Daniel von Sturmer: The Object of Things / Australian Pavilion / 52nd Biennale di Venezia

Daniel von Sturmer represents Australia at the 52nd International Art Exhibition, the Biennale di Venezia 2007. Daniel von Sturmer was born 1972 in Auckland, New Zealand, he lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. The work he presents at the Australian Pavilion is very aesthetic and elegant. Or as the press release puts it: “With The Object of Things, von Sturmer continues his ‘experiments with space’, he has constructed video installations and architectural interventions especially designed for the Australian Pavilion in the Giardini. These new works aim to test how it is we see what we see, bringing the unique spaces of the Pavilion into play. Video sequences confound viewers’ sense of space, scale and orientation through experiments with gravity and weightlessness, movement and stillness.” 52nd International Art Exhibition, Biennale di Venezia 2007, June 9, 2007.
