Artist Marie Denis at Vino Vero

The first art window “VETRINA #1” curated by Mara Sartore presents the French artist Marie Denis


Vino Vero in collaboration with Lightbox launches a new series of contemporary art events. Every three months, international artists who celebrate nature through their work, will be invited to present site-specific works in the window of the wine club adjacent to the bar.

The first instalment from September 25th to November 21st presents the French artist Marie Denis, represented by Alberta Pane Gallery, Venice | Paris.

The work of Marie Denis (France, 1972) focuses mainly on the object and the ways it can be reinvented. Her installations and sculptures are inspired by botany, which the artist reinterprets through different media, creating pieces where elements of the universal and the everyday harmoniously converge. The nature Marie Denis presents is sensitive and ever-changing, susceptible to both interpretation and new meanings. Marie Denis’s works are manifested in her ability to study matter, which generates an alienating, taxidermic, transmuted, manipulated and changeable nature that leads to the distance between the real and the artificial.

The artist focuses on processes of reinvention of the object, drawing inspiration from botany to blend everyday and universal elements, emulating a Wunderkammer (chamber of wonders).

Her meticulous collection arouses attention and reflection around the plant world and a biological herbarium that highlights her scientific knowledge and collaborations.

In her work “Spathes”, created in collaboration with the Giovanardi textile company and presented last December at the Alberta Pane Gallery, the artist states: “A meditation on forms and materials. Simplicity to the bone: in the darkroom of steel and aluminium. Coconut blades, engraved aluminium and matt black. The “Spathes” become Blades of Belfagor. The complex and the pure, the black and white of a two-tone nature: the obscure, explicit forms nourished by Eros and Thanatos ”. 

We are open!

Dear friends,

We are finally reopening today, with bated breath in the hope that this is not a parenthesis, but a reconciliation without end.

Having made a round of phone calls, we are pleased in the knowledge that the majority of our counterparts have found ways of reopening, however, the sadness lingers on for those who unfortunately have to remain closed.

New regulations require us to adapt our service somewhat, we will no longer be serving at the counter, instead, we will provide table service with a newly created series of dishes to accompany your lunches and dinners on the waterfront.

Furthermore, it will now be possible to reserve a table by calling us on +39 041 2750044.

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
