Venice - National Participation

Brazil 2019

Giardini

11 May 201924 Nov 2019

Title: “Swinguerra”
Curator: Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro
Commissioners: José Olympio da Veiga Pereira, Fundação Bienal de São Paulo
Artists: Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca

The show consists of a two-channel video installation featuring the film commissioned for the occasion and, in the smaller room, a site-specific installation with portraits of the participants of the new work. The pavilion thus reflects, in two different mediums, the same artwork. Swinguerra takes the hybrid form of a musical documentary that creates an ambiguous space where fictional and documentary dimensions are blended, creating a third territory of language.
