The Italian-born artist Rudolf Stingel shows his personal art collection at the Palazzo Grassi. He got absolute freedom for his exhibition. He choice to cover all the walls and floors with carpet with oriental patterns.

The carpet is a medium through which painting relates to its architectural context. With his interest in the redefinition of the meaning of ”painting” and its perception, Stingel places the ”carpet” at the core of his poetics.

The paintings are stunning but I would also go if the room was only covered with the carpets. Loving the idea of beginning in a space with only carpets.
