Palazzo Peckham Punts The Canals Of The 2013 Venice Biennale
Palazzo Peckham opened in Venice Sunday 26 May 2013 for the 55th Venice Biennale. The Palazzo is a live space for new ideas and co-production, cultivating exciting relationships between people. It welcomes its audience as guests and participants. A home from home for an ever-‐expanding network of creative people.
The Palazzo, a Peckham-in-Venice showcase, “both a work of art and a facility” is the brain-child of art dealer Hannah Barry (Hannah Barry Gallery). Interiors have been commissioned from international artists, Dora Budor (b.1983 Zagreb, Croatia) Rob Chavasse (b. 1984 Shoreham-‐by-‐Sea, UK) Cindie Cheung (b. 1984 Aarhus, Denmark) Joe Hamilton (b.1982 Tasmania, Australia) Katharina Stoever -‐ Peles Empire (b. 1982 Giessen, Germany) Barbara Wolff -‐ Peles Empire (b. 1980 Fagaras, Romania 1980) Amy Petra Woodward (b. 1986 London, UK) Jon Rafman (b. 1981 Montreal, Canada) produced by American Medium Samara Scott (b. 1984 London, UK) Viktor Timofeev (b.1984 Riga, Latvia) and Simon Werner (b. 1986 Basel, Switzerland).
The Palazzo will host a series of live events privately and publicly and uploaded online with: American Medium, Harry Burke, Maja Cule, Simon Denny, Natalie Dray, Cecile B Evans, Rozsa Farkas, Ed Fornieles, Jimmy Merris, MSHR, Yuri Pattison, Paul Pieroni, Tom Saunderson and Andrew Norman Wilson. Peles Empire will screen films from artists Karen Cytter, Claire Hooper, Dani Gal, Ramiken, Magali Reus, Edward Thomasson.
The website hosts specially commissioned new works, allows guests to share their own videos, images and comments, and is a live channel for material created by our in-‐house team with visitors to the Palazzo. Fully integrated with ArtStack, the website is an opportunity for guests to explore more of the artists’ work, discover their influences and continue their experience after the project’s completion.
