The Invisible Pavilion | 54th International Art Exhibition | Venice Biennale
- Preview: 1-2-3 June 2011

Venice, Giardini and all over the world on the Internet
Press conference and a tour on 1 June at 5pm, Giardini (main
concourse, in the shade near Belgium Pavilion). In partnership with
Manifest.AR.
Curated by Simona Lodi and Les Liens Invisibles  
The art, my friend, is flowing in the wind.
The Invisible Pavilion is a non-invitation, experimental,
hallucinatory augmented reality experience that will run for the
duration of the Venice Art Biennale as a squatted stage on which a
performance flow of artworks will fill the whole area of the Giardini.
The main purpose of the project is to fill the augmented space of the
Biennale with a stream of signs and symbols, in an attempt to emphasize
the ebb and flow of art production in the “always-on” age.
Anyone
with a smart-phone (iPhone or any other Android-based phone and Layar)
will be able to move around the traditional pavilions in the Giardini
area of the Biennale and see, through their phone screens, another
immaterial/invisible exhibition.
For the entire length of the Venice Art Biennale (June–November
2011) a group of selected international artists have been invited to
give their personal contribution to the project, by performing/posting
multimedia pieces that should somehow reinterpret the public space of
the Biennale and its symbolic aura in the field of contemporary art. The
artworks will also be visible on the Internet, on the Invisible
Pavilion website.
As Simona Lodi says in the curatorial text, “The Invisible Pavilion
is a hallucinatory experience of rewriting the world, an encouragement
to increase the whirl and flow of information on invisible r/Reality.
The Invisible Pavilion contains a r/Reality that is open and
spontaneous, drawn and analysed from shared data. The double r reflects
its double connotation—the lower case r refers to the everyday reality
that we all know; the upper case R to a proprietary name, the augmented
Reality that is produced.“

BIO
Simona
Lodi, art critic and curator, lives in Turin. Since 1993 she has been a
contributor to various leading contemporary art journals. Simona's
professional career spans New York, London and Turin—a city that has
embraced the world of new technology and communication. It is in this
context that the Share Festival–Art in the Digital Age, of which Simona
is founder and Art Director, has found fertile ground to grow and
develop.
Les Liens Invisibles is an Italian-based duo of internet artists,
Clemente Pestelli and Gionatan Quintini. Most of their artworks—which
include an online viral mass suicide performance, an hallucinatory
petition service and a series of other works staged on popular social
media platforms—have been exhibited internationally in galleries,
museums (MAXXI Rome, New School of New York, KUMU Art Museum of Talinn)
and international media art festivals (SHARE, Transmediale). Les Liens
Invisibles recently received an honorary distinction at the Transmediale
Media Art Festival (2011).

Repetitionr.com | Tactical media meet data hallucination


Dates:
Fri May 21, 2010 00:00 - Fri May 21, 2010

Today the enemy is not called Empire or Capital.
It's called Democracy."
* Alan Badiou

"Democracy is becoming more an empty ritual,
devoid of the ability to deliver true alternatives
and true choices."
Franco Bifo Berardi

"A lie is the beginning of a new story.
That's why we love Art."
Oscar Wilde

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ONE MAN ONE VOTE?
NO MORE. ONE CLICK IS ENOUGH.
Representational democracy is a thing of the past. Its days are
numbered. Indeed, representation can no longer be said to be
representative. It's time for change. Leave behind your out-moded
street activism, public demonstrations, megaphones. Protest is no
longer to be found on the streets.
Instead get involved in the new global networked euphoria, take your
data-body to its limits and discover how activism can be now carried
out comfortably from your armchair.

EMBRACE THE NEW ERA OF ARMCHAIR-ACTIVISM.
A MILLION PEOPLE CAN'T BE WRONG.
In the post-idealist era the success of a campaign is increasingly
reliant on instantaneous statistical surveys promoted to shift opinion
towards defined positions.
Created by the imaginary art group Les Liens Invisibles - already
known for others internet spoofs like Subvertr.com, A Fake is A Fake
and Seppukoo.com - Repetitionr.com is the ultimate social petition
platform that grants the success of every campaign proposed, offering
the most advanced internet technologies to make participatory
democracy a truely user-centered experience. Just a click and
Repetitionr will fill your petitions with millions of self-generated
fake signatures indistinguishable from the real ones.

TIRED OF WORDS?
JUST PUT REPETITIONR INTO ACTION.
Repetitionr needs just a few clicks to demonstrate its magic: just
create your petition by writing down the title and statement, choose
the number of signatures you want and from which countries they come
from, then simply sit down and enjoy the the power of data
hallucination working on your behalf. Don't be afraid to exaggerate:
Repetitionr will produce up to 1,000,000 signatures!
You are no longer alone in your opinions. Make a Re-Petition and
announce to the world that thousands and thousands of people can't be
wrong!
