An (XR) exhibition of new paintings by Flora Yukhnovich created during a residency with Victoria Miro in Venice during the autumn of 2019 and completed in her London studio earlier this month. The exhibition is available exclusively online in Victoria Miro’s virtual gallery on Vortic.
In 2019, Victoria Miro established a studio space in Venice for invited artists to spend extended time in the historic city and make new bodies of work. During a two-month residency, Flora Yukhnovich used the opportunity to engage more fully with Venetian culture. Her sources include the music of Vivaldi and the memoirs of Casanova, in addition to one of her key influences, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, whose works including ceiling frescoes in the Ca’ Rezzonico museum and the Chiesa Santa Maria della Visitazione she was able to study first hand. This exhibition is presented in association with Parafin.
