Sini Majuri also had a solo exhibition in Hotel Saturnia & International. The opening of the 3D graal, Dreams drowned inside glass exhibition was held on September 7th at 6.30 PM in Hotel Saturnia, Calle Larga XXII Marzo, 2398, 30124 Venezia. Exhibition pieces mix together 100 years old Swedish Graal technique and modern 3D printing. It is a surreal narrative captured inside thick glass, which has details hidden in, that can only be seen from an exact angle.
