On the occasion of the 59th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, Cabrita is presenting 'Field', a large-scale sculpture which will dominate the vast interior of Chiesa di San Fantin in Venice.
This work consists of an indeterminate grid of steel platforms which evoke the passerelle used during acqua alta conditions in the city. Complete within its boundaries, a multitude of uniform LED light tubes burn steadily on these platforms, underneath the occlusion of debris that appears to have rained down from above.
The exhibition is organised in collaboration with KEWENIG, Magazzino, Mai 36, and Sprovieri. A 160 page full-colour illustrated catalogue with texts by Michael Short and Sir Nicholas Serota will be published by Skira to accompany the exhibition.
