National Pavilion of Mozambique at the 58th International Art Exhibition – Biennale Arte 2019, Venezia.
We are honoured to be the producers of the National Pavilion of Mozambique at the 58th International Art Exhibition – Biennale Arte 2019, Venezia.
The National Pavilion of Mozambique aims to show, through a contemporary perspective, the troubled past of the nation and its influences in today’s society. Working with different mediums, Gonçalo Mabunda, Mauro Pinto and Filipe Branquinho, bring to this exhibition a dialogical conversation on violence, corruption and social injustice.
Grew up in a post-colonial period during which the country was engulfed in a long civil war, the artists investigate contemporary politics and popular culture, underpinned by a poetic and sometimes humorous accent. Attentive to what happens around them, particularly to the deeper dimensions of the human experience, their work speaks to our most empathic feelings.
Beyond the Pavilion of Mozambique
To strengthen the presence of Mozambican art in Venice during Biennale Arte 2019, AKKA Project will host a series of exhibitions dedicated to Mozambican artists in its Venetian venue at San Marco 3659/A – Venezia.
