|Andorran Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia features works by Eve Ariza|
Murmuri is a reflection on universal language.
VENICE.- The artist selected to represent the Principality of Andorra is Eve Ariza. Born in France in 1973, she perfected her mastery of ceramics in Limoges (France). Through ceramics and activist events, Ariza's works are a constant meditation on the evolution of human communication.
Her installation, Murmuri, is a reflection on universal language, an in-depth study of changes in material and the origins of form and sound. She works on reproducing the bowl as a container of truth and a sensory experience through its natural resonance. She purposely tears its base to reveal a mouth-like shape, thus transforming its essence and dismissing its conventional use.
The project carries on the artist's battle against bla, the concept of overconsumption and overfeeding on images and sounds as tangibly the sole foundation of today's society. The installation becomes a sensory experience as each bowl reveals its own natural resonance. Liberated from the burden of any explicit narrative content, the work primarily provokes an intense physical dialogue with the viewer.
The Andorran Pavilion at the 57th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia is located next to the Santa Maria Della Pietą Institute, a former convent, orphanage and music academy. The church was built in the 18th century by Giorgio Massari and was not only used as a place of worship but also as a concert hall. The Italian Baroque composer, Antonio Vivaldi, worked there as the choir director, writing many cantata and teaching at the seminary.
The church is situated in the Castello neighbourhood in front of the Grand Canal and the Riva degli Schiavoni, a five-minute walk from Piazza San Marco. The Pavilion has two separate entrances. The main one opens from the side of the church on to Della Pietą street and the second one can be reached from inside the church itself.
The site has held many pavilions before, such as the New Zealand Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia in 2013. The Zimbabwe Pavilion was also located in the churchs outbuildings in 2011.
