Venice Biennale

UNITY Venice 2022

April - Nov. 2022.  A new project presented by European Cultural Centre during the 59th Venice Biennale, UNITY comprises two site specific installations on the Venetian waterfront - the precious miniature Harmony at Palazzo Bembo facing the Grand Canal and the virtual monument Native Tongue XR in Giardini della Marinaressa on the main promenade. Uniquely personal and universal, these structures speak through their symbolic I-forms and ancient stones and gold from Aotearoa NZ, imagining ancestral spirits and alternative states of being, sparking conversations and ideas. Across the waters of Venice, the figures project miniature and otherworldly Island-forms (I.), bridging continents and epochs in the floating city and biosphere.
