2013 venice biennale #6…

P1220285

A simple but effective aesthetic for a complex theme from the Hungarian Pavilion, “Fired but Unexploded”, video installation by Zsolt Asztalos musing on the new narratives formed by unexploded device:

“An Immaterial Retrospective of the Venice Biennale” takes the entire history of the Venice Biennale and re-enacts it, the performers in the Romanian pavilion are recreating their version of a world’s exposition, one hundred years of history in a day, every day.
