SANTA MARIA DEGLI ANGELI, ASSISI, watercolor
While being a resident artist at Arte Studio Ginestrelle, in Assisi, I visited La Biennale di Venezia. For a few days, I'm writing about La Biennale.
Today: THE SWISS PAVILION's presentation: THE SNAKE AND THE MOPED, artist: Valentin Carron. A wrought iron serpent welcomes you at the threshold of the Swiss Pavilion. It is a sculpture and a line that extends in space, indicates a path, and questions the status of the artwork and the function of sculpture, using the archaic symbol of the snake. Carron gives it new meaning, shifting into new material, using the moped for...future generations?
