Anyone following the Biennale? Ive found that Artsy has a great coverage which gives a good overview of the 51 countries participating

Sheila Hicks installation of bales of pigmented fibers seems like one of the greatest installations, such immensely colourfull and explosive.

Not really, there is so much to take in. That being said, the Korean Pavilion with works by Cody Choi and Lee Wan tackling identity conflicts and globalism seems interesting. Lorenzo Quionns “support” scupture also makes quite the statement, even though you could argue whether Venize is sinking due to global warming or being built on a poor foundation… perhaps a bit of both.
