Venice, golden waterfalls from the windows of the Correr Museum. After 20 years, Fabrizio Plessi returns


From September 1 to November 15, 2020, the windows of the Correr Museum will host Fabrizio Plessi's installation The Golden Age.

From Sept. 1 to Nov. 15, 2020, the windows of the Correr Museum, St. Mark’s Square side, will be transformed into golden waterfalls for Fabrizio Plessi’s installation The Golden Age.

Enclosed in the golden waterfalls is the inscription Pax Tibi, the incipit of the locution printed on the Gospel that the Venetian lion holds between its paws. Plessi translates gold, a symbol of artisan wisdom and a symbol in Venice, into contemporary flow.

The artist returns with The Age of Gold to the place that hosted his Waterfire installation 20 years ago, and he does so with a profound and moving tribute to his city of choice and life that anticipates the major retrospective that will be mounted this fall in the International Gallery of Modern Art at Ca’ Pesaro.

The windows of the Correr Museum will thus be the site of thescenic, luminous and sonorousappearance of cascades of gold without origin or end. The Golden Age is a suspended and circular time, which without nostalgia but with a concrete sense of the present envelops Venice, a city today wounded but of eternal beauty. Art does not deceive, the technological immaterial does not pretend anything else but expands in a fluid eternity the golden matter, to pervade the time and space of the stone city enveloped by the lagoon and the infinite refractions of light.
