Forum 62: Maria Grazia Rosin

March 21, 2009 – June 28, 2009



For Forum 62, Italian artist Maria Grazia Rosin has created “a seductive sensory machine”—an immersive installation of 20 illuminated glass chandeliers suspended within a total environment including sound and video components.  

The chandeliers, inspired by the forms of marine and microscopic creatures, allow Rosin to explore her multifaceted interest in science, from biology to physics. The exhibition is one of a series of Rosin’s installations titled Gelatine Lux (literally, “gelatinous light”), in which the artist creates ambiguous worlds, part cosmic, part aquatic, that envelop and disorient the viewer and raise questions about the beginning of creation.
