HyperVenezia. The “stones” of Venice on display at Palazzo Grassi
Its gate will reopen for an exhibition dedicated to the city to celebrate its 1600th birthday
After a six-month closure due to maintenance work, Palazzo Grassi will reopen its gate to the public with the exhibit “HyperVenezia”, dedicated to the city of Venice to celebrate its 1600th birthday. The display will showcase for the first time the ambitious “Venice Urban Photo Project”, designed and curated by Mario Peliti. “HyperVenezia”, curated by Matthieu Humery of the Collection Pinault, is scheduled to last until the 9th of January 2022 to offer an immersive route through three installations on the first floor of the Palazzo Grassi:
a linear path through 400 photographs that retrace the perfect itinerary through Venice’s “sestieri” to create a site-specific map of the city. The mosaic consists of 900 geolocalised images that offer a panoramic view of the city, followed by a video installation of 3.000 pictures accompanied by an unreleased soundtrack, specifically composed for the showcase by the famous artist Nicolas Godin.
