Venice Biennale des Arts opens as Seychelles artists make their appearance for the first time

Venice Biennale des Arts opens as Seychelles artists make their appearance for the first time ( For the first time, Seychelles participated in the Venice Biennale des Arts with two very talented and well-known Seychellois artists - George Camille and Leon Redegonde.

Camille's work at the Biennale is based on the fragile relationship between the economic development and environmental policies of our small island state. Lalyann Anvisan (creepers) is one of the work that he is exhibiting in Venice, while Radegonde is presenting a series of artworks based on childhood memories, compromised with multi-dimensional facets of old tarnished clothes, exposing an element of forgotten times.

Sarah J. MaDonald, a well-known curator who curated “La Salle d'Attente" in 2013 and Victor Schaub Wong, a creative director, are the two curators of the Seychelles Pavilion at this 2015 Biennale des Art in Venice.

It was Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, who had the honor of doing the official launching of the Seychelles Pavilion on May 7 in Venice, Italy. The Minister says that this event is a milestone in the development of arts in Seychelles. “Such an important opportunity provides concrete evidence that Seychellois artists have the ability to compete alongside the best in the world. We should be proud as a nation to produce such talents. This event is also an anchor that the young emerging artists can use to inspire them to one day be a participant in a Biennale des Arts," said Minister St.Ange.

The Biennale de Venice is described as the Olympics of the arts, where the world's most prestigious and renowned artists converge to expose their incredible pieces of arts ranging from abstract and surrealist, to sculptures and installation arts. Over seventy countries have dedicated pavilions in this year’s Biennale.
