Ragnar Kjartansson

S.S. Hangover

1 January 2013 – 31 December 2013

Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo supports the participation of Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson in the 55th Venice Biennale. For the exhibition Il Palazzo Enciclopedico, curated by Massimiliano Gioni, Kjartansson presents his performance work S.S. Hangover, designed for the navigation space in the former shipyards, the Gaggiandre, at the Arsenal. A sail boat shuttles back-and-forth between two docks of the Arsenal, transporting a brass sextet which performs nonstop a composition by Kjartan Sveinsson.
