Title: petticoat government

Commissioner: Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles Wallonie-Bruxelles International

Artists: Denicolai & Provoost, Antoinette Jattiot, Nord and Speculoos

For the 60th Venice Biennale, Belgium presents “petticoat government“, a party to which all are invited. Inspired by the living base of popular narrative, petticoat government diverts the symbolic and political weight of the giant as object. Since May 2023, on both sides of the Franco-Belgian border, various brother-and-sisterhoods, committees and associations, all guardians of folkloric giants have been approached by “petticoat government” collective. In a collaborative way they have seized a scenario that plays on scale and tensions between the human being, the pavilion, the landscape and the gigantic.
