Polifemo

Giuliano Giuman's avatar Giuliano Giuman

My fifty-year journey can be divided into three periods. The first one is a 10 years period characterised by the shadow theme, which led to different modes of expression and artistic search. The second period focuses on the music theme: an exploration of the relation between sound and image, acoustics and light, vibration and sign. The third period began in the mid 80s, and is characterised not by a theme but by the choice of glass as the privileged medium. Glass embodies the challenging search for absolute transparency. An all-compassing search, in terms of both aesthetics and technique. This conceptual work, inspired by the Greek myth, overcomes all virtuosity tied to matter, to enhance the narrative and poetic.
