Luca Nichetto — curator of the fourth exhibition project scheduled from 11 September 2021 to 10 April 2022 in the halls of InGalleria, the Art Gallery of Punta Conterie a Murano — chose an adjective to describe this exhibition which will focus on the attractive power of matter and shape.
Empathic. Discovering a Glass Legacy, is the full title of the project, showcasing installations and limited- edition pieces made by Ini Archibong, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, GamFratesi, Benjamin Hubert, Richard Hutten, Elena Salmistraro and Marc Thorpe invited by the curator— who will also exhibit his own installation — to freely incorporate Murano glass in their works. They were not given any brief or constraint: instead, they were left free to empathetically conceive, design and experiment with glass in its multiple forms: blown glass, glass rods, cast glass.
