July 15, 2015
As a special project within the collateral event Glasstress 2015 GOTIKA of the La Biennale di Venezia, Koen Vanmechelen exhibits a triptych in three locations continuing his exploration of biological and cultural diversity. AWAKENER/LIFEBANK is shown at Palazzo Cavalli-Franchetti, on the Island of Murano at Berengo Studio and outside the artist’s studio in Belgium. This expansive installation intends to raise awareness of our ever-increasing abuse of food production and includes an innovative biological breeding center and restaurant.
