Personal Structure – Group Show: 11.05.2019 – 24.11.2019
LOCATION: Palazzo Bembo, Riva del Carbon 4793-4785, 30124 Venice/IT
Wanda Stang’s artworks are presented in the context of the Venice Art Biennial 2019. The GAA Foundation organized the exhibition “PERSONAL STRUCTURES” hosted and supported by the European Cultural Centre located in three prestigious palazzi in the centre of Venice – Palazzo Bembo and Palazzo Mora and the Giardini Marinaressa.
The exhibition shows an extensive combination of internationally well established and emerging artists. It is an attempt to offer a cross-section of contemporary art today. The selected artists come from many different parts of the world, with backgrounds in different cultures showcasing artworks of all kind of media. They reflect with their own subjective, personal expression on the concepts of time, space and existence – be it site-specific, specially created for this exhibition, or taken from the existing collection of the artists. Some rooms in the palazzi are dedicated to the presentation of single artists, while other rooms present projects and groups of artists.
Wanda Stang’s oeuvre engages with issues of observation, distance, sharing, and the boundaries between the private and public spheres. It includes works on paper and canvas, sometimes developed into three-dimensional works, objects and sculptures, site-specific installations, performance, and handmade clothing. Visionary ideas and the essence of Romanticism have exerted a strong impression on the artist. Her imaginative world made up by the fusion of dreams with reality offers a surreal space where new perspectives of thinking and creation are stimulated.
In 2014 she graduated from the Art and Textile Design department at the Berlin Weissensee School of Art. Since then she has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Germany, Netherlands, Hungary and the USA, e.g. at the Berlinische Galerie, Berlin/DE and Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle, Berlin/DE.
