REVITALIZE

The Venice Glass Week 2019

September  10th, 7:00 PM

Genninger Studio, Campiello Barbaro, Dorsoduro 364, Venice

“Revitalize” juxtaposes antique and contemporary Murano Glass elements into unfamiliar compositions, creating a dialogue between the past and present. “Revitalize” begins with a microbe, a vintage orb of spiked blown glass, discovered in an attic's defunct corner of a prestigious Murano Glass factory, today abandoned... an element reminiscent of an atom or a microbe... an unknown virus, a bomb, an abstract flower, a star... a form of primordial life. It's birth is unclear and shape impossible to ignore. The spark of a rebirth and revitalization of silent reflecting elements...giving meaning to the present.

 

CONTERIA WINDOWS 

September  10th, 7:00 PM

Genninger Studio, Campiello Barbaro, Dorsoduro 364 

For The Venice Glass Week 2020, American artist and designer Leslie Ann Genninger presents a unique collection of jewelry and objects dedicated to Murano Glass and its sophisticated blowing techniques with a focus on the "Conteria" beads, which date back to the 15th Century. Her fascination began over 30 years ago when she visited Murano for the first time and discovered ancient storage buildings packed to capacity with stacked wooden crates of these minute beads in an infinite number of shapes, colors and styles. Each object and piece of jewelry in this special collection contains a kaleidoscope of Murano's history viewed through the blown "Conteria Windows”.
