Biennale Arte 2024 in Venice: Austria’s pavilion is designed by Anna Jermolaewa

The Penultimate, 2017, Installation. Anna Jermolaewa mit Kuratorin Gabriele Spindler

The Austrian Pavilion at the Biennale Arte 2024 in Venice is designed by Anna Jermolaewa and curated by Gabriele Spindler.

In her work, the artist, who was born in Leningrad (USSR) and has lived in Vienna since 1989, has demonstrated again and again that she is a keen observer of human life, its societal conditions and political preconditions. For the Austrian contribution, Jermolaewa covers a broad spectrum ranging from her personal migration experiences to forms of non-violent resistance against authoritarian regimes.

The presentation shown at the Pavilion will comprise videos, installations, luminous objects and sound as well as performative elements combining newly developed works and extensions of existing works of the artist.

Andrea Mayer, State Secretary for Arts and Culture:

"The Venice Biennale is the most significant art exhibition worldwide and impressively demonstrated its eminent standing last year. The show continues to make a vital contribution to the aesthetic as well as social-policy, cultural and intercultural discourse. It is good and important that Austria has a strong presence at the Biennale and makes a crucial contribution to this international exhibition of contemporary art. It is precisely for this reason that I am highly pleased that the Austrian contribution will showcase particularly topical and relevant positions in 2024."
