Dior presents a new installation by the Italian artist Fabrizio Plessi, L’età dell’Oro, which illuminates the façade of the Museo Correr in Venice. An emotional homage to his life in Venice, this striking work by the video art pioneer depicts a perpetual cascade of golden waterfalls. The instalation finds a mirror in the gilt mosaics of Basilica di San Marco and acts as a symbolic light in the darkness of our times.

 

L’Etàd’Oro (The Golden Age) represents a suspended and circular time that envelops Venice without nostalgia but with a concrete sense of the present, in a city that is today suffering but is of an eternal, incorruptible beauty that survives all.

I continue to dream, because dreams are the only important thing. And when you dream of art, art is the only thing in the world that can still save us.

The artist hosted the Waterfire installation twenty years ago, in the same place and now returns with the new work as he turns 80 with a deep and emotional tribute to his city of choice and life. Also, the major retrospective will open with the same title in the autumn at the Galleria Internazionale d’ArteModerna di Ca’ Pesaro.
