- MY FRAGILITY, MY STRENGTH

New exhibition space of the Gallery: Calle de la Madonna, San Polo 1976, Venezia.

In occasion of The Venice Glass Week 2021, two artists in dialogue on the provocateur theme of seduction, considered in its complementary aspects of both force and fragility, of which glass is a perfect metaphor. Nataliya Chernakova develops her own inquiry on art forms as instruments for crowd’s manipulation, evolution of perception and the limit between kitsch and fine arts. Her exploration is essentially about the stereotypes of attraction. Marta Sforni deepens a lifelong research rooted in the great period of Flemish still life, dedicated to transparency in painting and constantly sensitive to beauty that survives time. The title of the exhibition is a tribute to the famous Pina Bausch quote: “Your fragility is also your strength”.

For the occasion, the new exhibition space of the Gallery in Calle de la Madonna, San Polo 1976 was inaugurated. The Gallery is located two steps away from Campo San Polo, in the heart of Venice.

Here some moments of the vernissage.
