58th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia | Collateral Events - PALAZZO CA' ZENOBIO - Dorsoduro 2596. May 10th , 2019.
Part of "Thirst" - National Participations - Bangladesh (People's Republic).
The graphic story presented in the pavilion unfolds along a path consisting of five stages: crisis, intuition, hope, knowledge, and purification. The thirst for water thus begins with a crisis phase where artworks are displayed to represent the hardship and suffering of a thirsty society subjected to the consequences of drought or pollution.
The exhibition continues with a section of artworks alluding to the intuition attributed to water: the mental perception of redemption from the initial suffering and the chance of salvation. The following stage involves hope translated into a quest: a boat searching for water. In the fourth stage, the discovery of water becomes knowledge. In the last part of the exhibition, the source symbolizes the satisfaction that comes with quenching one's thirst and thriving.
From a depicted subject and source of inspiration in the history of art today, the women claim their universe in joining an artistic issue aimed at sharing, free from any sexist involvement.
Woman's Essence is an international project that has become a great dialogue in which to keep telling stories of contemporary artists from all over the world that have been nourished by their experiences and different cultures and their art, and this weft is one that we have been continuing to weave.
In our latest project, entitled "A", as a collateral event of the official pavilion, we will see them involved in the concept of water. Symbolism binds itself intrinsically with the female element. Water is feminine, deep, and often invisible on the surface, but life is hidden from the external gaze inside. The water is ductile, passive, fluid, and receptive; it constantly flows downward and drags all it finds in its way. Without dams, the water is dispersible, but in return, it brings fertility. Where there is water, there is life. Water and women are unpredictable, illogical, but unexpectedly creative. It is the story of mysterious and unpredictable souls that are, at the same time, intense and can express themselves through the impulsiveness of water.
Curators: Laura Francesca Di Trapani, Natalia Gryniuk.
