He sings a song of S following the alphabet song. “The world of contemporary art forget the love of art (human). Let’s wake them up so kiss me. Our body is art. S is sexual. S is something. S is someone. S is sexual. Sing a Song with S.”

The installation of Rakel PerssonLa Robe – The dress in Love” is presented during the event, and it is one of her sculptures made by felted wool. All her installations and sculptures express the surreal way in which images from the subconscious are revealed in the conscious.

CONTEMPORARY VENICE is an exhibition of contemporary art, an opportunity for international artists and architects to show their works in one of the most important exhibition place in Venice. The main theme is based on contemporaneity as a source of inspiration and a starting point for new visions of the world. The exhibition aims to analyze the contemporary human lives and behaviors, the relationship between man and urban/natural backgrounds.
The meditation about the daily contacts between humankind and contemporary phenomena is always object of artistic investigation. Art starts from the material and psychological aspects of the human life in specific time and contexts. We invite artists and architects to share their works, ideas and researches based on the theme of the event.
