Burgo Calendar

Marina Marcolin invites us to picture the new year with the Burgo 2022 illustrated calendar

The surreal illustrations of Marina Marcolin accompany Burgo's 2022. Six watercolour plates that celebrate paper as a link between the present and its fantastic representation.

“While not being indicative of an exact place, the images offer a visual exploration of the here and now. The white of the paper — a clear and central element in each of the illustrations — is a window between the real and the unreal, between the true nature of things and a suspended, dreamlike state. The conscious decision not to include human figures gives control to whoever browses the pages. The spectator becomes the subject, interpreting the images with their eyes and deciding where the story will lead, crossing the imaginary bridge of the white and the paper”.
