The Milan Gaggenau Hub presents”ab – the Essence of the Absence”, the the new and unprecedented photos by Laura de Santillana, curated by Sabino Maria Frassà.
Laura de Santillana is one of the most relevant Italian female artist. Famous for her glass sculptures, for the first time she is now presenting at the Milan Gaggenau Hub seven photographic artworks, called “Velature” (“glazes” in Italian). The occasion is the solo show “ab – the Essence of the Absence” curated by Sabino Maria Frassà and open until the 15th of November.
The artist “stripped” the photograph of one of his sculpture looking for what is hidden inside. The result is a series of seven truly unique photos printed on a transparent support and representing the essence of glass. In the exhibition the curator decided to put these new artworks together with big white blown glass sculptures, called “Space Eggs”. The result is a show, that reminds the viewer a scene from the film A Space Odyssey directed by Stanley Kubrick.
