MIDAS PR working with leading Armenian artist Narine Arakelian
Midas PR is thrilled to be working with the world’s leading female contemporary artist, Narine Arakelian, who is returning to the 58th Venice Biennale to both headline the Armenia Pavilion and launch her striking new exhibition, The Pharos Flower at the Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, one of Venice’s most iconic landmarks.
The Pharos Flower exhibition and installation will see Narine transform the iconic 15th century spiral staircase of the Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo into a striking multi-coloured lighthouse. The Pharos Lighthouse will project colourful rays of light from the top floor of the Scala, creating a spectacular light installation that will be visible across the city’s iconic skyline. The installation aims to play on our idea of perception and time with the Lighthouse becoming a singular moment linking the past, present and future.
Narine Arakelian has also been selected to launch the official opening of the Armenian Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale. On 9th May, Narine will give a one-time-only performance of her performance work titled “Revolutionary Sensorium”, curated by Susanna Gyulamiryan. The piece is an exploration of the revolutionary events of the ‘Velvet Revolution’ that took place in Armenia in Spring 2018 uniting civilians through their slogan of ‘solidarity and love’. The performance will take place at 5pm on 9th May at the Armenian Pavilion 2019 which is situated at the Collegio Armeno Moorat.
Internationally recognised as a multi-sensual contemporary artist, at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017, Narine was invited to exhibit her large-scale installation, “L’Illusion du Marriage” inside Venice’s historic building the Scuola Grande di San Rocco home of the Tintoretto masterpieces. The piece combined installation with contemporary performances across the city, with a finale at the magnificent Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista.
