Leviathan_ Palazzina Canonica, Venice: 7 May - 24 September 2017
From 07 May to 24 September 2017

Leviathan is an artistic project looking at some of the urgent issues of our times.

In dialogue with a wide range of marine biologists, oceanographers, political scientists, neurol­ogists and trauma specialists, Leviathan explores the notions of marine welfare, migration and mental health and their possible interconnections.

Leviathan is an ambitious ten-part film cycle conceived and directed by Shezad Dawood.

The first two episodes are premiered in Venice as a site-specific collaboration between Fondazione Querini Stampalia, the Institute of Marine Sciences (CNR-ISMAR) and Fortuny.

The exhi­bition is presented, from 7 May to 24 September 2017, in the historic Palazzina Canonica, situated on the waterfront and open to the public for the first time since the 1970’s.

Alongside the films, the exhibition also contains a dynam­ic series of textiles and sculpture, collectively imagining a world where the fault lines between marine welfare, migration and mental health are not fully understood or responded to.

Leviathan is curated by Alfre­do Cramerotti.

Following the launch in Venice, the project will embark on a three-year international tour, culminating in a final presentation of all ten episodes in 2020.
