Beyond the Water

Event organised by Tristano di Robilant

Tristano di Robilant’s installation comprises five sculptures which are hand blown in Murano with the collaboration of maestro Andrea Zilio. The title of the installation, "Beyond the Water", is a phrase that in Venetian dialect can simply mean that which lies beyond the canal. More loosely it can imply that which lies beyond the lagoon and, even further, that which lies beyond the open sea - a place that appears metaphorically, existing somehow elsewhere.

Tristano di Robilant (b. England, 1964) graduated from the University of California in Santa Cruz, where he studied with architecture critic Reyner Banham. His works have been widely exhibited and are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo, the Maxxi Museum Rome and the Museo del Vetro in Murano.
