Venice Current

Island Ark

Marcos Lutyens
Solo show

Alberta Pane Gallery is pleased to present Island Ark by Marcos Lutyens, the first solo show ever held in the frame of its Venetian space. Island Ark is a project that seeks to remediate the loss of habitability due to sea level rise - happening to entire island nations across the world. Island Ark proposes elevated island structures to take the place of atolls and islands as they become partially or completely lost under the waves. The exhibition includes video, ceramic works, drawings, an audio induction, inductive portals and a maquette that could be used as a kit to help island nations decide which activities (i.e. practices of consciousness, reconnection to the senses, creative social interactions, stewardship of the environment) to include in their own platform. Visitors to the gallery are invited to imagine their own utopian 
scenarios.
