Chiesa di San Fantin, Venice
22 April – 30 September 2022
Curated by Michael Short this exhibition is organised in collaboration with KEWENIG, Magazzino, Mai 36 Galerie and Sprovieri.
Field dominates the vast interior of Chiesa di San Fantin, spreading out, on, and across the central area of the nave. Its expansive, varied topography grounds and holds the floorspace, reinforcing the perception of the volumes above. The sculpture is a form of low-relief, consisting of an indeterminate grid of steel platforms which evoke the passerelle used during acqua alta conditions in the city. Complete within its boundaries, a multitude of uniform LED light tubes burn steadily on these platforms, underneath the occlusion of debris that appears to have rained down from above.
