Back to the Biennale (yes, again...)

Chris being the artist that he is, we, of course, headed back to the Giardini first thing this a.m. - and we JUST got home - is seven hours of art too much for anyone? Probably. The more familiar you become with something the more get from it or at least the you SHOULD, right? I found myself still favoring the same pieces/artists/installations, only more so. To the left is a photo of American artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres' spectacular marble circles at the entrance to the U.S. Pavilion. They are concave so rain water has pooled in them - by design. They are the largest sculptures made from single pieces of Carrera marble in many centuries. Stunning. Time for a glass of vino. Ciao.
