The connection between La Biennale (as a ‘supermarket’) and National Pavilions (as ‘products’) is an analogy which the Latvian Pavilion at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in Venice (Italy) explores.
“Find everything for your desires, visions, and needs in TC Latvija’s idea shop, a space where all ideas meet and find place on the same shelf. Welcome to the infinite horizons of shopping shelves. It’s not the products that are important, it’s your decisions that matter. Overwhelming amounts of ideas may be draining, but what if decision making could be fun? The authors request that a part of this process be moved to the Arsenale, emphasising that La Biennale itself is the Laboratory of the Future.”
The exhibition is titled T/C LATVIJA (TCL). Curators: Ernests Cerbulis, Uldis Jaunzems-Pētersons; Exhibitors: Ints Meņģelis, Toms Kampars.
