The Swiss Pavilion at the Biennale Arte 2022

For the Biennale Arte 2022, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia appointed artist Latifa Echakhch to represent Switzerland. In collaboration with percussionist and composer Alexandre Babel and curator Francesco Stocchi, artist Latifa Echakhch conceived and realized the exhibition titled The Concert​.

The exhibition plays with harmonies and dissonances, with the mixed feelings of expectation, fulfilment and disappearance. The sculptures are part of an orchestrated and enveloping experience, a rhythmic and spatial proposal that allows viewers to experience a fuller perception of time and of their own body.

Find out more about the project in the press release.

In the beginning was the end: Latifa Echakhch’s cycle of life 
 
The Swiss Pavilion exhibition at the Biennale Arte 2022 is titled The Concert and conceived by Latifa Echakhch, in collaboration with percussionist and composer Alexandre Babel and curator Francesco Stocchi
 
The exhibition plays with harmonies and dissonances, with the mixed feelings of expectation, fulfilment and disappearance. The sculptures are part of an orchestrated and enveloping experience, a rhythmic and spatial proposal that allows viewers to experience a fuller perception of time and of their own body.  
 
Through The Concert, Latifa Echakhch raises the question whether art, similar to music, only begins to exist once silence and emptiness take over.
 
“We want visitors to leave the exhibition with the same feeling they have when they come out of a concert. That this rhythm, those fragments of memory, still echo,” says Latifa Echakhch. “The Biennale is an eruption of artistic greatness every time. A wave that culminates in a cathartic grandeur only to then recede, leaving a deserted landscape of abandoned buildings.”
