I was in Biennale 2003 – Venice part II – what is real?

An impressive series of ultrarealistic sculptures can make mad.
“We are family” is the title of Patricia Piccinini’s exhibition in the australian pavillion.
An excerpt from the Biennale web site:
“Who are “we” and what is a “family” in the biotech century, when we can engineer designer babies and know that our DNA is 98% the same as the chimpanzee?
Such questions are among many prompted by Patricia Piccinini’s exhibition at the 50th Venice Biennale. Piccinini’s art emerges from a deep personal understanding of the issues involved in medical intervention in human life. For over a decade she has explored new life-forms, creating an embryonic Lump in pig flesh in 1994, and since then making photographs, videos and sculptures that represent or embody synthetic life forms: from LUMP? to SO2 (inspired by scientists who synthesised DNA to create SO1, or Synthetic Organism) to the “stem cells” and “clones” in this exhibition.” (the complete article)

I was in Biennale 2003 – Venice part I – dreams and conflicts

Like Dreams, there are some visionary places on earth, one of this are the Biennale of Venice.
I went last year with a friend of mine, I like so much this kind of exhibition because there is a lot of inspirational stimuli. A good and pleasant wind inside mind and hearth.
Excerpt from the Biennale web site:
“Dreams and Conflicts – The Dictatorship of the Viewer, the 50th International Art Exhibition directed by Francesco Bonami closed on Sunday 2nd November, 2003, with a record number of visitors. The exhibition aimed to propose diversity in contemporary art through a multiplicity of languages.
Biennale di Venezia’s 50th International Art Exhibition presents an “exhibition of exhibitions” throughout the spaces of the Arsenale, the historic Giardini della Biennale, the Museo Correr in San Marco, and various projects within the city of Venice to be included in the section Interludes, making it bigger than any previous Biennale Exhibitions.”
