Allegra Hicks. Inside Outside II

Event organised by Palazzo Contarini Polignac

The monumental 20m Venice -glass-bead textile piece echoes Allegra’s signature use of embroidery, propelling the artist into the world of glassmaking. The piece reflects this transient sense of beginning; the ephemeral space between the outside of the body and the inside, between the female and male–in brief–the flux of life.

Three painted beaded canvases attempt to decipher this fluidity of life. Like in the body, where veins and capillaries allow the blood to flow, so horizontally embroidered Murano canna beads (present in only three sizes and three shades of blue) create a strong energetic vibration, taking us on a journey through an imaginary corridor from each side towards the centre, the vulva: l’Origine du Monde.
