2024 Collateral Event Catalogue available online

6 May 2024

The catalogue for Collateral Event of the 59th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia Per non perdere il filo. Karine N’guyen Van Tham – Parul Thacker is available online and at the Palazzo Vendramin Grimani ticket office.

"So as not to lose the thread is the title of the exhibition that the Fondazione dell’Albero d’Oro is presenting as part of the Collateral Events of the 60th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia.
The main theme, but not the only one, is that of the thread: a source of inspiration, a medium, a metaphor that alludes to the trace, the ordering principle, writing, and which appears in weaving, in braiding, in the art of embroidery. By widening our gaze from the detail to the general, we become aware of how fabric accompanies the existence of the individual person, from swaddling cloths to shrouds, and is able to influence the basic mechanisms of civil coexistence.
Karine N’guyen Van Tham and Parul Thacker, unknown to each other, are artists who differ in origin, training, sensitivity and expressive methods. They have been chosen to give substance to the project and interpret the spaces charged with history of a Venetian palazzo: Palazzo Vendramin Grimani in the San Polo sestiere."
