Homo Faber 2022: Eurostands sets up the big cultural exhibition in Venice
Eurostands sets up the second consecutive edition of the Homo Faber Event, the great atelier of international craftsmanship in Venice. The savoir-faire of Eurostands is at the service of the big event with the creation of refined exhibition spaces for the 15 exhibitions scheduled until May 1 on the Island of San Giorgio. The second edition of the event will celebrate the living treasures of Europe and Japan in “an exceptional journey seen through the eyes of celebrated curators, architects and designers”.
The work will cover nearly 4,000 square metres in the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice
The Eurostands installations will enrich the already extraordinary 15 exhibitions followed by 22 curators and exceptional designers that will be set up on the 4000sqm exhibition area on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice. Halls such as the Longhena Library and the Gandini Pool, usually closed to the public, will open to visitors on this special occasion and will be the set to explore the intertwined cultural relationship between Europe and Japan.
A path made of galleries, cloisters and new spaces such as the former Gandini Swimming Pool emptied and renewed for the occasion by the Eurostands team. The designer and curator of this latest exhibition is the award-winning visual artist and director Robert Wilson who, more than an exhibition, created a real theatrical production.
A never-opened-before space: the setting up of the former Gandini Pool becomes a multisensory setting curated by Robert Wilson
Our team transformed the Gandini Swimming Pool into a suggestive exhibition for Homo Faber curated by Robert Wilson, award-winning visual artist and American director. An area of about 1000sqm never opened before that becomes a stage made of visions inspired by Japan and the director’s theatrical productions.
More than an exhibition. This setup is an experience divided into two moments, almost like a ritual and cathartic path. “A multisensory setting: dark access, with works and videos by Japanese choreographer Suzushi Hanayagi, will culminate in an immersion under a blue lighting environment between art objects and clothes” explains Michelangelo Foundation executive director Alberto Cavalli.
The Nautical School transformed into an atelier of contemporary craftsmanship
The Nautical School on the Island of San Giorgio is a space setup by Eurostands, framed by beautifully worked wall panels to specially made floor tiles, where visitors can admire the demonstrations of master craftsmen of some of the most important luxury houses in Europe. Among the participating brands: Cartier, CHANEL, Van Cleef & Arpels, which are joined by Vacheron Constantin, A. Lange & Söhne together with many other international realities.
The event is organized by the Michelangelo Foundation in partnership with the Giorgio Cini Foundation, the Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte Foundation, The Japan Foundation and the Fondation Bettencourt Schueller.
