Carole Feuerman 2015 Venice Biennale at Palazzo Mora

The Venice Biennale is the bi-yearly, worldly happening that absolutely everyone wants to be seen at, that every artist wants to be shown at, and that everybody wants to be able to say, “I was there!”  

 

The first wave of artists, critics, collectors, photographers, has-beens, wannabes, and creators in their prime, all made the excursion through the gargantuan labyrinth that is the 2015 Venice Biennale.

Carole was once again selected to participate in a group show, Personal Structures, sponsored by the European Cultural Centre at Palazzo Mora.

 

 

Everyone’s phones were out at the VIP opening night parties because Carole’s sculptures Leda and the Swan and DurgaMa were on display.

Leda greeted guests just inside the gates, while DurgaMa sat boldly in front of the doors. The crowds adored Leda and thankfully she’s not camera shy!

Leda and the Swan, 2014. Oil on Resin with 24K Gold Leaf and Swarovski Crystal. 42 x 80 x 90 inches.

Attendees are all looking to be in the right place at the right time. To put it mildly, things get a bit wild. People dance delirious from one Gala Party to the next, but hailing a water taxi or a vaporetto is even more impossible than grabbing a cab in NYC!

DurgaMa, 2014. Painted Bronze. 101 x 90 x 91 inches.

Carole’s showing of Leda and the Swan was indeed the right place at the right time as reflected by the endless sea of people making their way to view her latest sculpture.

 

JEIO Prosecco wines were provided by the generous benefactor Gianluca Bisol. The combination of Prosecco wines and live music enhanced the evening; creating a truly memorable event.
