Exhibition: May 1st – May 29th, 2022

Venue: Hotel Ca’ di Dio, Riva Ca’ di Dio 2183, 30122 Venice, Italy
Hotel Ca’ Di Dio and Visual Atelier 8 are pleased to present Dr Gindi’s ‘The Fateful Choice’ to celebrate the Biennale 2022. Dr Gindi is one of Switzerland’s foremost contemporary sculptors and known for her bronze sculptures that often entail an element of surprise. ‘The Fateful Choice’ is a life-size sculpture depicting a solitary female character holding a knife behind her back, exchanging our imagination between pique and poetry.
The exhibition is held at the courtyard of the Hotel Ca’ di Dio, the new luxury hotel in the sestiere Castello along Riva degli Schiavoni, bears the signature of Patricia Urquiola, who was in charge of interior design and was the art director. Cà di Dio is the third hotel in the VRetreats collection, after Rome and Taormina: historic houses, having an international flair and deluxe hospitality where the connection with the territory appears in each detail. Each space displays careful research into materials, characterized by fabrics, glass, stone and marble, all worked respecting the traditions of local craftsmanship. This narrative of a “Venetian house” continues through its offering of exquisite hospitality, two rooftop loggias from where one may gaze out over the whole of Venice; and the three gardens created in the courtyards are peaceful oases in which to find oneself and connect to the external environment.
The event is co-hosted by Visual Atelier 8, the art magazine committed to empower artists in the global public interest. Researched articles on the most original and undiscovered projects from across the industries are accessible for intellectual and visual exploration.
Dr Gindi’s intimate and speculative works are entrancing – and vitally analogous to celebrate and accompany the Biennale’s magic journey into the world of imagination. Combining literary sculpting with seditious abstraction to expedite the meandering into the infinity of human existence, Dr Gindi draws on the often-opposing assimilations of identity by reinterpreting memories from the perspective of a sculptor who transcends the binaries of being. Various institutions of international repute have presented shows of her work.
The Vernissage in presence of the artist will be held on Sunday May 1st at 18:00. Light refreshments are served.
