The Transparent Breath is the cultural event that celebrates the union between art, design and craftsmanship, emphasising the talent and creativity of international artists who dedicate themselves to creating unique jewelry using glass as the main medium. This exhibition offers the public a detailed overview of the world of glass jewelry.

The exhibition will host the creations of 20 selected artists from different parts of the world, each of which will bring with it a unique artistic vision and unique technical skills. The variety of expressive approaches represents a complete exploration of the possibilities that glass offers in the field of contemporary jewelry and the ornament.

The theme is The Transparent Breath, to evoke the lightness of the breath that shapes the glass jewelry. This action also recalls the act of giving life to matter using primordial elements such as fire, air and the ability of man. The city of Venice becomes the perfect setting to welcome these workers, given the ancient glass tradition that the territory preserves.

Thanks to the renewed collaboration with the prestigious Nani Mocenigo Palace, the second edition will take place in an evocative setting, enriched by the millennial history of the palace and its works of art. Visitors will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the aesthetics of the exhibited jewels perfectly integrated with the charming atmosphere of the exhibition venue.

The project is part of The Venice Glass Week, representing a unique opportunity to appreciate the mastery of the artists and establish direct contact with their works. Visitors can admire and buy unique art jewelry. During the event there will be organized meetings with artists and guided tours open to the public dedicated to the discovery of the creations on display.

Participating among others are: Andrés Belloví Agost-AGAPURNI, Celina Szelejewska-Pigulla, Alexandra Mező- Glassfield Design, Noriko Herron Glass + Art, Katarzyna Gemborys, Cecilia López bravo.

The project is curated by Eleonora Varotto from HOOROON in collaboration with Lisa Balasso. The event is free access from August 31st to September 24th 2023, 10 AM - 6 PM in Palazzo Nani Mocenigo - ADmore Gallery, Fondamenta Nani 960 Venice, Italy.
