a CONIGLIOVIOLA project 
54. BIENNALE di VENEZIA. THE STATELESS PAVILLION
MAY 31 / JUNE 06 _ 2011
  • THE STATELESS PAV




    “The Stateless Pavilion” is the title of the first Pirate Camp: an invitation to focus on the theme of extraterritoriality seen as a natural and necessary condition for being-an-artist.
    A theme which finds it symbolical representation in the project’s two key-figures: the pirate and the encamped

    The status of not-belonging-to-any-place (wheter real, common, cultural or symbolical), living on the edge, on the one hand consigns the artist to a condition of marginality, on the other it grants him a privileged point of view in representing and discussing the world.

    The statelessness theme earns a special meaning when related to the context of La Biennale di Venezia, whose absolute peculiarity resides in the representation of national identities.

    The Stateless Pavillion project will develop as follows:

    • _the 16 pirate-camp artists will be invited to develop specific art projects related to the theme
    • _the 16 pirate-camp artists will follow a dedicated seminar with relevant international guests which will also be open to an external public audience.

    keywords: piracy, extraterritoriality, statelessness, non-belonging
