Giorgio Vigna, born in Verona in 1955, returns to his home town with a retrospective that encompasses his extraordinary career, installed at Castelvecchio Museum. Today Vigna's work forms part of important public and private collections, including those belonging to the Museum of Arts & Design in New York, the Indianapolis Museum of Art and the Medici Treasury at Palazzo Pitti in Florence.
Vigna is an artist who expresses himself through various mediums – from sculpture to jewellery, from drawings to installations – creating forms that emphasize his creative force.
Experimenting with the potential of whatever medium he has chosen – be it glass, copper, gold or recycled waste – he adapts to its natural possibilities while pushing it to its extreme limits, to unveil all its hidden potential. Water, earth, fire, wind, shadows, light and transparencies are fundamental elements of his work, in which the natural and the artificial, the imaginary and the sublime meet and clash in works suspended between the possible and the unreal.
