Serbian Pavillion at 2024 Venice Biennale to open tomorrow

The 60th Venice Biennale, set to run from 20 April–24 November 2024, will be curated by Adriano Pedrosa. The Biennale, featuring work by more than 330 participating artists from some 90 countries scattered throughout the city, opens to the public on Saturday. 

Visual artist and set designer Aleksandar Denić will represent the Serbian Pavillion which will be officially open on Friday, 19th April, at noon.

Titled Exposition Coloniale, the exhibition deals with ideas of residence versus being in transit, housed in the pavilion that has itself been passed down the hands of several nations – initially intended for Sweden and Greece and then acquired by Romania and former Yugoslavia.

Being permanently displaced in Germany and other German-speaking regions, Denić will immerse the space with a ‘reflective discomfort’ that provokes visitors to question their sense of belonging and ‘feel like a foreigner in [their] own country’. The exhibition will include music and sounds, lights, heating systems and other sensory elements which will ‘further blur and disturb the boundaries between the physical and emotional realms’. 

Ksenija Samardžija is the curator and Jelena Medaković is the commissioner.
