SINGULARITY, the project that has represented Catalonia at the Venice Biennale, closes its doors on 22 November. Created by the film-maker Albert Serra and curated by Chus Martínez, it was chosen by the jury appointed by the Institut Ramon Llull. It is a 12-hour film which, from 16 December, can also be seen at the Virreina Centre de la Imatge in Barcelona.
The Institut Ramon Llull presents a new work from maverick filmmaker Albert Serra curated by Chus Martínez
The Institut Ramon Llull presents Catalonia in Venice at la Biennale di Venezia for the fourth time. A film installation by filmmaker Albert Serra will be shown within the curatorial framework of Chus Martínez. The title of this project is Singularity. Under this rubric, the artist has conceived a new piece, an immersive film installation projected onto 5 screens arranged in a dynamic structure taking up the entirety of the exhibition space. Specifically conceived for this presentation in Venice, the installation choreographs not only a wide range of views on today’s world but also the visitors’ movement through the space.
Chus Martínez is to curate the Catalan proposal to the Venice Biennale, featuring a project by Albert Serra
Catalonia will be participating once again in the 2015 Venice Biennale, also known as the 56th International Art Exhibition, as part of the Eventi collaterali, by presenting a project curated by Chus Martínez entitled “Singularity”. Martínez, a leading figure in the international art world with an impressive career behind her, is proposing a large audiovisual installation by the Catalan artist Albert Serra. As discussed at the press conference today, this audio-visual work is divided into episodes and seeks to mediate between the 20th and the 21st centuries.
