Bodies of Water: La Biennale di Venezia 2023

EPIKYKLOS supported the construction of the Greek pavilion at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia 2023.

The main exhibits are suspended glass surfaces with designs of the beds of important bodies of water all around the country. They hover at various heights, depending on their actual altitude. A podium made of recycled cardboard is presented as a soil laboratory, the country as a construction site. It contains scale models of large dams, with the reworked land as a permanent reconstruction of the country. Drawings of the country’s man-made lakes and a collection of historical and contemporary photographs are on display on the walls of the pavilion. The viewer’s movements activate in situ recorded soundscapes.

Duration of the exhibition: 20/5/2023-26/11/2023
