What’s exciting about this year Venice Biennale is the history created by our very own Endless the Artist, whilst being a minority within the event (only ten percent of the artists being male) Endless becomes the first Street artist to ever be asked to be a part of the Venice Biennale and he has really set the bar high with his exceptional works.
The Pavilion of the Republic of San Marino hosts from 23 April to 27 November the new installation by the English street artist Endless. Entitled “The Endless Transfiguration”, the installation explores the complex adaptive relationship between man and nature and focuses on the dynamics through which man constantly develops new technologies to modify the environment and how nature reacts to them.
The work is an impressive installation, consisting of a collage of largely recycled materials, such as wooden panels and doors, metal panels and silver plates, on which the artist has inserted digital graphics, digitally manipulated photographs and layering in paint. 14 meters long, it has at its centre a human torso with outstretched arms and open hands to symbolize the contrasting relationship between human progress and Mother Nature.
Much of Endless’ work focuses on representing key elements of today’s society, covering aspects such as “brand cult,” advertising, consumerism and celebrity culture. Among the inspirational motifs of the artist, the creativity and visionary nature of Karl Lagerfeld can also be found within Endless’ work. In addition to the streets of London, endless’s works can be viewed in the London gallery with us at Me Art.
Endless’ work is part of the theme that the Pavilion of the Republic of San Marino has chosen to explore for the Biennale Arte 2022, the Posthuman Metamorphic and the complex relationship between body and metamorphosis, fuelled by the constant tension of man in the future.
