ArtLine Milano is a public art commission of the Milan City Council, an open air collection in the public park of CityLife.
The artworks constitute a permanent exhibition, fully integrated with the architectures of Zaha Hadid, Arata Isozaki and Daniel Libeskind, and with the natural evolution of the park of CityLife, designed by the studio of architects Gustafson Porter.
Judith Hopf’s Hand and Foot for Milan (2018) consists of two sculptures located at a short distance from one another: a hand emerging from the ground as if simulating a greeting and a foot placed onto the lawn. The two large elements are made of moulded and oversized bricks, manufactured especially for this project. These two enlarged shapes of human anatomy, built with one of the most basic construction materials, establish a dialogue with a highly connoted architectural context.
