ALL THE WORLDS' FUTURES: THE VENICE BIENNALE

The 56th International Art Exhibition swung open its doors to the public on Saturday 9th May claiming instantaneous attention. Countless waves of art enthusiasts flocked to the contemporary art exhibition situated in various locations around the beautiful city of Venice. All to witness the exquisite exhibitions, exceptionally crafted by an amalgamation of 89 participating countries.
 
 
Founded in 1895, the exhibition now claims the remarkable age of 120. Capturing countless creative minds around the world once every 2 years, the popularity of the infamous exhibition appears to mature with age, as year on year additional countries eagerly participate.
 
 
The theme “All the World’s Futures” has clearly manufactured some inspiring and thought-provoking ideas, as the world witnessed the revelation of eagerly awaited exhibits. From the vast amount of stunning displays, we've compiled a (watered-down) collection of some of our much loved favourites.
 
 

 

Extravagantly constructed in the Japanese Pavilion, Chiharu Shiota’s “The Key in the Hand” project draws in spectators with mass admiration. The collection 50,000 keys dangling from an enormous tangled web of red yarn are suggested to represent the notion of memory.

 

 

Patricia Cronin’s exhibit “shrine for girls” strives to remember the repressed and pay homage to females around the world facing violence.

 

 

This suggestive sculpture is just one of an array crafted by Sarah Lucas featured in the British pavilion. The accommodating room is covered with sunny yellow with the intention of “bringing strangeness into the sunny light of day”.

 

 
The work of Céleste Boursier-Mougenot is situated in the French pavilion unexpectedly presenting a kinetic forest. A mesmerising tree moves about in the clean open space with the innovative assistance of a low-voltage electrical current. Envisioned as a place for reflection and retreat, a semicircle of surrounding steps accommodates tiring spectators.

 

 
Artist Antonio Manuel displays his work ‘Occupations/Discoveries’ in the Brazilian Pavilion. The brick wall, cement and paint installation encourages participation from spectators as they climb through the punched out walls.
