Venice 2013: Jesper Just & Tony Podesta



In a 2-part conversation with Julia Draganovic of LaRete Art Projects, American lobbyist and art collector Tony Podesta shares his insights on the discoveries and observations regarding the 2013 Venice Biennale.

One artist Podesta mentions specifically is Danish artist Jesper Just and his video instillation at the Danish Pavilion in the Giardini of the 2013 Biennale. Jesper Just catches up with Julia Draganovic to discuss his work Intercourses, an installation of five films of structures that Just calls "ruins in progress" set in the Danish Pavilion. In this immersive piece with its implicit eroticism and sensuality, Just deals with national identity, inclusion and exclusion, and the idea of connection.

The Clocktower Gallery partnered with LaRete Art Projects to deliver roving reports from the 55th Venice Biennale. LaRete Art Projects is dedicated to research and support of new artistic strategies.

RADIO SERIES

A series of talk and musical programs assembled from our various trips to Venice for the Biennale dating back to 2005. The programs range from round table discussions to interviews to DJ sets to virtual pavilions rendered in music and sound. On two occasions (2005 and 2007) we broadcast live on Italian FM radio from a boat moored near the Giardini. In 2011 our roving reporters covered the scene while the interview booth was headquartered near Piazzo San Marco. We also partnered with artist Federico Diaz and his sculpture-building robots at the Arsenale to design a special series called Robot Radio. 2013 brought us together with LaRete Art Projects and the Venice Agendas series produced by workinprogress for interviews and discussions.
