56th Venice Biennale: Miya Ando Installation

Artist Miya Ando (featured in our last issue of 01 Magazine)  has a large installation in this year’s Venice Biennale, as part of the Frontiers Reimagined Exhibition at the Museo di Palazzo Grimani. She has created   a free-standing 84 x 84 x 84 inch sculpture, which is clad on the exterior with traditional Japanese charred wood, called Shou Sugi Ban. Inside the sculpture are floor-to-ceiling metal paintings on metal. The piece is entitled ‘Emptiness The Sky’ (Shou Sugi Ban) and will be on view through the end of the 56th Venice Biennale (November 22nd 2015). Congrats Miya!
