Description

Thirst. The graphic story present in the pavilion unfolds along a path consisting of five stages: crisis, intuition, hope, knowledge, and purification. The thirst for water thus begins with a crisis phase in which the works displayed represent the hardship and suffering of a thirsty society that is subjected to the consequences of drought or pollution. The exhibition continues with a section in which the meaning of the works alludes to the ‘intuition of water’, that is, the mental perception of redemption from the initial suffering, and the chance for salvation. The following stage involves hope that is translated into a quest: a boat in search of water. In the fourth stage the discovery of water becomes knowledge. In the last part of the exhibition the source symbolises the satisfaction that comes with being able to quench one’s thirst and thrive.
