Damien Hirst during Biennale

Art can make us lost in admiration or shudder in disgust, can rise us in excitement or make us feel relieved but Damien Hirst’s art exhibition in Venice made us quite puzzled. Of course the word “colossal” rises up in one’s mind when entering the exhibition, association with “masterpiece” might be predicted, but suddenly the word “fun” jumps in thoughts. The craftsmanship of many objects doesn’t let us stay indifferent, some of them worth to be exhibited in such amazing places as Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana. Though it’s better not to read in their description that they “have possibly been owned by…” or “might have belonged to…”.

The size of the exhibition and scale of materials and techniques used to create such an underwater world are genuinely amazing, the idea of displaying cleverly the art objects made us curious till the end of the exhibition. At the same time the absence of a deep idea behind requires explaining the reason of exhibiting stylized ancient artefacts, mythical heroes and nowadays avatars.

Subverting the tradition of classical museum exposition of archeological remains, Hirst plays with a visitor’s fantasy shaping a nonexistent story leaving an impression that both venues are pavilions of an extremely expensive joke.

Dreaming of Joseph Klibansky in Venice

How much we adore a tradition of sending postcards! It’s such an intimate and exciting experience of choosing the best image of your feelings and memories of a particular place. Azure Venice, champagne beige Paris or peach colored Rome… what is the color of your favorite city? Our gaze is apparently influenced by our phones, tv and computer screens. But perception is much more than just a quick look. It’s a relationship between the self and the city, its people, smell, atmosphere. If the melody of your mood is perfectly in tune with the city’s vibes you will definitely become a part of its symphony. A progressive Amsterdam-based artist Joseph Klibansky has been exploring this contradiction between essence and perception by creating universal postcard cities which could be sent from any location. A marshmallow prototype of a dream is what we normally share with our dearest for a quick look or a deep dive into blue sky thinking 💭 Don’t miss Joseph’s exhibition in Venice at Palazzo Lezze in Campo Santo Stefano, San Marco

You're one in a mirror

“Stay! Let me at least gaze upon you, if I may not touch you.” Narcissus disturbes his own image.
Now look in the mirror – would you chase your reflection? How far can you go?
Leave behind the routine and trust your instinct, one step and you are immersing into the art world created by Aaron Nachtailer. This hidden gem is an artspace where you freely unfollow your daily life for a couple of golden minutes in the center of Venice.
You start a solo-journey alienating from the overcrowded city in the shadow of enamoured myth – you escape to discover, to think, to catch your inner voice. But watch your step – you are in the land of Echo, she waits with the impatience to guide you. She turns on the light in the hidden room, she blesses you with 2 minutes of silence in the aura of piece, pacification, imagination .. Don’t be afraid to face your thoughts, your emotional expression, your inner-self. Lights off! We know that Echo is only a myth. Welcome back to the reality.
Footstep beyond .. perhaps, you wish to gaze longer at the infinite series of your reflections?
Encontremonos – a piece of contemporary art world at Palazzo Marcello, Venice – come to disconnect from reality 13/05-25/08/2017
“This is one of the best we’ve seen during Biennale” – italian collectors, 83 and 88 y.o.

Let’s go to Cosmos and ride the stars

Dear Friends, we know how much you adore Star Wars, Alien and War of the Worlds. Let’s play George Orwell and navigate our spaceship back in future…
1984
USSR, Moscow, Arbat street
A young artist Gosha Ostretsov rebels against the herd instinct and collectivity behavior imposed by the communist ideology. Befriended by the hippies and non-conformists he leads a street art movement which is known for its oppositional context. Inspired by Egyptian frescoes and Russian icon-painting his alien to the Soviet system style has developed into the political dialogue symbolically transmitted by comics and costume-art performance.
2017
Italy. Venice. Palazzo Nani Bernardo.
A splendid baroque palace hosts a cosmic exposition of a top-ranked Russian artist, Gosha Ostretsov, whose artworks can be found in Charles Saatchi and Roman Abramovich’s collections. Here in Venice Gosha leads an army of supernatural artifacts that breaks forward and attacks statuesque baroque solemnity. They will invade the whole art space and mount a giant obelisk as a symbol of a new science that will reign from now on…Science Fiction 🚀🛰⚗️

Meet us HALF way

Do you think HALF is enough or too little? HALF is already self-consisted but not accomplished yet; HALF is the midway, but the whole distance is still uncovered. HALF is just one side of a coin. HALF is the center of an hour. HALF is a disturbing feeling in between duality and instability. It’s the anxious atmosphere of Thu Van Tran’s art. Thu Van Tran is a Vietnamese artist who was born in Ho Chi Minh City in 1979 but later moved to France, a former metropolitan country of French Indochina. Psychological and physical effects of the Vietnam War and colonial regime influenced greatly the artist’s mindset. It’s always been HALF political, HALF conceptual.
Artworks on the photos:
A seed HALF colonist HALF good?


“The hevea, the rubber tree, born out of a seed brought in and planted by the first French settlers who arrived in Vietnam in the early twentieth century. Symbol of a poisoned chalice considering the wealth and discord generated by its cultivation “ (Thu Van Tran)
From Green to Orange


The title refers to the colour-coded defoliants dropped on Vietnam by the U.S. military during the war.

A Perfect stranger (inspired by Cynthia Gutierrez)

The dialogue of nations – a truly conceptual artwork. But may a viewer allow himself to interpret it as a dialogue of strangers? Remember, perhaps you met a stranger once in your life, and then your paths never crossed again. And you still remember this stranger? We may sometimes be unconscious of the impact strangers may have on our future. Remember at least one mysterious meeting from your past.

A Mexican brightest star of contemporary art Cynthia Gutierrez will share more magnificent works with us at Biennale this year. We are sure you’ll be absorbed by your memories and thoughts. But don’t drown.
