BACK TO THE RIENNALE
The 45th Venice Biennale opened on 9 June with the most ambitious programme to date. Fifty-three countries are showing 80 artists in the national pavilions of the Ciardini di Castello, and an international jury has selected 116 artists under 40 for the Aperto. There must be 30 more fringe exhibitions, making up the most influential contemporary art event in the world.
Conservatism is the hallmark of the Biennale, but this year’s new Director, Achille Bonito Cliva, required artists and commissioners to address current political crises, so evident in Venice, situated between a fragmented Italy, a changing Eastern Europe and a Balkans bent on self-destruction.
Most touching in their response are llans llaacke, who has installed in the Cennan pavilion a field of broken tiles cracking and ringing underfoot; Christian Philipp Muller in the Austrian, with images of eight border areas, instructions on how to cross them and trees for cover; and Mario Ceroli, showing a cluster of white flags girdled by Julian Opie’s towers and battlements in Equipment for Peace, in the ext-Yugoslavian pavilion.
Scotland is represented this time in the Aperto, where Christine Borland and Julie Roberts participate in a themed exhibition, Reality Used to Be a Friend of Mine, curated by Matthew Slotover.
The Aperto building, a Renaissance ropeworks 1070 metres long with

harsh overhead lighting, is a
notoriously difficult space, and Christine Borland is not well served. In a still, white room the resonances of A Lifetime of Love - snuggling under the covers, tucking up children - might have been heard. Wedged in between Damian llirst’s bisected cow and calf, and an intriguing installation of two saucepans heating water in a stainless steel canoe, it looks just like a neat pile of blankets.
Julie Roberts commands more attention by sheer size and subject- matter. Crisply painted, meticulously detailed, her gynaecological couch seems to float disturbingly in space.
In retrospect, the work that gave me most pure pleasure was a scintillating constellation of steel umbrellas, pipes and falling water outside the Creek pavilion, by George longolopoulos, who is ninety. It is not easy to see who his successors will be among the the younger artists showing at this Biennale in terms of the art, craft and optimism he displays.
