The Museo del Vetro will present Metamorphoses of Forms an exhibition featuring the works by Polish artist Anna Skibska.
Anna Skibska uses glassmaking techniques in a masterly fashion likes to reveal the metamorphoses of forms. Using a small acetylene torch, she 'stretches' glass rods, creating slender and transparent threads, that are then folded and joined to create ethereal, perfectly balanced sculptures. Embroidering the 'incorporeal' mass of the glass with the same ability as a sculptor Anna Skibska manages to create imperceptible compositions of glass, "geometric spiders' webs" on which light plays, crystallising like frost on a winter's morning, revealing the Euclidean nature of the frozen water crystals. A play between the visible and invisible that leads to the essenceabsence of gravity and the lightness of her compositions.
