Mexican Pavilion 2013

The former church of San Lorenzo, site of the Mexican Pavilion at La 55a Biennale di Venezia, is an imposing ruin 20 meters high with several sculptures that remain standing on an abandoned altar. This fact requires the artistic proposal to act with and in favor of the space. Cordiox is a four-meter tall machine that describes space and the environment through sound, creating an exceptional listening experience. It is rumored that, because of its excellent acoustics, Vivaldi used to rehearse in this very site, and in 1984, avant-guard composer Luigi Nono presented there his opera Prometeo. Guzik’s work continues in that tradition, allowing us to have an auditive journey within the space, which due to its deterioration, cannot be transited.Itala Schmelz
