conceived by Lemonot Studio and activated by several external incursions of the surrounding ecosystem.

Animate and inanimate elements constitute the work’s habitable yet otherworldly surfaces, mutually mobilizing its ever-evolving landscape. Human bodies seemingly carved out from the chunky body of the installation intertwine amongst themselves and thread their way within, through and around the structure.

It is activated through a talk of presentation of the object to the public, on the occasion of Milan Art Week 2024, with Lemonot and critic, writer, and curator Ethel Baraona Pohl and architect, editor and researcher Anna Puigjaner.


Ethel Baraona Pohl is critic, writer, and curator. Cofounder of the independent research studio and publishing house dpr-barcelona, which operates in the fields of architecture, political theory, and the social milieu. Editor of Quaderns d’arquitectura i urbanisme from 2011–16, her writing appears in The Form of Form (Lars Muller, 2016), Together! The New Architecture of the Collective (Ruby Press, 2017), Architecture is All Over (Columbia Books of Architecture, 2017), Harvard Design Magazine, and Volume, among others. Her curatorial practice includes the exhibitions Adhocracy ATHENS (Onassis Cultural Centre, 2015), winner of the ADI Culture Award 2016; and Twelve Cautionary Urban Tales (Matadero Madrid, 2020), among others. Since 2016, dpr-barcelona has been a platform member of Future Architecture.

Anna Puigjaner is an architect, editor and researcher. She is co-founder of the MAIO architecture studio, which works on spatial systems that allow theoretical and practical positions to converge.

Sabrina Morreale and Lorenzo Perri are architects, educators and founding partners of Lemonot – a duo for spatial and relational practices, architecture and performative arts. They graduated together at the Architectural Association and they’re now based between London and Italy.
Their projects re-invent the relationship between urban fabric, public space and human rituals through a wide range of media: pavilions, exhibitions, short films and designed performances. They relentlessly seek new opportunities for togetherness and inclusivity, with a contextual yet transterritorial approach that aims to detect, celebrate and trigger the spontaneous theatre of everyday life.


In collaboration with Xavier Madden & Katja Banović. 

TALAMO is a project supported by Culture Moves Europe funded by the European Union, implemented by the Goethe Institut.

Created in partnership with Noctis spa, an Italian company with great artisan tradition, specialized in bedding.
