Wednesday 10th June: Venice Biennale by Anna Leader Part III

"Representing New Zeland was london based artist Francis Uprichard whose exhibition entitled Save Yourself was a visionary landscape, alluding to the hallucinatory works of medieval artists like Hieronymus Bosch and Erasmus Grasser. The small scale sculptures were searchers, dreamers, dancers – consumed by acts of meditation or lost in reverie. Placed on table-like wooden platforms they overtooked the chambers of the slightly decadent Palazzo Mangilli-Valmarana allowing one to observe them at close hand."

"In a perhaps similar vein was Hans-Peter Feldmann's collection of automated bits of found objects that moved creating shadows on the opposing wall giving a totally new narrative. "
