Susan Kleinberg Mounts Installation at Telecom Italia Future Center for the Venice Biennale
"Tierra Sin Males," is a digitally generated video piece that spins, fractures, spirals, spins back faster...
VENICE.- Susan Kleinberg presents her latest projection, “Tierra Sin Males,” during the opening week of the 2009 Venice Biennale at the Telecom Italia Future Centre in the exquisite 16th Century Cloister of San Salvador, designed by Sansovino.

"Tierra Sin Males," is a digitally generated video piece that spins, fractures, spirals, spins back faster, hits, rolls, hesitates, pivots out of balance at the fulcrum, regroups, continues... both with and against any predictable laws of physics or nature. The image distorts, contorts, looks primeval and of the future. The context of the room and its shadows roll and spin, against gravity. Its reverberating sound track in some ways leads it.

The central image is the reflection of a highway sign near the Mexico/US border warning drivers not to hit families as they flee across the road. The title is taken from comments by Adolfo Perez Esquivel, Argentina's Nobel Laureate, concerning utopia and revolving tension.

In the Cloister of San Salvador, the piece will be projected across the piazza (about 35 ft. wide), over the well, onto the Refrectory wall, with its grill-covered windows, augmenting the tension of being confined/released, what one runs from/to.

Ms. Kleinberg's work has been seen in Venice in the 2001 Biennale; and in 2005, projected in Campo S. Stefano in collaboration with the Istituto Veneto. Her piece “Sposalizo del Mar,” floated between San Marco and San Giorgio in “Arte Laguna,” part of the Venice Biennale 1995.

Over the past five years, Ms. Kleinberg developed four high-definition digital projection pieces, BLOOD ROLL, D-ROLL, P-SPIN and A DELICATE BALANCE, with related prints, drawings and paintings. BLOOD ROLL was shown first in November 2004 in Seoul, Korea, in an international show at the Total Museum. In 2005, she showed BLOOD ROLL during the opening of the Venice Biennale in collaboration with the Istituto Veneto. Ms. Kleinberg installed P-SPIN at the Pulkovo Observatory in St. Petersburg, Russia in the fall of 2007, for Pro Arte in an exhibition organized by Olessya Turkina, curator from the Russian State Museum. In 2003, Ms. Kleinberg mounted What Would Make for a Better World, a video installation for “Future Democracy” at the Istanbul Biennial. In 2001, she created Fear Not for the Venice Biennale, curated by Harald Szeemann. It was shown in New York at P.S. 1/MOMA (2001-2002) and was chosen as a Special Project for the Chicago International Art Fair (2002). Ms. Kleinberg showed related paintings and drawings at Venice Design Gallery, Venice, Italy (2001) and a preview installation at the Stark Gallery in New York (2001). In 2002 the piece was shown along with related prints at the Tasende Gallery in Los Angeles and the Tasende Gallery in La Jolla, CA. Sposalizio del Mar, whose reference was to the most important ceremony of the Venetian Republic, the marriage of the Doge to the sea, floated in the Grand Canal between San Marco and San Giorgio, part of "Artelaguna," during the 1995 Venice Biennale. The beginnings of all of this work were shown at the Castelli Gallery in New York.
