Entrance to Venice Biennale at Giardini ヴェネツィア・ビエンナーレの入口The Venice Biennale has two main sites: The lush and garden-like Giardini and the Arsenale, a short walk away. Other venues (mainly country pavilions) are scattered around Venice.

Venice Biennale at GiardiniThe Giardini site has country pavilions that are permanent buildings. Most of the major countries are represented by their own pavilions. This is the path to the Italian Pavilion, the largest one of all.

Japan Pavilion showing Miyako Ishiuchi 日本館は、30年ぶりに写真家が出品:石内都The last time a Japanese photographer held a solo show at the Venice Biennale's Japan Pavilion was in 1976 with Kishin Shinoyama. Almost 30 years later, we finally have a photographer as Japan's featured artist. She is Miyako Ishiuchi.

Her exhibition was titled: mother's 2000-2005--traces of the future. This is a series of photos of her deceased mother's personal effects--clothing, lipstick, kimono, etc.

A catalog of the same name was also published and sold in the pavilion. They also had sample copies of her other photo books (all in Japanese), but only the catalog was for sale.

写真家が単独で日本代表となるのは、1976年の篠山紀信以来です。今回の第51回のヴェネツィア・ビエンナーレに石内都が出品したのは、2000年に亡くなった母の遺品を撮った「Mother's」シリーズ。服、ヘアブラシ、口紅、といった品々が主の不在を静かに訴えかける。計35点。
