Venice Biennale travel bursary

I was one of two artists from Cornwall awarded a bursary from Visual Arts South West and A-N, the Artists’ Information Company, enabling me to travel to the Venice Biennale press week in May.

I reviewed the opening of Jeremy Deller’s ‘English Magic’ at The British Pavilion for Interface, the artists’ review section of A-N.

There were many other artists whose work engaged with themes and processes that resonated with me; the trip was incredibly useful for my practice at this stage in my development. I will be posting some more about the Biennale on this blog over the next few months.

My primary focus was on contemporary approaches to video installation, so my highlights included Jesper Just’s ‘Intercourses’ (Danish Pavilion), Richard Mosse’s collateral show for Ireland, Ryan Trecartin’s installations in the Encyclopaedic Palace at The Arsenale and ‘The Workshop’ by Gilad Ratman in the Israeli Pavilion.
