che trasforma Venezia in un mondo magico
Ca’ Rezzonico, Museum of 18th century Venice hosts A Very Light Art till November 24th , an exhibition that interfaces art and the everyday objects.
It is a reflection about design, and a study of the historic role of artists in relation to the built environment. The exhibition is located in the historic environs of the Ca’ Rezzonico, museum of 18th century Venice and showcases the work of artists who master space and material in relation to context.
Seven the international artists chosen by the curator Cornelia Lauf for their sensitivity to the materials of the Italian art crafts: Mario Airò, Stefano Arienti, Flavio Favelli, Luigi Ontani, Gabriel Orozco, Cerith Wyn Evans and Heimo Zobernig.
Dangling, hanging, lighting – the contributions of the artists are neither adornment nor addition to their stately context, but function in seamless continuation of ancient duties. The unique aspect of all the works selected – lighting structures and mobiles – is their emphasis on craftsmanship and technical finesse, almost of them the product of high Italian artistry.
