Mabel Palacín: 180º
The Catalonia and Balearic Islands project for the 54th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia presents a solo project by the artist Mabel Palacín that has been specifically conceived for the occasion in the city of Venice.
The 180º project alludes to the so-called 180º rule in film that establishes the relationship between the position of the camera and that of the viewer. Mabel Palacín refers to this principle to show that the relationship between the viewer and the image has been altered in the contemporary world by its multiplication and democratic use.
