ABOUT THE WORK



I want to gold-plate and paint three columns in one of the big halls with water basins up to a line where the Aqua Alta has to be expected for a future not so far away. The columns will be protected before using the gold.
p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000; min-height: 14.0px} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} Gold is like a crystal reflecting all the big questions of our civilisation, the possibilities and limits, lights and shadows. Klondike is one place expressing that on his own. The Arsenale in Venice feels for me as another important place for working with gold in front of a deep cultural and historical context.
