57th Venice Biennale, 2017

Last week I was for a few days in Venice at the 57th Biennale.

My favorites:

Jesse Jones (Irish Pavilion)
“Tremble Tremble”, 2017
Political work about feminist archetypes.

Vajiko Chachkhiani (Georgian Pavilion)
“A Living Dog in the Midst of Dead Lions”, 2017
A small, abandoned wooden hut, which as been found in the Georgian Countryside.
It is raining inside.

V.C. quote: “Through my sculptures and installations, I seek to address psychological conditions such as loneliness, violence and angst and to interweave them with topics from religion, politics, literature, and poetry”.

Koki Tanaka (Pavilion of the Earth)
“Of Walking in Unknown”, 2017
Video installation linked to the 2011 Fukushima disaster.
