Arthur Bispo do Rosario. Il palazzo enciclopedico

Biennale de Venise, Il Palazzo enciclopedico.

Texte du guide de la biennale 2013
During five decdes of internment in a psychiatric hospital in Rio d Janeiro, Artur Bispo di Rosario produced over 800 tapestries, sculptures, and lavish ceremonial garments in preparation for Judgement Day. Bispo, a former navy ensign, worked odd jobs around Rio until a 1938 visitation in which Christ and a host of blue angels told him he had been chosen to present to God, at the end of time, the contents of the world that he deemed worthy of redemption.
