ABOUT WATER AND MEMORY. GABRIELLA BENEDINI
The scrap of a big boat, that seems to have come
out of the lake, prompted a dialogue between
water and memory. Sculptures and harps suggest
sounds, the white paintings, Costellazioni di vetro
recreate a horizon, while a sculpture, Canoa,
seems to mirror these emotions. This exhibit is completed
by a work evocative of the wind and a
round wall enclosing the echo of the world.

METAMORPHOSIS. LAURA LUSSIANA
Laura is an artist with a great love for paper, a
poor but eclectic material and with noble origins.
It will be displayed the Chartam project: through
ancient techniques, with a contemporary point of
view, the artist gives a new life to things that otherwise
would be lost.

ESSENTIA. MONIQUE LAVILLE
The artworks of this French artist immediately
catch the eye. The impressionist style is blended
with a careful study of light and colour that
reminds us of Occitan summers’ perfumes and
colours. A kind of painting that nostalgically
shows as idyllic life between nature and humanity
that has now been shattered by modern life.

INNER ASYMMETRIES. MIEKE VAN DEN HOOGEN
Through her potteries, Mieke Van Den Hoogen highlights
inner asymmetries of human soul and transcends classical
models to enhance the emotional experience. “In
these artworks, I direct all my imagination to experience
the pleasure of creating shapes. My creations are full of
happiness and for this reason they are different from all
other basic utensils or ornamental objects”.
