This year, the spanish pavilion becomes an interactive machine, an uncertain platform in a continuous process – a venue for reflection where, instead of preserving obsolete certainties, the visitor is invited to participate in the collective formulation of questions that arise from the theme of this edition of La Biennale: “How will we live together?”.
The experience of Uncertainty begins with the immersion in a heterogeneous Cloud of portfolios, generated out of thousands of sheets of paper, a collection of projects and actions that build up a repository of strategies for our living together – an inexhaustible source of Uncertainties that works as a database for the rest of the pavilion.
The exhibition ring around the Cloud features the Draw, an open process that reflects the continuous transformation of our reality, turning each pavilion visit into a unique and indeterminate experience. The visitors will explore the Draw in the four lateral rooms that, much like Cabinets of Wonder, will invite them to stroll around a non-hierarchical landscape of abstract, decontextualized pieces representing the selected projects. In the middle of their tour, the visitors will cross the Together Hall, where, through an audiovisual projection mapping, they will discover the sequence of interpretive operations used to select projects out of the Cloud.
In these spaces, the Draw brings together diverse projects based on the different disciplinary boundaries explored by each one of them, reflecting their interconnections through a play of lights, screens and respective objects. The temporal interferences created in this process allow each project to step outside the limits of its initial context and open up to new cross-readings, emphasizing the role of Uncertainty as a generator of new opportunities.
