2019 Venice Biennale preview weekend “Use Stream"

2019-05-10 13.09.28

"The Performance I made at the Venice Biennale preview weekend is about global warming, it took place on a spot which floods when the oceans get to over flowing.  

The garments that were laid on the ground which floods were made from material that were thrown away at garment manufacturing factories.  

My performance was one of placing these fabrics on the ground where global warming floods take place, additionally as people approached me to ask why the garments were on the ground, I explained to people about how designers are throwing away massive quantities of fabric causing pollution through its disposal and production.  

In addition I spoke of ways the off-cut fabrics can be used to create garments and utilitarian objects like rag rugs.  Also if more designers employ zero waste designs and or analyze their production layout schemes including the vertical much less fabric would be put in the discard bins".  Melissa Lockwood

About Pavilion 02

Pavilion 0, whose first edition took place at Palazzo Dona in Campo San Polo in 2013, initiated the presence of a national pavilion represented by 25 artists from around the world at the Biennale di Venezia divided into national pavilions, expressing the nineteenth concept of the upcoming cultures of European countries and outside the world. The 21st century is a post-global reality, parallel worlds: analog and virtual. Identity found itself at the crossroads between the physical body and the cloud. In connection with OBE (out of body experience) there is the phenomenon of exteriorization, the transfer of consciousness to another dimension. Art that is not permanently associated with any medium, explores and creates reality, confronts man with unconventional experiences. Pavillion 02 refers to oxygen, an element present in matter, water and air, which is a condition for the existence of life. Referring to the concept of GAD – “take care of your garden”, we are interestedin living in the dimension of bio and cyber space meaning new utopias of our civilization. \
