For the Slovak Pavilion at the 53rd International Art Exhibition Biennale di Venezia, Roman Ondák has developed a work that deals with the relationship between reality and art. Roman Ondák takes the park landscape between the exhibition pavilions in Venice’s Giardini Publici with their bushes, trees and paths, and replicates and places it in the interior of the pavilion. So the external reality continues into the art space. The path to the pavilion leads without interruption or obstacles into the building on one side, crosses through it and leads out of it again on the other side.
Roman Ondák was born in 1966 in Zilina, Slovakia. He is currently considered one of the most significant representatives of neo-conceptual strategies. He was a DAAD scholarship holder in Berlin (2007-2008) and has presented his work in group shows and individual exhibitions such as at Tate Modern (2006) and the Museum of Modern Art (2009). Roman Ondák lives and works in Bratislava, Slovakia.
