Dr Hlawacz in Venice
Nine Dragon Heads is an interdisciplinary platform started in 1995 in South Korea as a reaction to the destruction of a very important historical site – Nine Dragon Heads. Artists from all over the world work together or individually in places which are important culturally and historically but are endangered due to economic, political or environmental reasons. So far similar projects have taken place in the Korean Demilitarised Zone, Georgia, Turkey, Mongolia, Tibet and many others.
Jump into the Unknown, typically for Nine Dragon Heads, combines performance, installation, and site-specific work inspired this time by Venice and three islands in the Venetian Lagoon: Murano, Lido and Pellestrina.
The exhibition is open from 9 May to 18 June, 2015.
