Pivot Irrigation #1, 2013
This year marks Azerbaijan's second participation in the 56th
International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia, supported by
the Heydar Aliyev Foundation. For Biennale Arte 2015, Azerbaijan
presents two exhibitions for international audiences that celebrate
the voices of artists addressing social, political, and ecological
questions of global relevance.
Vita Vitale examines the delicate balance of our
planet's ecosystem and the human impact on the natural world. It
brings together contemporary artists from Austria, Canada, France,
Italy, The Netherlands, Pakistan, Romania, Switzerland, UK, USA,
Uzbekistan, and Azerbaijan - a presentation spanning the borders of
language, cultural heritage, and geography - to raise awareness
about our environment and the global transformation of the planet
through human activity.
