Sergey Shabohin’s works on Belarusian Pavilion 53 Venice Biennale, 2009

 

 

 

The artist has produced four series of works for Belarusian Pavilion 53 Venice Biennale which became a protest of the Belarusian unofficial artistic circle against the reluctance of the authorities to prepare Belarus for participation in this Biennale. The self-proclaimed Belarusian pavilion became the significant event in Minsk and has attracted the attention of the authorities. Due to its implementation – Belarus will be first presented in 2011 in Venice. The works have generated interest of the public and the professional jury — the artist became the winner in both categories: “The Choice of the Spectator” and “The Choice of the Jury”.
