Here’s a list of who/what I got excited about in Venice…
Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz’s installation Moving Backwards at the Swiss Pavilion – swishy curtain reminiscent of 2012 work Shoplifters, Shopgirls by Sophie Macpherson and Clare Stephenson.
Charlotte Prodger and Laure Prouvost for Scotland and France respectively.
Also old favs Ed Atkins, Rosemarie Trockel and Christian Marclay.
And new favs Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Kahlil Joseph, Henry Taylor, Njideka Akunyili Crosby.
And Haris Epaminonda.
And the two I missed by turning the wrong way in the Arsenalle? Only Anthea Hamilton and John Akomfrah (he in the Ghana Pavilion). Arse.
