From Jossgrund to the world

Impressions from the world’s largest biennial for art with paper in Tuscany
Lucca Biennale 11′ Cartasia

An impressive exhibition, which runs through a whole city and is really worth a trip: the Biennale in Lucca/Tuscany, which is completely dedicated to art with the medium paper. My works find themselves between artworks of artists from Brazil to China. Each work is impressive in itself. None even closely compares to another work, another technique. The only thing they have in common is that they are all made of paper and they all deal with the theme of a “white page” – a white sheet of paper.

My works are exhibited in the Palazzo Ducale, formerly the palace of Napoleon’s sister Elisa, remodeled by Maria Luisa de Borbón, Duchess of Lucca. They are displayed on marble tables, since the requirements of the preservation of historical monuments did not allow to fix the heavy works to the wall. They are installed in a room with ceiling frescoes and blue brocade wall coverings with golden laurel wreaths.
