Falling Trees

55 International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia

The exhibition presented in this catalogue was inspired by an unexpected incident. A tree fell on the Finnish Aalto Pavillion in 2011 an the exhibition had to be closed. What was originally an inconvenience became a source of inspiration for three curators from Finnland.

The Biennal is an art resort: it comprises a series of presentations that are cut off from the natural environment.

The Finnish projects at the Biennale Arte 2013 question the artifical closing off art; the strict relation between inside (the pavilion) and outside (the park).
