Ecco giungere anche il nominativo per il Padiglione Svizzero, che è Pamela Rosenkranz.
Pamela Rosenkranz (b.1979) will be responsible for the exhibition at the Swiss Pavilion during next year’s Venice Art Biennale. The Biennale, a globally leading platform for contemporary art, will take place from 9 May to 22 November 2015.
Pamela Rosenkranz, born in the Canton of Uri, Switzerland, has been selected to create the exhibition at the Swiss Pavilion for the next Art Biennale in Venice. The choice was made by the biennials jury of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia. The International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia is considered one of the most important worldwide platforms for contemporary art, with last year’s edition attracting around 400,000 visitors. The forthcoming 56th edition is due to open in May 2015.
Rosenkranz’ work employs the internet-driven thinking of her generation. With a wide scope of references, ranging from politics, history, philosophy and technology to pop-culture, she translates complex issues into accessible sets of symbols, using a variety of shiny surfaces. Amongst other elements Rosenkranz uses skin-coloured finger painting on high-tech materials, colour schemes of global corporations, soft drinks and water bottles in her work. She confronts these products with their material reality and their synthetic appearance. With unexpected references to topics we encounter in the generated images and overabundant information of everyday life, Pamela Rosenkranz creates links that enable us to see things in an unexpectedly connected way while haunting and alienating us at the same time.
«Salon Suisse» at Palazzo Trevisan for the fourth time
Complementing the exhibition at the national pavilion in the Giardini of Venice, the Swiss Arts Council is once again organising the «Salon Suisse» at the Palazzo Trevisan in the heart of Venice’s old town. Initiated by Pro Helvetia in 2012, the «Salon» makes use of the Art Biennale environment to enhance the Swiss art scene’s international network. With a series of challenging events, it brings together artists, specialists, students and other interested visitors from all over the world.

IC -98 è il nome del duo artistico che rappresenterà la Finlandia alla prossima Biennale di Venezia nel 2015.
La sigla rappresentativa degli artisti Visa Suonpää e Patrik Söderlund che inizialmente, quando si fondarono nel 1998, si chiamavano "Iconoclast", trasformato poi nella sigla IC-98.
Attualmente sono in mostra presso la galleria Beaconsfield di Londra (da cui la foto)
From web site http://www.socialtoolbox.com/
Based in Turku, Finland, IC-98 is Visa Suonpää (b. 1968) and Patrik Söderlund (b. 1974). In 2015, IC-98 will represent Finland in the Venice Biennale.
IC-98 (originally 'Iconoclast', founded in 1998) aims to realize its objectives typically in collaborations, drawings, animations and books. The objectives are not programmatic, nor are the messages unequivocal – on the contrary, they are in constant movement towards the intersections of individual intuition and mutual agreements – the ideal is a free space of thought. IC-98 is interested in events, which did not take place, fantastic connections between things, heresies and pure systems of thought, the presence of history in everyday life, the body politic, social formations and architectural constructions, control mechanism and techniques of escaping them.
The medium of choice always follows strategically the context, its history and present situation, and the objectives in question. In practice, traditional research is combined with intuitive, subjective and personal considerations. The drawings, animations and books (the typical but not only mediums of choice) are ambiguous mashups constructed from diverse sources of information. They are stages or stagings, tableaux vivants, a theatre where the world according to IC-98 is played out. All IC-98 projects can be characterized as narrative constructs, blueprints of the possible or scripts for action. They try not to close on themselves but to act as condensations of diverse fluxes, both linguistic and affective – they open up to point something out or to bring something together, like expanded collages. IC-98 strives for an expressive quality, which retains traces of incompleteness, a process or becoming – it is a language but a language which stutters, which has obscurities and strange gaps, a cartography that escapes pure reason. In general, what IC-98 is after is the virtual.
