For summer 2016, Fabrica presents internationally renowned Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto. His installation will feature an elaborate labyrinth constructed from cardboard, with a symbol laid out in coins on a mirror in the centre.
The symbol, which is the infinity sign altered to add a central loop represents The Third Paradise. According to Pistoletto’s manifesto written in 2003, The Third Paradise seeks to reconcile the conflict between the first and second paradises of nature and human artifice. This conflict has led to globalized, destructive problems and by imagining a third paradise representing a socially responsible path to a new planetary civilization, Pistoletto aims for a resolution that will save the planet and humanity.
Date/Time: 9 July – 29 August
