Slowly, Quietly

“Slowly Quietly” is an exhibition of the work of 16 Seychellois artists, collectively known as Group Sez.

The collective presents present a ‘creep’ of 16 life-size Seychelles giant tortoises, each individually customised to bring aspects of Seychelles’s environment and culture to Venice. The 16 diverse creeps, together present a snapshot of Seychelles today, with the common visual denominator being a creature that appears out of time; whose pace and habits are out of synch with human lives which, even in the relative calm of Seychelles, are squeezed and rushed.
