“Overcoming impediments, the ‘Earth Banquet’ is there to break the isolation of our times, to feed our souls and to bring humans together around the same planetary table.” – @denisemilan

One of the things we missed most during lockdown was sitting around a table with friends and family. In this new time the Earth Banquet of São Paulo artist #DeniseMilan takes on a renewed significance in its ability to bring disparate parts together. The large dark glass table on display in the upper levels of UNBREAKABLE: WOMEN IN GLASS is awash with offerings from the natural world, and features forms cast in crystal, ammonite, pyrite, resin, and bronze. “I think it’s an invitation to taste the minerals, chew on our origins, digest this knowledge and radically transform our perception of Nature” the artist notes. The banquet presents visual “dishes” to the viewer, forms that “reveal the metamorphosis of the Earth, offering palates that expand our connection with nature".
