Conceived as a shared production space, the Pavilion will host, throughout the duration of the Venice Biennale, a number of guest artists who will produce and perform new sound performances, thereby expanding the definition of a collective artwork. The defining link between their artistic practices is the choice of sound as their medium. The artists will never physically cross paths during their respective residencies: they will share a collection of their sounds before the opening of the Pavilion as a basis for each of their work, and leave one after their passage. Thus, at once tapping into an existing sound library and in turn forming a new one, each of them will produce a soundscape – a synthesis of their own work and the traces left by their peers.

Having their practices strongly rooted in experimentation will make the process of exchange and pollination between each other’s contributions richer and more fluid. The thirty-week duration of the Biennale will be structured around the different cycles of residence and production of each artist. The space will remain continuously accessible to the public. Sound and space are tuned: the spatial elements – floor, walls, ceilings – are turned into sound devices, progressively shaping an immersive experience. The Pavilion is at once the space where the soundscape is produced, and where it is played – the studio and the stage – in a gesture of radical transparency.
