Francesco De Grandi presents “Wood#3 Hortus Simplicium,” a project for the 55th Venice Biennale 2013

“Francesco De Grandi’s site-specific mural project has transformed the Gervasuti Foundation’s bar area with a work that plays with our sense of the perception of space by repositioning our references regarding the urban and rural environment which we live in. De Grandi has recreated the surrounding encircling vegetation with a fluorescent and illuminating trompe l’œil in the Foundation’s courtyard.”
