Artist collective ÅYR is co-representing Britain in the 15th Venice Architecture Biennial, running May 26 to November 27.
The London-based group founded and run by Fabrizio Ballabio, Alessandro Bava, Luis Ortega Govela, and Octave Perrault in 2014 focuses on contemporary forms of domesticity and often sets up installations in art fairs and biennials, such as London’s Frieze, where the the booth was turned into a room and all inside was constructed to be a ‘Smart Home’.
For the opening weekend of the Venice Architecture Biennial, ÅYR are hosting a party at Bauer Hotel called ‘Safe Space’, where there are “no lists”, “no stress” and where you can find “biennale realness”.
DJing will be New York-based poet Harry Burke, Signorina Van Der Rohe and Martti Kalliala.
See both the FB eventpage and the Venice Architecture Biennial website for further info.**
