Haris Epaminonda “VOL. XXVII, 2019” Installation [Venice Biennale]

Cypriot-born, Berlin-based artist Haris Epaminonda plays with form and composition in her award-winning installation at the 58th Venice Biennale – The artist works with found materials such as sculptures, pottery, books, or photographs, which she often combines to carefully construct her characteristic installations.

The image of an ancient Greek vase, a tiny sculpture of a bird, a bonsai tree, a reproduction of Phidias’ horse head from the Parthenon, an array of columns elegantly lined up; these are the carefully chosen items from her VOL. XXVII, 2019 installation still currently on view at the 58th Venice Biennale’s Central Exhibition

The 39 year-old artist has been awarded the Silver Lion for Promising Young Participant at this year’s exhibition and is known for her graceful displays of props that re-contextualize artworks, texts and pictures.

Runs through 24 November 2019 // Central International Exhibition, Arsenale.
