Hannah Rose Stewart explores horror & architecture in ‘The Diadal’ for non-playable character by The Fairest

27 April 2022

The Fairest and Curatorial Studies Venice are presenting non-playable character at the Pier Fortunato State Secondary school in Venice, Italy from April 19 to 30, with a video entitled ‘The Diadal’ from one of the exhibition’s artists, Hannah Rose Stewart, premiering today via AQNB. Taking place at the 2022 edition of the Venice Biennale, the show features over 30 artists, including Nik Kosmas and Mary-Audrey Ramirez.

In ‘The Diadal’, Stewart questions the effect of institutional architecture on experience and memory, employing video game horror to expose uncanny hierarchies within traditional school interiors. However, walls are mostly absent throughout the animation, replaced either by gloomy stock images or shadows that stretch beyond the building’s perceivable foundation. A teacher’s groaning commands elevate this inescapable quality of the school’s confines, briefly stammering on a lesson about another chamber before the scene transitions. Eventually, the film closes without resolve, upheaving fear in futile infrastructure inevitably due to failure.**
