Look, the Venice Biennale.

We also stopped in Venice to meet up with my mum and visit the Biennale. Here are a few of my personal faves:

El Anatsui beautiful woven bottle tops draped over the Palazzo Fortuny. Inside the palazzo was an amazing curio cabinet with elephants' ears, stone age sculptures and taxidermy freaks mixed with the odd Picasso. I couldn't take pictures of that but it was definitely the highlight of our stay in Venice.

This is the Jan Fabre show in a beautiful palace by the Canal. The view was dreamy.

These were hilarious, they're the skeletons of Tom and Jerry and Bugs Bunny made by a Korean Artist called Lee Hyungkoo.

This was put together by a group of Brazilian children called the Morrinho Project. It was great because it was right by the café and it had children playing in it and birds living in it.

This is a wall covered in dart boards in the Nordic Pavillion. Fun!

And of course Nikos Alexiou (see previous post)

And this is where we stayed.

Quite nice.
