Personal Structures - Open Borders


During the 2017 Venice art Biennale, 
the European Cultural Centre will host:

"PERSONAL STRUCTURES - open borders"
at Palazzo Mora, Palazzo Bembo and Giardini Marinaressa
Exhibitions open on 13 May (Preview 11-12 May) - 26 November 2017.
Open daily from 10:00 to 18:00, except Tuesdays.

In the context of the Venice Art Biennale 2017, the GAA Foundation presents the exhibition "PERSONAL STRUCTURES – open borders". The exhibition is hosted and supported by the European Cultural Centre
The GAA Foundation’s exhibition "PERSONAL STRUCTURES – open borders" shows the commonness and differences between Europeans in dialogue with works of non-Europeans. In addition, the exhibition stimulates a more conscious relationship from the spectator towards his daily surrounding aiming to increase the awareness of their own personal Existence as human beings influenced by a specific Culture within Time and Space.

Its an honour to exhibit my work with such an extensive combination of internationally established artists and artists whose works are less well-known. I hope you manage to visit this exhibition. The works I submitted on this exhibition are of the savages series.
