INSTALLATION by MARCO BOLOGNESI | 2017

AN ESA / NASA INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION PROJECT

An installation created for the ESA (European Space Agency) and NASA  (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), on the occasion of the  exhibition in Venice Our place in space at Palazzo Franchetti, headquarters of  the Veneto Institute of Sciences, Letters and Arts, on the Grand Canal.

Here, a spaceship hosts a video of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope project  inside. The installation created by Marco Bolognesi is part of that of 10 well known Italian artists who have created paintings, sculptures and site-specific  installations, inspired by the wonders seen by Hubble’s eyes.

With the installation of Our place in space I wanted to create an installation  inspired by the wonders revealed by the Hubble Space Telescope 26 years  after the launch of its mission, in a harmonious fusion of science and art.
