The curator of the exhibition “Playground: Artifacts to interact” developed a brief discussion about the concept and experience that visitors will have in the Peruvian pavilion, located in the Venice Arsenal.
The project was conceived around urban problems and the appropriation of public spaces that have grown in different regions of the South American country, especially in the city of Lima, with a main element: the bars, which basically mean fear.
The proposal focused on breaking this fear, through the transformation of bars into new artifacts, which encourage interaction through play and improve the relationship between citizens, with the seesaws being emblematic elements, where two people find a balance to be able to sit down.
In this way, it is evident that, through balance and play, trust emerges, a feeling that is fundamental to generate harmony and a fluid interaction between human beings.
The ambiance of the exhibition includes dissuasive signs, as well as a main bar at the entrance that marks the beginning of the experience, complemented by visual and sound elements.
The participation of the South American country has been the responsibility of the Peruvian Cultural Board since 2016, an institution in charge of the production and organization of the pavilion, with the participation of PROMPERÚ. In addition, it has the support of the sponsors Wiese Foundation and El Comercio newspaper, and from the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru and the University of Lima.
Access to the Peruvian pavilion takes place from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. with prior reservation and purchase of tickets.
The 17th International Exhibition of Architecture of the Venice Biennial will be held until November 21st, and its central theme is “How will we live together?”
