Carpenters Workshop Gallery presents 'Dysfunctional' on the occasion of the Venice Art Biennale this year, showcasing an international roster of artists and designers whose work creates a dialogue with one of the city’s most historical palaces.
Set in the ‘Ca’ d’Oro’, which houses the Galleria Giorgio Franchetti, over 50 works by 25 artists and designers, including Studio Drift, Virgil Abloh, Campana Brothers, Mathieu Lehanneur and Rick Owens, will be presented alongside its permanent collection of Renaissance and Baroque pieces.
Fragile Future III (2019) by Studio Drift will form a frame of light around Andrea Mantegna's painting San Sebastian (1506), which is the heart of the museum’s collection and for which Franchetti purposely built a chapel decorated with marble. Daring to go through the door (2019) by Vincent Dubourg will interact with the patera of the permanent collection, a bas- relief created to ward off bad spirits. Working for the first time with clay, the artist randomly places paper-like layers of clay to form a door that obscures the view.
