venice_biennale_des_artsFor the the first time Seychelles was participating in the Venice Biennale des Arts  with two very talented and well known Seychellois artists. They are George Camille and Leon Redegonde.



Camille’s work at the Biennale is based on the fragile relationship between the economical development and environmental policies of our small island state.  Lalyann Anvisan (creepers) is one of the work that he is exhibiting in Venice,  while Radegonde is presenting a series of artworks based on childhood memories , compromised with multi-dimensional facets of old tarnished clothes , exposing an element of forgotten times.



Sarah J.MaDonald , a well known curator who curated  “La Salle d’Attente” in 2013 and Victor Schaub Wong , a creative director are the two curators of the Seychelles Pavilion at this 2015 Biennale des Art in Venice.



It was Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture who had the honour to do the official launching of the Seychelles Pavilion on the 7th May in Venice, Italy.  The Minister says that this event is a milestone in the development of arts in Seychelles.   “Such an important opportunity provides concrete evidence that Seychellois artists have the ability to compete alongside the best in the world.  We should be proud as a nation to produce such talents. This event is also an anchor that the young emerging artists can use to inspire them to be one day be a participant in a Biennale des Arts” said Minister St.Ange.



The Biennale de Venice  is described as the Olympic of the arts where the world’s most prestigious and renowned artists converge to expose their incredible pieces of arts ranging from abstract,  surrealist, to sculptures abd installation arts. Over seventy countries have dedicated pavilions in this years Biennale.
