"Beneath" by Susanne Stemmer at Biennale Arte Venice 2017
On the occasion of the 57th La Biennale di Venezia,
the European Cultural Centre and the GAA Foundation present at Palazzo Mora : "Beneath", a video installation by the artist Susanne Stemmer. In cooperation with Wide Painting.
This video installation revolves around 3 themes :
Time Under water, the notion of time doesn’t exist. It is a radical change from the life above the surface where every minute is calculated according to a planning. This absence of time allows us to escape from our reality and bring us to travel into our thoughts.
Space Loosing our gravity, our body is able to fly in space. This total freedom of movement brings us to reconsider the notion of space itself. Used to live with the gravity, we discover here how it feels to fly over the existence as a soul and not as a body.
Existence Underwater silence, closing our eyes and released from our material body, we are finally able to think about this existence, our existence.
