Meeting Point for Fakirs, 1998
iron, brass, barbed wire; 150 cm x 230 cm x 110 cm

Born in 1952 in Genua. He calls himself a „Hyper-textile hand-weaver“. His book “L´Essere e il Tessere” (Being and Weaving) shows, that Ghersi reflects his work also in a philosophical way. For weaving he uses all sorts of materials. Ghersi often involves his audience into his work (e.g. “Global Home” where passers-by have been asked to bring textiles or other things that can be woven into a vast tent-shaped object), and a lot of textile sculptures were made for public spaces.
