BornHouse Exhibition at the 11th International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia
Interros Publishing Program in cooperation with The Schusev State Museum of Architecture presents BornHouse, an exhibition in which twenty-six Russian and international architects consider the theme of birth both of architectural forms and human beings.
First shown at the 2nd Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art in the former gallery of the legendary VKHUTEMAS, the exhibition will be displayed in the Church of San Stae as part of the collateral program of the 11thInternational Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. BornHouse interprets theme of Biennale, Out There: Architecture Beyong Building, as an exploration of the practicing architect`s work with metaphor. A glowing crche has been built for the Baroque environment of San Stae, and its perforated walls hold twenty-six conceptual objects of clay, wax, papier-mache, wood, glass and metal.
BornHouse and the accompanying catalogue are presented at the Architecture Biennale by the Interros Publishing Program. Like the Publishing Program`s many other projects related to the development of Russia’s culture and education, the involvement of the Interros in the 11thInternational Architecture Exhibition in Venice demonstrates how radically its investments in noncommercial humanitarian projects differ from widespread practices of sponsorship as the company pursues a fundamental goal: to participate in contemporary cultural processes through publishing, educational and exhibition activities.
