LIQUID ROOMS was an innovative exhibition format divided in 2 sections: the first one consisted in art shows hosted from the 26 to the 28 of February 2015 in Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi’s private rooms/apartments, that artists used at the same time as exhibition space and art residency; the second one was the collective show THE LABYRINTH hosted from the 26 to the 28 of February 2015 in the common area of Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, and from the 27 of February to the 07 of March 2015, in VENICE ART HOUSE Gallery new space.

The event was curated by Arch. Luca Curci (founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS, International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID Group) and Andrea Chinellato (curator and director of Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and VENICE ART HOUSE Gallery).

LIQUID ROOMS + THE LABYRINTH was an invitation for artists to explore their intimate self and to analyze the relationship between man and space (private and/or public). The exhibition had a dual-layered format which expresses the urban nature of the city of Venice (with all its labyrinthine streets) and the inner labyrinths of our identities. Opening the doors of their rooms to visitors and crossing the exhibition path through the different venues, artists and audience  disclosed and explored the intimate part of their art and beings.

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.
