Giardini projects, on the heterotopic island of Venice, was initiated 2019 as a platform to host dinners, smaller exhibitions, book projects and performative work at irregular basis.
The space is the kitchen, living room and courtyard of Giardini townhouse. The intent is to give people the opportunity to hear each other in a setting that incorporates the home and quotidian aspect.
A self organized portal to elsewhere and an intimate experience of contemporary art.
As an impromptu response to the cancellation of the Venice architecture biennial and the subsequent postponement of the upcoming art biennial, 'Mutadis Mutandis' showcases 24 proposals for future/imaginary pavilions free of any geopolitical, economic, physical, durational, or cosmic limitations.
Studio Giardini is – very suitably – situated in close proximity to the Giardini della Biennale in a residential neighborhood directly behind the oldest foreign pavilion inaugurated in 1907.

Hourglass, an exhibition of works by Elena Mazzi, Malin Petersson Öberg and Theresa Reimann-Dubbers at Studio Giardini in collaboration with Love Enqvist and East of Elsewhere. Curated by Camila McHugh.
Glass is rife with metaphor, ready to stand in for the fragile, shattered, or crystal clear. It is also, of course, something that stands for nothing, or stands as nothing, when we look through it daily. Here, three artists take on glass as a material inextricable from innovation. They remind us it is something made – from sand and heat – and also something constructed culturally. Glass has a storied history in Venice, most notably that of Murano Glass. At Studio Giardini, a large, street-level window stands apart from its neighbor’s brick and pastel facades on the cobblestoned Rio Tera San Isepo. Hourglass, a presentation of films by Elena Mazzi and Malin Petersson Öberg, alongside a stained glass window installation and lecture-performance by Theresa Reimann-Dubbers, refracts this sense of place.
