Barbara Paganin

Vollständiges Profil des Künstlers

The works shown, part of the Memoria Aperta series are mind maps and miniature landscapes that tell stories in gold, silver, semi-precious stones and new materials. They are inspired by the emotions of the artist’s past but they open up to the world by exploring the memories of others. For Paganin, the work starts with a search among the antique shops of Venice reclaiming unique objects and heirlooms. Some recurring elements points to her personal history yet each brooch contains details that viewers can re-configure according to their own individual fragments of memory.
