Press Release Nordic Pavilion Pavilion of 58th Venice Biennale of Art

The Weather Report: Forecasting Future exhibition in the Nordic Pavilion is dedicated to the complex and varied relationships between the human and the nonhuman in an age where climate change and mass extinction are threatening the future of life on Earth. When imagining the future, human beings must take responsibility for recognizing multi-species plots and the need to renegotiate existing interspecies relationships.

It is often difficult for humans to notice life forms that exist on a scale other than their own, such as microscopic organisms, the slow functioning of toxic agents or lasting processes of decomposing organic matter. By increasing visitors' awareness of the materiality of space and works of art and assimilating their bodies to other life forms, the exhibition attempts to establish a connection with agencies rather than human ones.

The biennial gardens are bordered by the Venetian lagoon, a city infested by tourists, and hub of the mainland industry, all encouraged to contemplate the eco-crisis, the erosion caused by centuries of mass tourism and the survival prospects of the species native lagoon marinas, competing for space with huge cruise ships.

The pavilion itself is susceptible to external conditions. Occasional high tides and weather changes expose the show to unpredictable forces.

Hours: Gardens from 10.00 to 18.00. Arsenale from 10.00 to 18.00 (from 10.00 to 20.00 on Friday and Saturday until September 30th). Closed on Mondays (except May 13, September 2, November 18).
Tickets: please visit the official website. On the web € 21.50 until 31 March 2019.
