> DESCRIPTION

The ideal location of the Gervasuti Foundation - equidistant from both
Giardini and Arsenale, Venice Biennale’s main locations – Whitney McVeigh,
in her piece ‘Hunting Song’, will transform an existing charity shop into an
installation housing her own work and collection of objects. The work will
address both individual and cultural identity and memory.
The interdisciplinary programming of this stimulating space is based
on the belief ‘that the local and international are two forces which may
be cooperative instead of antagonistic’. The social public space fosters
engagement between the international artist, local community and tourist
alike, readdressing the cultural context of the work, and revitalising the area
whilst retaining its authentic craft-centric history - retaining and expanding
cultural memory.
