My work at the Venice Biennale
The European Cultural Centre Italy invited me to present my work at the exhibition Personal Structures. This is part of the Venice Art Biennale and therefore a unique opportunity to reach a very large audience!
The exhibition will run from 23 April to 27 November 2022. In previous editions several well-known and admired artists participated like Marina Abramovich, Carl André, François Morellet and Yoko Ono.
Especially for this exhibition I created a new digital work, entitled Into the Rising Light and I want to present it, printed in large size inside of the Palazzo Bembo. This is a beautiful historic palace in the very heart of Venice. It is an iconic location near the water, not far from the famous Rialto Bridge.
Personal Structures – Reflections
The project Into the Rising Light has become a captivating photographic kaleidoscope, based on photographs of a contemporary hotel complex in Denmark (CABINN Apartments). The image shows a densely built, dynamic place, full of rhythm, angles and reflections. This is an associative reference to the artist’s idea of Venice with streets full of hidden corners and the omnipresent reflections by light and water.
In response to the historical context of the exhibition space, the work also subtly refers to the past. The symmetrical composition, in central perspective, is a spatial representation developed in Renaissance Italy. The color palette is a tribute to Renaissance painters such as Giotto and Girolamo Marchesi.
