Some press updates on Zilvinas Kempinas, who, as reported here, is representing Lithuania at the Venice Biennale this summer with his show-stopping installation ‘Tube’.
Zilvinas has been garnering many favorable press reviews, including numerous Biennale critic’s picks:
First off, read Laura McLean Ferris’ excellent 2-page article in June’s Art Review magazine here; and also an extended interview by Selina Ting with the artist in the inaugural issue of the online initiArt Magazine here.
Le Figaro, in an article that awarded special ‘Palmes’ to individual works and pavilions in the Biennale, gave Zilvinas the ‘Space-Time Palme’, lauding its glorious spatio-temporal warping of the architecture of the Scuola Grande della Misericordia.
There is a great video walk-through available on vernissage.tv, and that is pretty-much it – for now. ‘Tube’ continues at the Scuola Grande della Misericordia in Canareggio, Venice through November 22nd. Read more on the show here along with installation shots and opening day shots.
