ART HISTORY MEME » [1/9] installations
Austrian Pavilion, 54th Biennale di Venezia
"The installation consists of a variety of narrow corridors that are laid out like a labyrinth; the visitor is choreographed through a space that is divided at waist height: above, claustrophobic; below, unconstrained. The intervention is not autonomous; rather it is simultaneously a type of stage for the display of different paintings and sculptures." (x) Orient A and Orient B, two videos focusing on the movement and constraint of bodies in space, fill the entire labyrinth with eerie, reverberating sound.
