If you find yourself in Venice, the romantic city of water, this summer, don’t miss your chance to visit the 53rd International Art Exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia. This year’s art exhibition, titled Making Worlds, features works by over 90 artists from all over the world, including South Korean photographer Atta Kim.
Atta Kim: ON-AIR series features long-exposure images of places such as Times Square and the UN Headquarters. The radiant images give a feeling of a deserted ghost-town, a twilight reality in which everything fades.
The exhibition also features work from his Monologue of Ice series, where he documents slowly melting ice sculptures of recognizable figures as Mao Zedong, to show how once-mighty figures and places are gone and now exist merely as fleeting memories or pictures in history.
