Margraf celebrates the “Marble Stories”
September 14 2016
After 110 years from its foundation, a time during which it has become a hallmark of world architecture, Margraf has inaugurated the first edition of Marble Stories, an international exhibition, which will focus every year on art, design and architecture.
The first edition is curated by Giulio Delvè, an artist of international renown and this year's theme was “A Soft Stone Born from the Sea.” Margraf has hosted 6 international artists at its headquarters in Chiampo (Vicenza) giving them a block of 1 cubic metre of Vicenza stone to shape as they please.
The winner is James Fausset Harris (Jeddah – Saudi Arabia – 1982), with its work “Three worlds”. After graduating in sculpture, Harris currently lives and works mainly in Carrara.
All works will be exhibited from September 29th to October 1st in Verona at the Marmomacc International Trade Fair and sold for charity by the end of the year. The proceeds will be entirely donated to the Città della Speranza - City of Hope - Foundation, which has been engaged for years in the fight against paediatric haematological malignancies.
