A pavilion Vatican at next Venice Biennale
Artists like Anish Kapoor and Yannig Guillevic seem to be on the Vatican's list for the next Venice Biennale...
Possible names include Anish Kapoor, Jannis Kounellis, Bill Viola, Mark Wallinger… The most amazing is a French artist, Yannig Guillevic, who will present a new project entitled « Jesus washing feet » consisting of a monumental painting and a holographic projection of Pope Benedict XVI.
It remains to be seen if the propositions of other contemporary artists like Damien Hirst or Sam Taylor-Wood will be not too provocative for the Holy See, even if their works obviously show some relations with religious iconography.
