Venice: Palazzo Grimani – In Grimani – Ritsue Mishima Glass Works. In the spaces on the piano nobile of the Museum of Palazzo Grimani, the site-specific exhibition In Grimani, Ritsue Mishima Glass Works, until September 29, curated by Giulio Manieri Elia and Mishima Studio. Ritsue Mishima, born in Kyoto and a resident of Venice since 1989, links her personal artistic expression to the thousand-year-old techniques of glassmaking and, as she herself asserts, could not create anywhere but Venice. Using exclusively transparent material, which not only does not interrupt the flow of light, but also gathers within it and encompasses all the other colors, Mishima expresses herself with a contemporary language, by means of the artisanal culture of the glassmasters from Murano who “forge” her ideas.
Palazzo Grimani – In Grimani – Ritsue Mishima Glass Works. The spaces of Palazzo Grimani, are not merely a receptacle, but the very source of evocation and inspiration for the artist, refined in the course of lengthy and assiduous visits to these spaces, in a personal effort to establish an emotional understanding. This experience has led to the creation of 30 large works and 5 installations, conceived specifically to dialogue with the Museum and its extraordinary decorations.Pin It
