Venice - Island of San Giorgio Maggiore – Not Vital - Normadic Encounters

Venice - Island of San Giorgio Maggiore – Normadic Encounters.  Swiss artist, nomad and explorer Not Vital gave a talk Normadic Encounters at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini Onlus. Marking his presentation of the monumental installation '700 Snowballs' at Le Stanze del Vetro, until September 29, concurrently with the Art Biennale 2013, Not Vital talked about his experiences with craftsmen from all over the globe, the relationships that developed over decades of travel and the works of art created as a result of these collaborations.

Normadic Encounters. Not Vital maintains a continuing interest in engaging with indigenous makers of countries he visits: from the Tuareg silver craftsmen of Niger to the marble carvers of Lucca and of course, the Venetian glass craftsmen of Murano - with whom '700 Snowballs' was created.

Not Vital - 700 Snowballs: 700 Snowballs, until September 29, curated by Alma Zevi in the Benedicti Claustra Onlus, Abbazia di San Giorgio Maggiore.
