Single-channel video as part of
The Border Pavilion
Research Pavilion, 57th Venice Biennale
Curated by Raul Zamudio, The Border Pavilion is a program of video works by international artists that focus on the global geopolitics of the border. As a component of the Research Pavilion’s thematic of engaging the Venice Biennial model of national representation in order to question the politics of its exhibition structure, The Border Pavilion extends this framework by encompassing what Edward Soja conceptualized as “ThirdSpace” and Homi Bhabha’s notion of the interstitial regarding agency in the wake of post-colonialism. That is to say, a social space and subjectivity that is syncretic and protean and foundational for an empowered and emancipatory political imaginary.
Participating artists: Anney Bonney, Robert Boyd, Stefano Cagol, Holly Crawford, Shahram Entekhabi, Scherezade Garcia, Ferran Martin, Cleverson Oliveira, Damian Ontiveros, Nadja Verena Marcin, Riiko Sakkinen, Avelino Sala, Julia San Martin, Teresa Serrano, Celia Elsamieh Shomal, Daniel Silvo, S et P Stanikas, Carlo Zanni.
Robert Boyd's, The Wilding, is a single-channel version of a 5-channel video installation.
