On display in Venice

The work of New Zealand artists Judy Millar (above) and Francis Upritchard (below) at the 53rd International Venice Biennale is beautifully showcased in a photographic essay by Ronnie Peters on his blog RonnieWorld. “Artist Judy Millar displays her paintings in the interior of the Neo-Classical structure La Maddalena,” said Peters. “The exhibition ‘Giraffe-Bottle-Gun’ instigates a lively dispute with the venue in which it intrudes, between the great history of Venetian painting and this contemporary practice.” Sculptor, Francis Upritchard’s installation ‘Save Yourself’, “includes clusters of figures situated on table-like wooden platforms extending out from the base of giant antique mirrors within the three chambers within the Fondazione Claudio Buziol at the Palazzo Mangilli-Valmarana.” The Biennale which opened on June 7, runs through November 22.
