"Simon Denny, Secret Power" at the New Zealand Pavilion at the International Art Biennial, Venice.
Shared between the contemporary space of the Marco Polo airport and the prestigious Biliboteca Nazionale Marciana, the New Zealand Pavilion at the 56th International Art Biennial in Venice gives a blank canvas to Simon Denny.
With this double project, entitled Secret Power, the artist aims to highlight the key challenges of the ownership of knowledge and its geographic distribution in the background of the current “post-Snowden” era. He particularly endeavours to show the importance of certain types of language, both new and obsolete, in order to map out geopolitical spaces and the roles played by technology and invention.
Until 22nd November.
