VENICE, ITALY - 8 MAY 2019: A visitor looks at (L-R) "shadow puppet #001" (2016), "cannot turn the clock back #005" (2017) and "my legs" (2012) by Mari Katayama in the Central Pavilion at the Giardini during the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia in Venice, Italy, on May 8th 2019.
The 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, titled "May You Live In Interesting Times”,is curated by Ralph Rugoff. The Exhibition is is divided into two separate presentations, Proposition A in the Arsenale and Proposition B in the Giardini’s Central Pavilion, comprising 79 artists from all over the world. “May You Live In Interesting Times highlights artworks whose forms function in part to call attention to what forms conceal and the multifarious purposes that they fulfil. In an indirect manner, then, perhaps these artworks can serve as a kind of guide for how to live and think in ‘interesting times’.
