March 2021 Italy | Finally we could set up six of my paper works which will be presented at the Biennale Internazionale di opere di carte in Schio, Vicenza in a couple of weeks. It was an easy ride to Italy and a very warm welcome at the Palazzo Fogazzaro.
Next to some of my garments you see the marble sculpture “The Weaver” by Antonio Tantardini from 1870. The figure of a young woman with a shuttle in her right hand has the intention of celebrating the ancient art of weaving, since the Fogazzaro family were textile industrialists. The female marble bust pictures Margherita of Savoy, Queen of Italy.
I am quite excited for the show as it is the first time that my works of such different residencies as Switzerland, China, Finland and Japan are shown together.
