Climate change and headless idols in Venice

Probably felt the distribution of the golden lion to the Lithuanian pavilion at the venice biennale in both highly symbolic and somewhat comical. Last week's opening was marked by for the season unusually cold, windy and rainy weather. And so invites the Lithuanian pavilion ”Sun & Sea (Marine)” on a fake beach with the artificial sun!!! Here unfolds an opera on the theme of climate change and tourism, which involves the singers and the optional extras from the city.

but last Sunday it was so satisfyingly comical when the police stormed into the Campo de la Celestia, after an alarm. According to The Art Newspaper had over a hundred people queued for the Lithuanian pavilion for hours in the rain, when a quarrel broke out and an aggressive man pulled out a device with a button. Fixed bombhotet turned out to be false, and the performance should now be carried out every Saturday during the biennial (t o m 24/11).

however, events outdoors, which was canceled because of the storm, but myself I go with on a performancevandring in the sprinkling rain, where both the actors as the audience their with an umbrella. It did not so much, for Catalonia's contribution to the venice biennale is so sharp, whimsical and anti-separatistiskt.

”To loose your head (Idols)” investigating attacks against the monuments but also the use of the sculptures as gathering places for folk manifestations. During the performancevandringen we got to travel in the imagination to Barcelona, with a ”living sculpture” with the help of us spectators staged everything from the beheading of a Francoskulptur to sorgeritualen for the late fotbollsidolen Johan Cruyff.
