THE LOST HEAVEN

16-24 September 2017

 

Our installation explores the theme of Paradise Lost as the concept of creation, a laboratory of design.

You can also find other Artists exhibitions and vintage-retrò furniture creatively re-decorated as pieces of art.

 

We celebrate diversity…

 

We did not at first plan to design an installation on a biblical epic.
It just came to us…

“This is the region, this the soil, the clime,

That we must change for heav’n?”

Our Paradise Lost is the Concept of Creation, is the Lab.
We DESIGN a ROOM where to view, to dream, to read, to breathe, to feel, to find, to get Art.

“The mind is its place and in itself

Can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.”

 

Paradise Lost is the conscious price we pay to modernity, the myth to justify a ruinous lifestyle blind to Nature, her rules and necessity, the illusion to power every process. Our first Mother look at us with severe and sarcastic love, showing, in the most vivid color of hers, the way to gain her heavenly grace again: just find our inner color the same color of hers, to dress and coming out.

PARADISE LOST Turns 350

 

 

 

On Tuesday 20 August 1667, the publisher Samuel Simmons made his way through the streets of London to Stationers’ Hall. There he paid his fee of six pence and had entered into the company’s register his right to print and publish the following work: ‘Paradise lost, A Poem in Tenne Bookes by John Milton’

 

 Satan’s Speech

`Is this the region, this the soil, the clime,’
Said then the lost archangel, `this the seat
That we must change for heav’n, this mournful gloom
For that celestial light? ……
The mind is its own place, and in itself
Can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven……

by John Milton (1608 – 1674)
