While traveling through Venice, my number one priority was spending as much time as possible at the 2015 Venice Biennale. I spent three days stuffing myself with art: one day at the Arsenale, one day at Giardini, and one day hunting out the free venues peppered around Venice. I was so lucky to see Ursula von Rydingsvard’s work installed in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. She has long been my favorite sculptor, yet I hadn’t seen her work in person. It was an unexpected sighting, materializing on a walk along the south edge of Venice. After the initial gasp and fan-girling (as well as a few tears), I calmed down and was able to really enjoy examining her work up-close. This Biennale is so massive, so eclectic, so compelling that to describe it in a simple blog post would taint the memory. The exhibitions are so big, the only way to make it through it all is by only stopping to look at a piece if it truly interests you. Projectors, new technology, and elaborate installations seemed to dominate; only a few countries presented paintings and photos. The experience left me with a mess of pamphlets and a whirling mind of new ideas to explore.
