OPENINGS: FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES
It’s LIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival
Venice Art House & Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi – August 04, 2016

It’s LIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Art House and Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, is proud to announce the openings of:

FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES, the second appointment of BORDERS, International Art and Architecture Festival, that will be hosted in Venice, at Venice Art House and Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, from August 04 to September 29, 2016, during the same period of the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale.

The openings of FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES will be on August 04, 2016 in both venues at Venice Art House and Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi in Venice, starting from 06:00 PM (free entry).

FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES – Human identities are both separated and related one to another into a big mosaic that complete the existence and the world culture. All the identities can be considered as fragmented pieces of human being, ready to be unique and shareable in a universe with physical limits. In art people are mixed together in a melting pot of sensation and fluctuating emotions. The challenge is to see all those fragmented identities, recognize and use them to see things through many different points of view and imagination in order to broke all barriers and boundaries of every day’s life and to create the relationship between man and space, including man-built and natural spaces. There is not a unique perspective on our unconscious beings and identities, showing how things are rarely whole or perfect.

Venice Art House is an art gallery located in Venice (Cannaregio 1863C), with a dimension of 250 sqm and two water entrances. Starting from the opening of the space, It’s LIQUID Group, under the direction of Luca Curci, in collaboration with the director of the gallery, Andrea Chinellato, has organized several exhibitions monthly.

Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi (Cannaregio 4132, Venice) is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal. It is easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.
