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

Andrea Morucchio è un artista veneziano, uno dei pochi italiani presenti nel programma espositivo di questa prima Performance Art Week. Morucchio è un artista visuale, non un performer, il corpus della sua produzione vede l’utilizzo di tecniche, e ispirazioni, eterogenee, che danno vita a opere diverse, associabili a molteplici modi di fare arte.

This year’s Croatian pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Exhibition presents different struggles currently taking place in various Croatian cities. The exhibition, Unmediated Democracy demands Unmediated Space, interprets the topic of common ground by directly asking the protagonists of those collective conflicts how they imagine a common future across and beyond market or state, private or public mediation.
