Nanda Vigo (*Milan) is an artist, architect, and designer. She studied at the Ă‰cole Polytechnique in Lausanne, opened her first studio in Milan in 1959; she has exhibited extensively in galleries and museums across Europe since then. Her work is generally connected with her â€˜chronotopical theoryâ€™. As with all artists of the ZERO movement, the medium of light is also of key importance in her work. She experiments with aesthetics, particularly with how the use of industrial materials (glass, mirrors, neon lights, etc.) can have a positive effect on human sensibilities. Nanda Vigo took part in the Milan Triennale in 1964, 1983 and 2006, and in the 40th Venice Biennale, in 1982. She worked closely with architect and designer Gio Ponti and artists Piero Manzoni and Lucio Fontana, in whose studio her long-standing friendship with Jef Verheyen began.
