The Seek to Believe
binocular series, arranged between the island’s entrance and the woods, will show you the path to follow to reach the so-called Sculptures Habitat
, where the (Art) hunt begins.
In the walled woods in the East area of La Certosa park, are hiding some Lone Stone Men
who traveled 11,440 km from Namibia to reach La Biennale.
The binoculars intervention is a tribute by the creative duo Amebe
in collaboration with RENN
, conceived during the creation of the exhibition, in a moment when it was not yet sure whether RENN and their Artworks could have physically made it to Venice, in the middle of the pandemic and consequent obstacles.
The binoculars, all pointed south, towards Namibia, precisely at Lat. 24.2889 ° S and Long. 15.2605 ° E, want to be an emotional kaleidoscope that plays with memories, expectations and the yet unknown, to further implement that Bridge to the Desert
that the Pavilion invokes.
It is an invitation to "seek to believe" or "try to believe", because without research there can’t be discovery of a "belief" and vice versa. Lenses are artifacts that distort vision to bring the image closer, while the imagination can be a lens for the soul that brings concepts and perhaps cultures closer.
"If these stone and iron sculptures manage to be so dynamic, light and sinuous, so must be able to be our thoughts and ideals, towards an increasingly pure and uncontaminated world."
