Bradley Theodore Meets Murano
Artemest presents BLOW: a collection of one-of-a-kind Murano glass pieces, made in collaboration with Bradley Theodore.
Working side by side with the artist, the leading Murano glass masters created never-before-seen works of art, inspired by Theodore’s childhood in Turks & Caicos and revisiting familiar Caribbean themes such as starfish, lobsters, pineapples and corals.
The show comes alive through Theodore’s kaleidoscopic lens, uncovering the many symbols of the Murano tradition – hand-embellished mirrors, Rezzonico chandeliers and souvenirs de Venise – side by side with the artist’s own color palette and childhood memories.
The exhibition features handcrafted, one-off pieces from nine glass masters, including Covi e Puccioni, Fornace Mian, Fratelli Tosi, Luci Italia, Multiforme, Ongaro & Fuga, Specchi Veneziani, Venice Factory and Vetralia.
A short film shot in Murano trip will also be screened at the venue, in an intimate cinema-like setting giving full space to the artistic vision behind this collaboration.
