‘Transiens Nostrum’, is a unique visual and sound installation by awarded artists Christina Nakou and Anna Pangalou which is being presented from 16 to 26 November 2023 as part of the ‘Bodies of Water’ exhibition within the Greek pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale.

Visconti is a curatorial advisor for the fair, as well as curator of "the human condition", a project of films and videos by artists formulated and produced in dialogue with Gallerie d’Italia – Torino, the host location.

Ebun Sodipo: A Journey Through the Debris of Images
Back in Basel, and now in its last week, Vitrine presents the first exhibition in Switzerland of emerging artist Ebun Sodipo, who works across performance, film, sculpture and collage, and narrates constructions of a black transfeminine self after slavery and colonialism through visual assemblages. ‘On the Edge of a Sheen Cut’ presents a new body of wall-based sculptural works in resin and mylar showing images from the artist’s visual archive. The archive is an exploration into what she describes as her own formation of personal narrative, self-possession and the aestheticisation of compositional materials that reflect ideas around transformation, desire and sexuality.

Laurent Grasso: On the Limits Between Fiction and Reality
Laurent Grasso (born in 1972 in Mulhouse, France) lives and works between Paris, France and New York, New York, USA. Located at the intersection of heterogeneous temporalities, geographies, and realities, Grasso’s films, sculptures, paintings, and photographs immerse the viewer in an uncanny world of uncertainty. The artist creates mysterious atmospheres that challenge the boundaries of what we perceive and know. Anachronism and hybridity play an active role in his strategy, which entails diffracting reality in order to recompose it according to his own rules. Fascinated by the way in which various powers can affect human conscience, Grasso seeks to grasp, reveal, and materialise the invisible, from collective fears to politics to electromagnetic or paranormal phenomena. His work reveals what lies behind common perception and offers us a new perspectiveon history and reality.

Yann Bronder: Tu m’as reproché en fait ce que tu faisais avec moi sans que je ne le sache. Top.
On the occasion of Brussels Gallery Weekend and the 50th anniversary of Baronian, the oldest gallery in Brussels, we interviewed artist Yann Bronder. Born in 1990 in Belgium, she studied at KASK in Ghent and holds a master’s degree in Fine Arts from LUCA in Brussels. Bronder does not work in series, she works in time slots and works on several works simultaneously. Each work is an occasion for something new, for something unprecedented. As a result, Bronder’s works are not limited to one theme or one context.

Giorgia Severi: Climax #5 Venice
On the occasion of the eighth ‘Vetrina‘, Vino Vero presents a site-specific work by Giorgia Severi, an Italian artist working on environmental and landscape issues. Her multimedia artistic research is based on archiving endangered landscapes, including natural spaces and cultural practices. “Climax #5 Venice” poses the question whether the climax, which is the condition of maximum equilibrium and growth of an ecosystem, is not perhaps at the point of involution.

Exploring the Artistic and Cultural Heritage of Uzbekistan: An Interview with Gayane Umerova
In just three years, Uzbekistan has cemented its place in the Venice Biennale, with each presentation more intriguing than the last. From the initial debut in 2021 with "Mahalla — Urban Rural Living" curated by Christ&Gantenbein, the country has maintained its presence at the Arsenale, next to the Italian Pavilion. Last year's "Dixit Algorizmi — The Garden of Knowledge" was looking at the origins of algorithms and computation, curated by Space Caviar and Sheida Ghomashchi. And this year, the pavilion promises to delve deep into archives and the future of sustainable architecture with "Unbuild Together: Archaism vs. Modernity". We sat down with Gayane Umerova, the commissioner of the Uzbekistan National Pavilion in Venice, to get a behind-the-scenes look at this year's enthralling presentation.
