Faraway Places, Immersive Installation
We unveiled Faraway Places at Palazzo Mora for the European Cultural Centre’s TIME SPACE EXISTENCE exhibition in parallel with the Venice Architecture Biennial.
During the Renaissance imagined landscapes and cityscapes emerged in paintings. In parallel, elaborate illustrations began to appear on the title pages of books featuring imagined architecture often alongside allegorical figures. Both are bound by observations of the real and dreams of the ideal. They are influenced by a deep longing to see with our imagination. Here, in this space, this language from the past continues to speak. Expressions of natural and the built are collapsed to render an ever-shifting panorama of imagined spaces and faraway places.
