Recycle Group: Conversion
Official Collateral Event of the 56. International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia
6 May – 22 Nov, 2015
Campo Sant’Antonin, Castello, Venice
At the Sant’Antonin church’s hall, Recycle Group presents a large-scale installation — the ruins of the churches of 21st century with semi-derelict sculptures of the “saints”, the preachers of the new technologies disseminated by the interfaces of popular gadgets; on the central bas-relief there are crowds by figures trying to get onto the web with they mobile devices. The atmosphere of religious worship of technologies is enhanced by the frames of advertising billboards depicting instructions — the commandments for the use of the main programmes and servers. The video of production and overview of the project production and idea are included into the show. The video also includes interviews with the artists, leading international curators and gallerists discussing the essence of Recycle Group’s project and oeuvre.
