ELISABETTA DI MAGGIO

HALL 2.0

STAND F16

(1964, Milan)

This artwork results in an endless and unimaginable visionary design, which creates a bond between a very ancient skill and a reflection on the concept of contemporary time; the decorative pattern and the slow time involved in sending a letter. In each stamp there is a microcosm, which together with the others creates a larger cosmos, and then an entire universe.

Elisabetta Di Maggio’s first solo exhibition at Christian Stein was presented in 2018.

On view: Elisabetta Di Maggio - Solo show at Galleria Christian Stein, Milan 2019
