I am a lover of art. And one of my favorite galleries to enjoy art is at the Biennale in Venice. The gallery is quite expansive. Part of it is located in The Arsenal; an abandoned shipyard of sorts and an amazing place to find abandoned buildings where there is some really impressive art. There is also a garden portion where there are buildings from an old world expo highlighting different countries and their contemporary architecture form around the world. This post focuses mostly on the art found in the old Arsenal. Unfortunately, I was so immersed by the art that I forgot to take pictures of the artist’s name and title. Please inform me if you know the title name and artist of these separate works. They were all so amazing!
This work, I had to show first. It was my absolute favorite out of the entire gallery. And it was literally breathtaking. This work was set up in a large room with low lights and and each of these components were made up of reflective strands that collectively made these incredible large forms. Some of the strands passed through the other forms making it so that when you moved the form would take a different shape. It was amazing. I could have sat in there for hours.
I would love to be an art collector… it’s slowly in the works; however, graduate school isn’t helping.
Today I am thankful that: in 61 days I will be finished with my graduate education.
These pictures were taken in Venice, Italy at The Arsenal art gallery in the Fall of 2009 while I studying abroad in Italy.
