Not Vital: 700 Snowballs, curated by Alma Zevi, is open to visits at the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, in the left aisle of the Abbazia, from 1st of June to 29th of September, 10 am – 7 pm.
The exhibition is supported by Pentagram Stiftung, a foundation dedicated to the study of glass, which has begun the project Le Stanze del Vetro, together with the Fondazione Giorgio Cini.
700 Snowballs, by Not Vital, is a artistic installation consisting of 700 unique and individually blown glass spheres, created by Glass Master Pino Signoretto.
The spheres, which bear striking resemblance to snowballs suspended in air, rest directly on the floor, evenly and randomly spread, evoking the metamorphic, transformative and cyclical processes of nature.
In this special occasion the artist Not Vital is also collaborating with glass master Simone Cenedese, for the creation of a limited edition of a glass work of art, which will be displayed at Le Stanze di Vetro.
