Venice Biennale
May 2015

The Memory in Venice partly runs with the writings and life of the poet Joseph Brodsky, adding layers about the Sea, about relations and about time and nature.  Besides playing at Biennale locations we planted flower seeds in the Isola di San Michele cemetery where Brodsky has his grave. The memory game continued on the island and the curious can find traces.
