The Venice Glass Week – Casa dei Tre Oci – Massimo Micheluzzi - Solve et Coagula


Casa dei Tre Oci
Solve et Coagula - Massimo Micheluzzi
La Fondazione di Venezia, paying homage to the ancient art and technique of Venetian glass making, opened the Sale De Maria at the Casa dei Tre Oci, until October 9, with Massimo Micheluzzi’s exhibition Solve et Coagula, born of an idea by Fabio Achilli and curated by Giulio Alessandri.  The show represents the first Venetian one-man show by Massimo Micheluzzi, the internationally renowned glass artist and designer born in the lagoon where he continues to work in his Dorsoduro studio.

  
Massimo Micheluzzi


Solve et Coagula - Massimo Micheluzzi
“Glass is pure alchemy: the art of fire, the athanor, the transmutation of elements, all are coexisting and co-acting within the art of glass. The melting (solve) moment is followed by the coagula, as blood that solidifies in creating the object, but what is solidified goes back to melting and coagulates again and again till the final stage where glass take its final form. The transparent effect is in fact a trans-apparent effect, meaning to appear trans, in, through and from within. With these colored glass objects by Micheluzzi, this appearance takes the image of an extraordinary game of light and color. What trans-appears is how light affects color and vice versa and how light describes color and vice versa. The formal reason of the object is to articulate and contain such elements as light and color, that is why vases are normally empty and stay normally empty, being their content, the immaterial space trans-affected by light and color. How beautiful.”
