Venice Biennale 2013 Part III

Summer is winding down and August is a good time to visit other parts of the globe and get a little perspective before what looks like a very busy Portland September. Here is Part III of Mack Mcfarland's photo tour of the 2013 Venice Biennale. You can find parts I and II here.

Representing Canada Shery Boyle's The Cave Painter features a mermaid in a grotto... which goes from slightly gothic almost cryptlike situation into a psychedelic Lascaux (all photos Mack Mcfarland)

Tsivopoulos1.jpg
Representing Greece was Stefanos Tsivopoulos. Greece is both drowning in history and present day economic turmoil so the title of the piece, "History Zero," seemed like a moment to step back and assess.
