Shadows Collide with People” is published on the occasion of the exhibition curated by Stefan Banz in the Swiss Pavilion for the 51st Venice Biennale 2005.
The publication and exhibition introduces four artists, Gianni Motti, Shahryar Nashat, Marco Poloni and Ingrid Wildi, whose common ground in terms of origin and nationality is the special circumstances of their residence in Switzerland. At the same time, the publication poses the question of the concept, the common denominator of a group exhibition that appears as a representation of an identity, a country?At the same time, the publication poses the question of the concept, the common denominator of a group exhibition that appears as a representation of an identity, a country?
“Shadows Collide With People” documents the four artists, each with a text by an author familiar with the work and extensive visual material on the work, thus providing a deeper insight into four exciting, current artistic positions.
Theoretical and philosophical essays revolve around the themes of the exhibition and expand the volume into an independent publication that will continue to exist beyond the exhibition.
