Smiljan Radic and Marcela Correa from Santiago de Chile were invited to participate in the 12th Venice Architecture Biennale under the theme ‘People meet in Architecture’ curated by Kazuyo Seijima. As soon as you enter the Arsenale space you’ll spot the beautiful sculpture ‘the boy hidden in a fish’, a large stone with a space carved out for one person to fit into.
The minimal sculpture seems to refer to the grimm brothers story ‘the sea-hare’. The team aims to offer hope for a serene future after the earthquake in chile on 27 february 2010. After earthquakes, people need to rebuild a future that is protected, perfumed, and peaceful.
