Bibi Smit (Son en Breugel 1965 - )
glass blown, 26 x 25 x 39 cm (approx), 2022
Salone del Mobile, Palazzo Francesco Turati Milan, 2022
The heartbreaking simplicity
of ordinary things*
Casually fallen fruits and petals
represent slightly uncomfortable and
awkward, but also, beautiful and tasteful,
fragments of nature.
These unique, colourful glass shapes
form a strong visualisation of
the joy of nature and the circle of life.
Bibi Smit has recently been commissioned
to create a large suspended light sculpture
for the entrance of the exhibition hall
of the prestigious Mauritshuis Museum.
