Charlotte Gyllenhammer, Hang 2006

A woman hangs from above, inside a wedding dress – or is she a living wedding dress? Charlotte Gyllenhammer’s video piece projects onto a ceiling of the gorgeous Palazzo Franchetti in Venice. The apparition in the darkened room is striking, like a moving, organic Venetian chandelier.

The video work is in Glasstress, a curated exhibition of glass art currently showing in Venice as part of the Biennale. It features sculpture and some video by well-known artists including Zaha Hadid and Tony Oursler.
