Fondazione Giorgio Cini - Homo Faber - Magnae Chartae

Homo Faber
Magnae Chartae
Curator - Michele De Lucchi
Magnae Chartae - curated by architect Michele De Lucchi - pays homage to paper. In a world increasingly dominated by technology and machines, the significance of paper is celebrated in this imaginative exhibition. A delicate and humble material, paper can nevertheless last for centuries and has deep meaning for human beings. As a blank canvas, it provides a creative outlet for writers, artists and creators who transform it into sophisticated artworks using simple tools or just the human hand. From intricate miniature paper cuttings to mesmerising sculptures made of thousands of strips of paper, this exhibition celebrates the diversity and versatility of paper, and the creativity, skill and imagination of those artisans who choose to work with it.
