Attila Csörgő at 57TH VENICE BIENNIAL - VIVA ARTE VIVA
2017. 05. 13 – 11. 26.
Venice, Arsenale and Giardini venues; curator: Christine Macel
The exhibition Viva Arte Viva offers a route that unfolds over the course of nine chapters or families of artists, beginning with two introductory realms in the Central Pavilion in the Giardini, followed by seven more realms to be found in the Arsenale and the Giardino delle Vergini. There are 120 invited artists from 51 countries; 103 of these are participating for the first time.
“From the “Pavilion of Artists and Books” to the “Pavilion of Time and Infinity”, these nine episodes tell a story that is often discursive and at times paradoxical, with detours that mirror the world’s complexities, a multiplicity of approaches and a wide variety of practices. The exhibition is intended as an experience, an extrovert movement from the self to the other, towards a common space beyond the defined dimensions, and onwards to the idea of a potential neo-humanism.”
The work of Attila Csörgő is located in the trans-pavilion called “Pavilion of Time and Infinity”
