Anozero’17 biennale consists in a sole exhibition split between several spaces in the city, using some of its patrimonial highlights — from the 700 years old University, to abandoned convents and all the area that is now UNESCO’s World Heritage.
The exhibition works about several meanings of the idea of reparation and healing — whether in individual and subjective terms, or in collective terms —, about the city and its wounds. In this sense, some artists were invited to make specific works for the biennale, with important approaches on the city’s own history and its idiosyncrasies. In other cases, we asked for works belonging to institutions and private collectors for their relevance in the scope of this theme.
