OK, Back to Serious
If you’re worried, the worms are fine…
Throughout the Biennial there were red paper flyers, wrinkled up and thrown on the floor. If you picked one up, which I didn’t see many people doing, it was a list of injustices against women in Turkey, including honor killings, by Croatian artist Sanja Iveković.
In one of the school rooms there was an installation by Lado Darakhvelikze called “Ideal Media.” He was born in Kutaisi and lives in Arnhem. (I had no idea where either of these places is. So much for being educated… Georgia, on my list for places to visit.) Funny drawings on chalkboards and little videos, about how media coverage affects events. The school benches were on rockers, a nice touch.
