The State Russian Museum, the Municipality Of Venice are pleased to present In Dante Veritas, a massive multimedia exhibition by Russian artist Vasily Klyukin at Arsenale Nord (30100 Venice) from May 8th to November 24th, 2019. In Dante Veritas is scheduled to exhibit during The 2019 Venice Biennale, a major cultural worldwide event. A reverberation of Dante Alighieri's 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy, Klyukin explores themes of human vice and sin, Good and Evil, and reimagines Dante’s Inferno as an environmental collapse - the final consequence for our sin and non-action.
The collection, which tells a narrative that re-engineers the nine circles of hell, is comprised of over 100 multimedia elements including sculpture, installation, digital art, audio and light boxes. A significant part of the exhibition are 32 sculptural works, 22 of which represent human vices, like Anger, Lust, Gluttony, and Hypocrite. Working in a larger scale, Klyukin gives new names to the The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse: Overpopulation, Misinformation, Extermitation and Pollution, At 3.5 meters high, these were the most physically demanding works for the artist to create, but they raise important issues and are reflective of today’s global issues, ushering classical tropes into the modern era.

Grandiose Austellung ! Trotz schwerem Thema entspannend, weil perfekt aufgearbeitet mit Audioguide in deutscher Sprache! Mille Grazie !!! So sollte die gesamte Biennale aufbereitet sein.... in Zeiten der Globalisierung müsste doch auch so etwas möglich sein !
