Nepal: Legends - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Nepal
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Jennifer Karch Verzè, Roshan Mishra, Dina Bangdel, Kabi Raj Lama
An artistic reportage from the country closest to the sky, in a unique and extraordinary collection. Fruit of the creativity and work of 141 Nepalese artists that bring together the sacred and the profane, spirit and body, mysticism and restlessness, deep interiority and a modern worldview. Artworks created with an incredible variety of colours and materials - palettes of gold, green, yellow, red and blue to capture the hues of traditional Nepali paintings, together with printmaking, sculpture, rubber, straw, collage and mixed media – which seem to invite us to slow down the pace of our journey. As if we were the first to discover the beauty of the world.
Nepal: Legends. Contemporary Artists from Nepal is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
