    Rudolf Stingel at Palazzo Grassi // Venice Biennale 2013.

    13th June

    Italian-born, New York-based artist, Rudolf Stingel is currently presenting an installation at the Palazzo Grassi, the opulent Venetian estate of billionaire collector François Pinault. The exhibition is conceived by the artist in partnership with Elena Geuna, and it was specifically designed for the 3-storey, 5000 square meter building located on Venice’s Grand Canal. Stingel’s decision to cover all the walls and floors of the entire Palazzio in carpet is an incredibly brave gesture. At times it appears as though the bold, oversized pattern could be seen as distracting from the paintings, although the result is much more profound than that.

    23rd July

    This project is such a wonderful example of what is possible when history, art, architecture and technology unite to create a single grand gesture. After three full years of renovation, Campiello is given a new lease on life, featuring a magnificent Corten steel facade created by art historian Philippe Daverio and artist Giorgio Milani, overseen by the local architecture firm 3ndy Studio.
