Description

Cathy Wilkes. Cathy Wilkes’ exhibition for the Biennale Arte 2019 is bathed in natural Venetian daylight. The unadorned architecture of the British Pavilion provides the setting for an interconnected series of floor-bound sculptural installations, paintings and prints. In the first room, the artist has created a complex group of figures and objects surrounding a sepulchral form. Wilkes’ paintings evoke a snow-covered elsewhere, full of sadness, both dormant and obscure. Profoundly moving and solemnly engaging, Wilkes appeals for our courage to reject the notion that knowledge is always something we can possess.
