La Biennale di Venezia (Part II)

 After we finally managed to leave Central Pavilion, we moved to pavilions of certain countries. Here are some favourites:

Andreas Eriksson, "Windows, Trees and Inbetween", Nordic Countries: Sweden, Norway, Finland

The place is showing the casts of birds, which were killed when crushed into the mirror outside of artists place. The paintings on the wall resemble the views from the windows and white panels on the surface are model of the artist’s apartment. Therefore, this place represents both the exhibition of the art as well as the place where it has been made.

Francisco Bassim, "Gran enterior", Venezuela

 

Yoshi, “Solaris”, Venezuela
 

Angel Vergara, "Feuilleton", Belgium

 
As you know, every great artist has its flaws and our flaw was 🙂 – that we did not take care about our camera battery and it got empty (and the pic below is our last one; it is miracle that this one could be made as well). On the positive side, we were relieved, because there was so much others to be seen and immersed. Our other favourite ones were Israel, Korea… For more pictures, I strongly recommend to see this blog, which shows even more works and more details on them.

Tabaimo, "teleco-soup", Japan

Last but not least, another event was taking place in Venice on this day – 68th Venice Film Festival. Although we were aware about it, it could be hardly noticed in the city that Hollywood celebrities are just on the next Lido. However, an accidental bump into Owen Wilson reminded us on that…
