Mutadis Mutandis - 24 pavilions October 16th, 2020

Poster for Mutadis Mutandis curated by Love Enqvist and Lotte Møller during Venice Biennale

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
oPENING SEPtember 24TH 7PM 2019

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.
