52nd Venice International Art Biennale

Saturday 9th June – Galleria Marina Barovier: Laura de Santillana – Khadi. Another exhibition not to be missed is Laura de Santillana’s sculpture exhibition, entitled Khadi, at the Galleria Marina Barovier, until September 30th. The only proof of mystery is the unique clarity of the object inside which a sprit momentarily inhabited. These words by Cristina Campo seem to have been written for Laura’s work. Fragments, or complete sets of forms, shine in the vitreous liquidity of glass-like metallic spines, rippled copper weaves, bronze and brass remnants resembling archeological textures belonging to regal cloaks, sumptuous and delicate remains of vestments float and dance.
