The second phase in Acute Art’s collaboration with Phi, sees two further works go on view alongside Marina Abramović’s Rising which has been on view since the Venice Biennale opened in May.
The works to debut in July are Anish Kapoor’s Into Yourself, Fall and Olafur Eliasson’s Rainbow.
The works on display in the gallery will disturb the baroque environment of the Ca’ Rezzonico on the shores of the Grand Canal.
The first encounter with virtual reality for the artist Anish Kapoor, who offers us a visceral work where the spectators see themselves drawn through the human body, to the point of falling inside themselves. This experience of corporeality imitates the sensations of vertigo and depicts the complexities in everyone’s heart.
Olafur Eliasson’s long-standing interest in the relationship between self vs. others and self vs. the environment profoundly influences Rainbow—an ephemeral natural phenomenon generated by a digital process. A major innovation, the multi-user function opens the way to new spaces for and towards virtual reality in art.
Marina Abramović‘s first virtual reality work which was presented during the initial program, and will continue to be shown throughout, is a poetic and disturbing call to action. Rising exposes spectators to the effects of rising sea levels in order to make them more responsible in the face of climate change.
Further works to be displayed will be announced in August.
