"Exhibition of Works by Sculptor Franca Ghitti"
2003-11-18 until 2003-12-12
Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art
New York, NY, USA United States of America

The public is invited to view the Franca Ghitti exhibition at The Cooper Union. Works from this series are based on The Invisible Wayfarer by Italo Calvino, an Italian novelist whose whimsical and imaginative fables made him one of the most important Italian fiction writers in the 20th century. In Calvino's book, he wrote about cartography, which "was born out of setting boundaries in land maps."

Ghitti has been working with the theme of maps through an art since the 1960s and, by utilizing salvaged wooden planks, the bottoms of large barrels, iron cables and scraps of old notebooks, she tried to define a relationship between habitat and sculpture.
