The “ENT” project
Alessandro Zannier’s “ENT” project, one of a kind, has intercepted two Venice Biennales of Arts in a row in the last two years.
After the participation in his double role as visual artist and musician-performer to the Venice Biennale of Architecture 2021 (“Resilient Communities” Pavilion Italy) with “ENT1 – Venice/Auckland” in connection with the twin installation sent to the antipodal Auckland University (NZ), Alessandro Zannier created the second twinning, this one with the African continent, crossing Venice’s environmental data with Cameroun’s ones.
Based on his seventh concept album “Entanglement” subjects (signed under his musical alias”Ottodix”), the project aims at talking some sense on the definitive link between single local phenomena on a global scale, with a cause-and-effect on the whole system.
