Art Unlimited 2017 | Giulio Paolini - Hortus clausus

In Giulio Paolini's Hortus Clausus (secret garden), a man dressed in 17th century clothes gazes at canvases that are scattered around him on the floor.
The gaze is represented by four elastic threads that extend from his eyes directly to the canvases. On them are pencilled images, showing us how the work is in progress and how images may have arisen or are in the process of being created. The gold dust surrounding the canvases can symbolize the endlessness (richness?) of ideas and the infinite possibilities of the artwork.
