Homo Faber

Some people used to associate the word “craft” with hippies weaving raffia lampshades or crocheting tea cozies. It was more like something you might do at home in the garden shed than something cerebral or lofty. However, an ambitious event currently taking place in Venice, Italy, tries to demonstrate that human workmanship in all of its manifestations is the genuine DNA of modern luxury, rather than being antiquated or nostalgic.

Homo Faber is a three-week biennale of workmanship organized by the Fondazione Michelangelo, a Geneva-based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving artisanal expertise in all of its manifestations.

Homo Faber: Pushing The Possibilities Of Craftsmanship

At the second edition of the Homo Faber Event, hosted by the Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship in Geneva, such feats of teamwork and artisanship steeped in regional traditions abound. Everywhere you look in this massive exhibition – which spans 15 exhibitions and over 850 objects – you hear about the hundreds of hours of effort that went into creating the pieces (a lace-like wood carving by Belgian sculptor Julien Feller took 3,500 hrs, and counting, according to an exhibition guide). This is a high-octane display of craftsmanship.

The Homo Faber Event features craftspeople at the pinnacle of their craft. This isn’t a show for the general public; it’s about pushing the boundaries of the discipline, highlighting the exceptional skill, and motivating artists to think about how they can appeal to modern audiences. It appears to be working, based on the crowds at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini on opening day.

Strong Japonese Presence

Japan, being the second edition of Homo Faber’s official guest country, is visible and felt throughout the exhibition. 12 Stone Garden is the name of one of the main exhibits, which is really located inside. It showcases the work of 12 Japanese artisans, each of whom has been designated as a Living National Treasure in their own country. These include experts in fields as diverse as doll-making and kimono printing, as well as pottery and woodworking. However, the notion of Japan is felt—deliberately—in the selected pieces presented elsewhere by artists from other nations, highlighting the century and a half in which Japanese art and design have infiltrated the aesthetic sensibilities of Europe and the Americas.
