53rd Venice Biennale 2009

Pagan Religion as a human need expressed through the art

di Claudio Simeoni


The artists exposing at the 53rd Venice Biennale and their artworks interpreted through Pagan Religion.

The ancient Greeks used to say that art can make people closer to the comprehension of the Gods in life.

Those artists in Venice demonstrated this:

1) Bees like Men and men like bees Artworks by Antonio Infantino and Santina Nocerino

2) Australian Aborigines: a history of freedom for every population Artworks by Vernon Ah Kee at the Venice Biennale

3) Life, globalization, urban environment Artworks by Hsieh Ying-Chun, Chen Chieh-Jen and Chien-Chi Chang presented by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum in Taiwan

4) Boy with frog Sculpture by Charles Ray

5) Goce Nanevski

6) Bride dresses deflored Artworks by Melissa Wauchope, in art Damson

7) The Human will that emerges from the indistinct Artworks by Fathiya Tahiri and Mahi Binebine

8) Consciousness and Enlightenment Artworks by Issam Darwich and Yasser Hammoud

9) The infinite anguish of immobility caused by guilt-feeling Artworks by Francis Bacon

10) Africa as Mother of Life: old people and nostalgia. Artworks by Yvette Berger Owanto

11) Buddhist ideology in art at the 53rd Venice Biennale Works by Atta Kim and Lee Sun Don

12) Decline and abandon at the Venice Biennale. The present as an absolute in the individual's perception Artworks by Martin Boyce

13) Witchcraft's life and knowledge at the 53rd Venice Biennale Artworks by Woojung Chunn

So the Venice Biennale showed, once again, that the culture in which the artist lives is not so important, but itís the art expressed by him/her that can arise in us those emotions that link us to the world in which we live.
