The first issue of the exhibition was in Venice, where we explored the Palazzo Ducale’s amazing historical richness, delicacy and inadequate technical equipment, while respecting and even emphasizing the broad cultural and iconographic disconnect between the space and the artwork to be exhibited in it.
We created a new world for the artwork of sculptures supports, show-case bases and vertical panels that rise, with a slight inclination, from a floating floor. All of the surfaces, both vertical and horizontal, were coated in a lining material created by melting stone.
