The 59e version of the Venice Biennale began on April 23 and might be held until November 27 for the pleasure of tourists.

An emotional journey by means of the nationwide pavilions at the Giardini and the Arsenale, combining established artists and delightful discoveries.

The Danish pavilion has chosen Uffe Isolotto, a Danish artist born in 1976 who works on the question of the self, the body, sexuality and know-how. His works typically evoke a post-human state through which man becomes alienated by his own technological creations, craving for an virtually inconceivable return to the origins of nature.&

Together with his set up We Walked The Earth, Uffe Isolotto plunges visitors into an in-between world of hyperrealism by embroidering on the theme of mutation.

A unbelievable tale about life and dying, between tragedy and hope.&

Upon getting into, guests discover a seemingly idyllic Danish farmhouse, during which a life-and-death drama affecting a household of centaurs unfolds.

Suicide, delivery, mutation: by way of this household tragedy, Uffe Isolotto appears to evoke the top of a cycle that asserts the beginning of one other. The extinction of a species allowing another type of life to emerge, symbolized by a child centaur lying on the ground, a kind of hybrid totally different from its mother and father.&

Struggling to deal with the challenges of our more and more complicated and unpredictable reality, centaurs embody a state of oscillation between despair and hope, reflecting the profound ambiguity of at the moment’s world
