On July 6th, Vanmachelen’s most awaited project yet “LABIOMISTA” opened to the public. The “new-age zoo” saw over 4,000 visitors on its first weekend. I was lucky enough to be invited for a sneak peek and a chat with Vanmachelen before its opening.
Coinciding with the 58th Venice Biennial, Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen has launched the evolving artwork Human Rights Pavilion.
Closing this weekend is FORCE OF NATURE. Featuring work by 28 contemporary artists, surveying the influence of nature and its processes on their work.
This week’s top 5 features taxidermy, animatronics, chickens, a major new gallery and emerging art.
