The small yet incredible creations of Miniartextil return this year to Palazzo Mocenigo in collaboration with the Associazione Arte&Arte of Como, which organises this show – which is unique in Europe – by selecting the finest international artistic production in the field of Textile Art or Fibre Art.

Gea, the Great Mother, is the theme that has inspired the artists from 22 nations. The Earth is analysed from every point of view – from its products to its wealth, from its colours to the various kinds of life it shelters – while recalling the deep ties linking living beings and the planet, thanks also to the succession of seasons: a continuous alternation between birth and death, generation and destruction.

The Museo of Palazzo Mocenigo, dedicated to the history of fashion, and completely renewed in layout and museum design, opens its doors once more to the contemporary scene.

On show are 54 “mini-textiles” made by revolutionised schema and materials, selected by a commission chaired by Luciano Caramel. The exhibition also includes an installation by Manabu Hangai, while Patrizia Polese offers her butterflies, I Love You 1 and I Love You 2, and the Japanese artist presents a work entitled A Woods.

from June 6th to August 30, 2015
Venezia, Palazzo Mocenigo
