Venice - Exhibition

Shen Jingdong was here

Il Giardino Bianco Art Space

09 May 201924 Nov 2019

The exhibition uses the graffiti mark “I was here” often found in contemporary China. It is a common behaviour among travellers to carve it on walls or bamboo with knives or other sharp instruments. Shen Jingdong considers himself a tourist or a bystander looking to leave a trace in one of the most important contemporary art events worldwide: the Venice Biennale. He has filled the exhibition space with balloons to create an almost naive atmosphere and with paintings representing round-eyed kids. The spaces seem crowded and resemble an amusement park aimed at providing the audience with a deeply immersive and creative learning experience while leaving them with a lasting impression. The exhibition is organised and produced in collaboration with We Exhibit.
