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 places 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.

The artist Morris On from Italy presents his artworks “Colours” and “You and Me“. His works are mainly based on abstract and geometric figures and the concept of Oxymoron.
Colours is based on the word Colour but depicted in white. White is the combination of all colours but at the same time the viewer is not expecting to see a white canvas.
That’s where a smart viewer can see coherence in Morris concept. Nothing is left to the chance and everything is a theory to be discovered by thinking beyond the image itself. Those conceptual works represent Morris first typology of works.
You and Me instead represents a new wave in his artistic journey. Inspired by love and passion, a new sense of belonging and union through colours and words. This works is full of energy and subliminal messages related to new life experiences in the artist’s life.
Coming from Norway Sandra Burek exhibits her installation work “Time of stone“, made by stone from Italy and iron. By examination of the stone layer by layer, Burek refers to its memory and age, scarred by nature. The veins of the stone not only represent a record of time, but also of how it had been subject to constant modification through confrontation with history. Within the stone is contained an incredible background of history – it’s culture, economy and art, as if the entire wealth of history of the nature had been petrified within it, one that is so ordinary and yet simultaneously so powerful.
From Switzerland artist Marlo-Marianne Charlotte Mylonas-Svikovsky shows the artworks “Hope for peace between different worlds“, “Lampedusa…” and “Syria…World’s madness…“.
Each work exhibited has a deepness and emotional concept. “Hope for peace between different worlds” represents the artist emotion created by the repeated desolating news about the blocked situation in Syria by the two main opposing worlds. The Abstract deathly precision and bloody horror of war are expressed in this painting as well as the deadlock of the situation.
“Lampedusa…” is created when the news broke out on Television about Syria’s people leaving everything behind, fleeing war with hope for safety but so many then dreadfully disappearing in our sea before their arrival at Lampedusa. The painting is a sort of exodus that hit her emotionally having experienced war situation and leaving when a child.
“Syria…World’s madness…” is a emotional canvas maked the emotional experience of her living in Tunisia, where her father was a UN delegate.
Shanglie Zhou, artist from Belgium presents the video “Silent Echoes No.2“, a poetic reflection on some philosophical questions regarding the interrelation between the natural world and us human beings, the interaction between organisms and their environment, the interaction between human ecology and urban ecology. This video is a part of the ecology art project “Incisive Land” in Asia and Europe.
Turkish artist Bülent Sancar present his abstract sculptures “Lava (No title)” and “Thera“, created by special dye and glaze technique of Ceramic Art.
