I’ve seen a lot of museum shows in my time, but the Fortuny Museum show during the Venice Biennale was probably my best ever institutional experience, do date. The exhibition, called Proportio, explores the history of proportion (a lovely follow on from the Fondazione Prada show) and the way it connects man, nature, and the divine. After such dogmatic Biennale showing, t was a relief to see beauty put so seductively front and shamelessly centre. The show is curated by Belgian interior designer, collector, curator Axel Verdvoort and is the most wonderful, eclectic mix of things. There are painted works, architectural models, video, sculpture, ceramics, audio works, mobiles, books, tapestries, artefacts, it's seemingly endless. There are countless big names (Marina Abramovich who was there, Gormley, Anish Kapoor who was also wondering around) and many whom I had never heard of. But even this amount of material is put together so carefully that one is not overwhelmed by clutter, only by the richness of the content. The works come from all over the globe, from so many different periods. And of course, one could still look into Fortuny's studio space as it was… amazing!!!
