Venice - National Participation

Albania 2016

Arsenale, Albania Pavilion

28 May 201627 Nov 2016

“I Have Left You the Mountain” seeks to “evoke places and loss through polifonic singing, or multi part lyric,” and to display a theme of displacement and migration, both of which have been prevalent in Albanian history, and recent European events. Through minimalism, the Pavilion will encourage people to think, and fill the space with personal memories, silence, and music. The program additionally includes performances, lectures, a book, and a record on displacement and migration.

Exhibitors: Etel Adnan, Mourid Barghouti, Michel Butor, Claire Fontaine, Yona Friedman, Anri Sala, Michael Taussig, Yanis Varoufakis, Ornela Vorpsi, Finn Williams
