Handblown glass, ceramic, textile, ledlight
The work Poliphilos`s fruit tree is installed in Vejen Art Museums collection, donated by New Carlsberg Foundation.
The work was a part of my project Fearless (in a dream) inspired by the novel Poliphilos`s Strife of Love in a Dream.The novel is said to be by Francesco Colonna, first published in 1499 in Venice, and it is a famous example of an incunable (a work of early print making). The story presents a mysterious arcane allegory of a romance in which the main protagonist, Poliphilo, pursues his love, Polia, through a mysterious dreamlike landscape filled by ornaments, flowers and orchards, and in his travels he meets monsters, gods, nymphs and strange plants on his way.
