When temporalities are first confronted in a screen, how is it possible for art to overcome the assumption that we have seen everything? By incorporating the idea of the spectacle, the voyeuristic aspect of it, as well as the individualism that permeates them, the works can be observed by the individuals from the exterior of the pavilion. Nevertheless, the intention is to utilise Bodies in Alliance – the claim that equality among individuals is not only spoken or written but is performed precisely when bodies appear together in space. The interior of the pavilion constitutes the body that contains the city. This embodied experience is built up as a durational exchange – between the public, the building, the artwork, the artists, the materials, and the city – which commences upon entering the building and is communicated through the materiality of the work. Between the pieces exhibited, “Venetika”, the video-installation by the renown director Ferzan Özpetek, who made us of the collaboration of the Venetian photographer Ugo Carmeni for the pictures of the city.
