57TH VENICE BIENNALE. PARALLEL PROGRAM.
The exhibition will become a space uniting the creative activities of 14 Russian and foreign artists working with different media: sound and light installations, video, photography, and art objects. Along with telling the viewers about history and offering them an unusual visual experience, it reflects the latest trends in contemporary art where advanced technologies coexist with traditional media considerably pushing the boundaries of the possibilities of artistic expression and perception. The complete and realistic feeling of traveling through time will be enhanced by the very space of the exhibition – the 15th-century palazzo Soranzo Van Axel. The old brick walls, lancet windows and visible wooden beams create a special atmosphere and cultural context for interpreting the pieces created by contemporary artists. Some of the artworks will be site-specific.
