A world of paper

From 15 March 2008 to 21 July 2008

Isabelle de Borchgrave meets Mariano FortunyMore than 80 items, amongst which suits, accesories and trompe-loeil, all hand-made from paper with incredible skill and undeniable talent by the Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave tracing an unusual tour through the life and world of Fortuny, illustrating episodes and characters and creating in three dimensional models and environments within the museum which involve the spectator.

An exhibition/installation which on the one side revives, with live participation, the Fortuny climate, and on the other gathers together all the facets of this talented artist painter, designer, stylist, director inspired by the places and culture of Mariano.

Catalogue available, published by Skira and curated, as the exhibition, by Pascaline Vatin Barbini.
