52 Biennale alle Corderie: African tapestry made with metal whiskey bottle tops. Artist: El Anatsui, born in Ghana 1944, lives in Nigeria.
Transformation of recycled materials in a tapestry enhanced by matching colours and the meticulous an infinite number of metal pieces stitched with copper wire.
52 Biennale at the Gardens Pavilion of the Northern European countries: Finland, Norway, Sveden. Theme: Welfare – FareWell. Artist: Lars Lamberg, Work: Libertè, Oslo
The Swede Lars Ramberg, born in Oslo in 1964, brings an unusual installation to the Venice Biennale: three typical Parisian toilets, each painted with a colour from the Tricouleur with one of the French revolution mottos, fraternitè, egalitè, libertè. Inside you can hear the Marseilleise. The work comes from the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, where it is actually used as a public toilet in the museum courtyard.
Between the two proposals selected by the teacher the students choose the work from the Northern European pavilion, considered an upside down point of view in which the three terms at the basis of modern democracy are contained. Why are they up there? The work proposes an unexplored and original idea of Welfare.
