|Works of Gian Berto VANNI with "Love"
March 14 Fri. - 29 Sat. 2008
Gian Berto Vanni’s children’s book “love”,
Japanese version, was published by Aoyama Publish Co. last year. He also worked
as a scenic artist ( “Our beautiful castle” is one of his work where Marcello
Mastroianni debuted in ) as well as an architect and a video artist. He has a
keen ability to make books. “Love” is a representative one. Its free design
could be a small architecture in the microcosmos of the book.
This book tells the bittersweet story of a
little girl who lives in an orphanage, is considered a bit strange and,
although facing rejection, reaches out to the world with love.
With each turn of a page, unexpected views of the fantastic world will
come out of the book. "Love" is the beautiful creature that was
given a aesthetic feeling in printing, characters, paper, design and bookmaking.
We will exhibit 25 of Gian Berto Vanni’s paintings and watercolors, as
well as some materials about his concept of “love”.
