Venezia (all places contain all others) by Aleksandra Mir, 2011. Courtesy of the artist.
Aleksandra Mir, artista polacca, ha creato questo carosello copia-e-incolla "semiserio" di cartoline Veneziane, mescolando paesaggi stupendi con grafiche "zuccherose" kitsch, una meditazione sulla relazione anomala che ha la città con la pubblicità . un posto senza pubblicità che pubblicizza solo se stesso.
Aleksandra Mir, artist from Poland, creates a cut-and-paste carousel of tongue-in-cheek Venetian postcards, combining gorgeous landscapes with candy-coloured kitsch in a mediation on the city’s anomalous relationship with advertising - a place without adverts that advertises only itself.
As featured in Commercial Break, a video art intervention for the 54th Venice Biennale curated by Neville Wakefield, produced by the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture and powered by POST. Featuring the work of over 130 artists, Commercial Break is a constantly reforming and randomly sequenced stream of artist’s ideas, suggesting a world in which content moves at the speed of advertising and attention itself is the ultimate product.
