Rudolf Stingel Exhibition
Some say art should be used to challenge the views and perceptions of the viewer and Stingel certainly achieves this! As you walk through the door of the Palazzo Grassi you will immediately feel a moment of soft comfort underfoot as the artist has covered the walls and floors of the entire building with carpet. Dotted throughout are highly contrasting, abstract paintings by the artist that are mainly monochrome and centred to stand out. The use of carpet to flood installations with colour and life has been a trademark of Stingel since his “Plan B”, a stunning blue and pink carpet that graced the floor of New York’s grand Central Station.
