Mario Basner is one of thirty artists worldwide selected this year to exhibit at the Venice Biennale in Italy.
With an unexpected depth and an extraordinary liveliness Mario's artworks create a mesmerizing dynamic between the image and audience.
The "Time Space Existence" Exhibition in Venice, Italy is hosted by European Cultural Centre & Global Art Affairs (GAA) foundation. Time, Space and Existence are the most fundamental themes of mankind. The exhibition aims to acknowledge that all human discoveries and achievements, be it in science, art or any other discipline, should lead to a greater awareness about our existence, the existence of all matter and our position within time and space. Architecture, of the past and of today, forces us to consider and reconsider.
Architectural photographers have the power to capture this Space in this Time in our Existence, they can document the status and society we live in and additionally, as for architects, they have many different points of view and approaches. The exhibition will illustrate the influence of architecture in a wider sense in our daily life, and therewith in our human existence.
It is a tremendous honor to be selected for the Venice Biennale and plans are underway to exhibit Mario's works in Italy 2019/2020.
