Michail Michailov presents the modular series Dust to Dust, previously exhibited at the Bulgarian Pavilion at the 2022 Venice Biennale. Often unnoticed vestiges of time, like dust, hair, marks, and stains, challenge us to consider their value and existence. Like the ceiling fresco in the Baroque Carlone Hall, his colored pencil drawings are based on the illusionist technique of trompe-l'œil.
Curated by Stella Rollig.
Assistant curator: Johanna Hofer
The CARLONE CONTEMPORARY series presents contemporary works in the Carlone Hall of the Upper Belvedere in six-month intervals. From the frescoed ancient world of the deities Apollo and Diana to the present day, contemporary artists bridge the Baroque pictorial program with new artistic stances.
