The etymology of the term phantasmagoria can be found in ancient Greek: phantasma, which means phantom, apparition, and agora meaning gathering or assembly. "Fantasmagooria" brings together artists and designers with diverse backgrounds (ceramic, glass, jewellery, metal, etc); showcasing an eclectic combination of media that aim to establish a fertile dialogue between disciplines. The works dwell in the space reconnecting past and present, celebrating the decay that gives room for new growth.

Under this perspective, the show unravels narratives that tackle contemporary social issues and dystopian scenarios. What is familiar shows its hidden content, highlighting uncanny aspects of our society and anthropocentric view. Iron angels, sugar-coated thornes, gender equality, delicate layering of fragile materials, imaginary objects that trigger a sense of wonder. Shining light upon what usually stays secretive, the works accompany the viewer on a journey between mist and light.
