Foundation, Pavilion of Iceland, 55th Venice Biennial, 2013, 6/13/2013 – 11/30/2013

A site specific commission for the Icelandic Pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale, traveling to the Reykjavík Art Museum and SculptureCenter.

A large-scale installation comprising a raised ornamental surface, mapping out the floor of an imaginary 18th century pavilion. Conceived as a trilogy of installations.; at Palazzo Zenobio’s lavanderia in Venice, the work intersected with the walls of an ancient laundry. In Iceland, the work was located at the museum’s Harbor House, an old warehouse in downtown Reykjavik. In New York, it occupied the vast gallery of SculptureCenter, which in earlier times was a trolley-repair facility for the subway system.
