LE STANZE DEL VETRO

Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice

12 May 2017 - 30 November 2019

More information

Qwalala, a monumental new sculpture by artist Pae White, will open to the public on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice, coinciding with the 2017 Venice Art Biennale. Qwalala consists of a curving wall made only of solid glass bricks, which occupies the entire area opposite LE STANZE DEL VETRO. At 75 metres long and 2.4 metres high, the 3,000 glass bricks for Qwalala were hand-cast by Poesia Glass Studio in the Veneto region. Each of these hand-cast bricks is unique, owing much to the chance and variation inherent in the artisanal manufacturing process.

It will bring together historic, modern and contemporary works related to the concepts of dreams, telepathy, paranormal fantasy, meditation, creative power, hypnosis and inspiration.
