Mexican Pavillion, Arsenale: Luis Felipe Ortega and Tania Candiani’s “Possessing Nature.”
Using Venice and Mexico City as inspirations, Candiani and Ortega juxtapose the two cities, one a “city of canals,” and the other, a “city of drains.” The artwork itself is a flawed hydraulic system that reveals the natural disequilibrium that forms when political structures attempt to grow in defiance of nature, which, we learn, holds the ultimate power.

Home, chic home.
