9-11 May 2019: Venice, Italy
The patterns of informal power acquired a non-textual mode in Alena's art displayed at the Palace of Ritual exhibition on the fringes of the 58th Venice Biennale. Three art pieces – Inner Circle, Scapegoat and Suspended Punishment – supported the dissemination of the Encyclopaedia. The exhibition was organised by Arts Territory, together with Avenir Institute, co-funded by the FRINGE Centre and co-curated by FRINGEr Michał Murawski.
