- Darwin's Room I LA BIENNALE DI VENEZIA
- May 9, 2015 - November 22, 2015
- LA BIENNALE DI VENEZIA, Giardini, Venice, Italy
The Romanian Pavilion at the Biennale di Venezia will showcase paintings by Adrian Ghenie (b.1977, Baia Mare). Darwin's Room curated by Mihai Pop is organized across three rooms—according to the original interior architecture of the Pavilion (from 1938)—and will comprise a specific theme for each of these rooms: The Tempest, The Portrait Gallery (Self-portrait as Charles Darwin), and The Dissonances of History. Expanding upon Darwin's laboratory, Ghenie proposes an interpretive path into the notion of survival. He reads into the theory of biological evolutionism and the ways it has been skewed to transform societies.
