On our second day, Giudecca opened its doors to us. Starting with ‘My love story with Venice’ by Paul B. Preciado, the tour brought us through the pulsing energy of the fascinating island. Facing Zattere where V-A-C is located, Giudecca houses artists studios, galleries and production spaces.
We had the opportunity to visit Spazio Punch and the installation set there of plant species currently considered illegal in the European Union. Located in the renovated Dreher’s brewery, Spazio Punch sits alongside other artists studios and small galleries.
After a brief visit to the artists atelier, we went to Spazio Cosmo, a production space located in a deconsecrated church. There, soprano singer Claron McFadden and composer Emanuele Wiltsch Barberio rehearsed for us pieces of their upcoming show.
