Venice Biennale: Vita Vitale — Paul Huxley at the Azerbaijan Pavilion


The official Azerbaijan Pavilion for the 56th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia 2015

Vita Vitale (Vital Life) considers how human activity impacts upon the delicate balance of our planet’s ecosystem, and the repercussions for our future survival. Illuminating the ways in which we have transformed the planet, the exhibition explores the effects of plastic pollutants, mass consumerism, climate change, depleting resources, deteriorating landscapes, rising sea levels, and endangered species. While some of the exhibition’s artists and scientists directly address environmental concerns, others do so more laterally. However, they all challenge us to confront the potential dangers of ignoring the messages that Vita Vitale conveys, while simultaneously suggesting creative tools and ideas for change.
