This exhibition is one of the many events that lighten Venice’s summer life, using the aura of culture that permeates the city since thousands of years. It’s Disposition by Ai Weiwei, an important artist, designer and Chinese human right activist.
Two artworks by this artist will be exposed in Venice in two different spots of the city. The first one is Straight, a project that remembers the shape of an armor that was made using metal bars recovered from schools destroyed during the earthquake in Sichuan in 2008. This piece is currently found in the Zuecca Project Space.
The second one is called S.A.C.R.E.D. and is found in the Chiesa di Sant’Antonin. It’s a piece that shows the contradictions of modern Chinese life.
