Details of the Swiss Pavilion exhibition revealed

For the 59th International Art Exhibition  – La Biennale di Venezia (23 April - 21 November 2021) the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia appointed artist Latifa Echakhch to represent Switzerland at Biennale Arte 2022. Echakhch conceived and realized the exhibition titled The Concert in collaboration with percussionist and composer Alexandre Babel and curator Francesco Stocchi.

The exhibition plays with harmonies and dissonances, with the mixed feelings of expectation, fulfilment and disappearance. The sculptures are part of an orchestrated and enveloping experience, a rhythmic and spatial proposal that allows viewers to experience a fuller perception of time and of their own body.

“We want visitors to leave the exhibition with the same feeling they have when they come out of a concert. That this rhythm, those fragments of memory, still echo,” says Latifa Echakhch. “The Biennale is an eruption of artistic greatness every time. A wave that culminates in a cathartic grandeur only to then recede, leaving a deserted landscape of abandoned buildings.”
