Friday 1st April saw the opening and preview night of the Plastic Fantasia exhibit at the PLART Museum of Plastics in Naples. Following the previous buzz at the pre-launch press conference, the premier was busy from the outset with a diverse range of the Italian public coming to see what was on offer.
Enjoyed by all ages, Dundee’s exhibit, Plastic Fantasia, was the star attraction. Queues of people waited to plunge themselves inside the monstrous world of plastic objects created by Anna Clara Rendahl, Patrick Stevenson-Keating, Mike Shorter and Elio Caccavale.
The Italian press also took an interest in the whole exhibition, with PLART founder Maria Pia choosing our exhibit to provide the backdrop for the recording of a news report.
The night stayed busy the whole time, with people actually having to be asked to leave. After months of hard work from the team, it was very satisfying to see the final piece installed and being enjoyed by so many people.
We would like to thank everyone at PLART for commissioning this piece and making our stay in Naples so enjoyable.
