The 2nd edition of Continua XXL Online presents Zhanna Kadyrova and her works “Market” 2017 – 2019 and “Second Hand” 2014 – 2019. Both are projects that have spanned a number of years; in this instance, we explore them in the context of the 58th Venice Biennale “May You Live In Interesting Times”.
“Market” saw the produce of a typical street market made from stone, cement and tiles displayed in the Arsenale section of the Biennale, provoking thought around the notion of art as a tradeable commodity. “Second Hand” held in the central pavilion of the show, is a work that according to its place and circumstance changes aesthetic. Kadyrova used tiles repurposed from a Venetian hotel to make her clothes and linens, some of which, in the typical Venetian style, were hung outside.
