Suspended between a platonic hyperuranium and everyday life is the Mundus Imaginalis (Henry Corbin) Diorama intends to present precisely this “middle” condition of the world of images, exploiting the transparency, translucency and opalescence of the materials in an attempt to give back a real world that expresses itself with matter and image, with weight and space, but also with light and evanescence. An ephemeral and fragmentary theater, tight and held together by an actual physical tension.
