ILLUMINAZIONI: a warning Biennale


What’s next?It seems the obvious question, a visitor carries with him at the time of the visit to the Biennale d’Arte italiana for excellence according to the tradition, namely that of Venice. A Biennial that is expected to meet the creativity of the world, new lights that will brighten the future of the Art World. Or maybe not, despite the title?

A good time to visit the Biennale is the end of October. There is huge, and you can visit the section “GIARDINI” as well as where it stands “ARSENALE”, with a calm. So I did, having the good fortune to avoid annoying winter rains.

I was appalled to find all the pavilions “Westerners” a kind of sense of alarm for our present and future. Very poor color artifacts, mostly related to past dictatorial or violent and alarming silence without explosions of lights or creativity.

Some exception? States and Sweden no less maudlin of other exhibitors however. Very pleasant discovery of places such as India or China, puffs of oxygen in a dangerously homogeneous and gray otherwise.

Perhaps the Lighting is to reflect, in rediscovering the value of individual meditation on tomorrow, which still wants to give joy and beauty but apparently hidden in very dense fogs.


About Odile Milton

I travel through words whenever possible. Odile Milton is my signature on the web as I wanted an alter ego to indicate only my writings and works, not my personal life. Odile like the dancer in black swan, and Milton from the novel An old-fashioned girl. View all posts by Odile Milton
