Share this news


University of the Arts Helsinki organises
 a Research Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale. The pavilion is dedicated to research and will consist of an international contemporary art exhibition and a platform for events, both featuring artistic research. The dynamic between artistic research and contemporary art will be explored through the theme of experimentality. Research is one of the focus areas of the University, and the Pavilion will feature fine arts, dance, music and theatre. The exhibition in the Research Pavilion includes Finnish and other European artists.

Heli Rekula’s exhibition/book In Hemingways Garden’s “The Venice edition” consists of a small fragment of the original project, the book and a freely selected excerpt from archives that relates to Hemingway’s stays in Venice and Veneto. Setting photographic art alongside documentary and historical material, the work in its entirety is also an investigation of the functions ascribed to photography.
