Fondazione Giorgio Cini

“(…) Art Funds began about a decade ago as a result of fluctuating stock market trends and the search for alternative markets; today there are about 40 (half Chinese) of these Funds. In Italy there are interesting projects such as ADVANTAGE PREMIERE ART FUND, an independent fund dedicated to collectible assets (…) which is promoting the exhibition “Rust” at the Giorgio Cini Foundation in Venice”.
Francesca Amé, “The Value of Beauty”, VOGUE ITALIA, April 2015

 

“Ancient figures but still relevant today that recall the importance of protecting the environment and the nexus of the relationship between humanity, nature and culture. The event is promoted by the Fondazione Cini under the auspices of Advantage Première Art Fund, an independent fund dedicated to collectable assets and which pays particular attention to environmental sustainability.”
Franco Niccoli, “Figure materne, custodi dei segreti della vita”, VILLE GIARDINI, April 2015

 

“Transformed into primordial forms, the school of fish represents aquatic life, the ideal generative power of the life force threatened by pollution and neglect (…)”.
ARTRIBUNE, magazine online, April 23, 2015

“Magical, ancestral, vital, with powerful expressivity, the works are forged in terra-cotta, and at times transformed into an almost iron-like material, not only rust – the corrosion that deteriorates the material, but also the tendency of an object to return to its original state”.
F.G., “La forza della Genesi corrosa dalla ruggine”, F (weekly), April 15, 2015

 

“At the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice there is an open air aquarium that flows in a path to Thetys, sea goddess representing the fertile feminine element of the seas and rivers nourishing the earth “(…) In the presentation of Louise Manzon’s installation, Achille Bonito Oliva said: At a time where there is a inundation of all languages, it is a challenge to affirm sculpture as an act of aesthetic conviction”.
Maria Teresa Secondi, “I pesci colorati di Louise Manzon”, IL GAZZETTINO DI VENEZIA, April 2, 2015

“The opening of Louise Manzon’s RUST at the Fondazione Cini (…) the tendency of a metallic object to return to its original state found in nature: a rebirth, an opportunity”.
IL SOLE 24 ORE DOMENICA, April 5, 2015

 

“In addition to the personal exhibitions of Louise Manzon and Magdalena Abakanowicz there is also Giovanni Manfredini’s installation…”
