At Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi the artist Linda Hollier from UAE presents her brilliant artworks on wood: “Possibilities“, “The Meeting“, “Networked Awarenss“, “New Dimensions“, “Mobile Tecnology” and “Tokyo2Dubai“. Her artistic research expands into realms which allow her to work with and explore the concepts of the simultaneous occurrence of rootedness and movement, of emptiness and fullness and the essence of presence.
Venezuelan artist, Génesis González exhibits the selected photo’s works: “Collection #2“, “Single #1” and “Single #3“, in which explores photographic relationships between light and color while creating an abstract and interactive experience for the audience. Her photographic processes are conducted on the city streets at night while capturing moments and spaces, providing a new perspective to familiar environments.
Andrea Domenech Revesz, artist coming from Spain, shows her project “Shadows“, that observes what experience leaves in the body and remains there while it participates in building our identities through time and from a hidden place.
During the event Sandra Heffernan, associate professor of textile design at Massey University (New Zealand), shows a carpet work “Sunlimewineberry“. The fabrication in this research explores the development of advanced bio-materials using waste stream crop fibres and wool.
From a series of works called “The Black Tongue Lexicon”, the american artist Gary Setzer presents his three videos: “Draw a Line So Long It Can’t Be Wrong“, “Battery (Words/Sword)” and “Petrified (The Awkward Return)“, in which the two “spaces” are often home to both lofty construction, and great discomfort.
The argentinian artist Rodrig N. Albornoz, living in The Netherlands, displays a video: “The cicada“, that reflects on the displacement of identity and the role of memory when a someone lives abroad. To get to this feeling he decided to work with his personal experience as an immigrant.
At Venice Art House Gallery Jotho, represented by Thomas Gevaert and Jozefien Van Poucke, attends the opening in Venice, exhibiting the project “Changes“, made out of stretch fabrics. The installation “Changes” presents the view to the future, giving to the people the new ideas about changes in future landscapes.
MASKE+SUHREN ARCHITEKTEN UND DESIGNER, architects based in Berlin, in collaboration with the prestigious company BISAZZA, dedicate their project to the water, as their main subject, considering its importance, as an indispensable element for the development of life, cities and the future of humanity.
Estonian artist Tarah Karassev Montbélialtz exhibits her photos series “Future Ex-Landscapes“. According to the artist words: “what we build is for the future, but when we live among these constructions, it’s the present time. It means they are getting old and will be outdated, sooner or later”.
Virginia E. Roldán, known with the artistic name ViЯ, presents her paintings: “Long Year” and “Reflections“, in which she expresses her feelings and thoughts, most of the time, inspired by music, as a representation of a “cloud constructor” of space and sensations that later are transferred, decoded into shapes, colors, leaving all the essence on the canvas.
The acclaimed artist Silas Schletterer, represented by Jaski Gallery and Kallenbach gallery shows his great oil painting: “The Great Desolation“.
Charlie Wayne, French photographer and self-taught artist, exhibits: “Little Norma Jeane“, a Marilyn Monroe’s portrait as a “reinterpretation” of Pop art. He tries to question the eternal and ephemeral fame, appearance, and the place of reality in a world where image and marketing are kings.
FUTURE LANDSCAPES – Human creativity always spreads all over the world. For thousands of years we have applied our imagination and inventiveness to shape our landscapes. Cities are leading to a new aesthetic change that aims to rebalance the combination of humans and nature, not only to restore natural systems and ecological integrity but also to deliver beautiful, engaging and remarkable landscape experiences. Today we face many challenges that require a big effort in mixing new frontiers to create new extraordinary places and spaces. We aim to generate future landcapes without mental and physical borders, in which the human being is completely free.

Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi (Cannaregio 4132, Venice) is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal. It is easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.
Venice Art House is an art gallery located in Venice (Cannaregio 1863C), with a dimension of 250 sqm and two water entrances. Starting from the opening of the space, It’s LIQUID Group, under the direction of Luca Curci, in collaboration with the director of the gallery, Andrea Chinellato, has organized several exhibitions monthly.
