Imagine a space where neither wall, nor ceiling nor floor exists. Like a city in a realm where land and water have no clear border. In this blurred dream-like space, visitors walk on water, projecting their own shadows and becoming performers and observers to each other.
Blurry Venice is an oneiric experience, where the boundaries between environment and architecture disappear. Air, water and skyline melt together. The installation distorts the perception and creates illusion, which turns architectural construction into an imaginary landscape. The expanding space is squeezed by several marble "briccole" sculpted by Fabio Viale, which creates a passage on water where people can walk through.
Blurry Venice is a site-specific installation for the Venice Pavilion, Venice Art Biennale 2019.
