Alfredo Jaar is representing Chile at the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in Venice, Italy. His work is a detailed model of the Biennale Giardini with all the art pavilions, placed in an enormous water tank. In regular intervals, the pavilions slowly sink and reappear again.

Alfredo Jaar was born in Santiago, Chile in 1956. He has lived in New York since 1982. Alfredo Jaar has participated in the Venice Biennale (1986, 2007, 2009), São Paulo Bienal (1985, 1987, 2010), and Documenta in Kassel (1987, 2002).
