Venn Diagrams (Under The Spotlight) 2011
“for her installation in the main exhibition at the 54th venice biennale, pica will construct a large venn diagram projected by coloured theatre lamps, accompanied by a caption that outlines the logical relations of inclusion and exclusion; in the 1970s in argentina, venn diagrams were banned from primary school curricula as they were considered to encourage subversive thought. it’s an incredible moment in history, when simplified graphic representation was neurotically re-imagined as a chaotic reality – a reversal of the logical positivism usually performed by the state that evokes the general through the specific, and attempts to construct the ideal through the actual.”
