Three more weeks until the end of the 57th Venice Biennale! If you haven’t been, you better hurry or you would have to wait for a couple of years until the next Biennale. It’s the Oscars of the Arts World – one of the biggest and probably longest running international art exhibitions. This year, 120 artists were invited from all over the world and 86 countries commissioned installations to represent their nations to an audience of 500K visitors.
Developing Dreams were not directly involved in this year’s Venice Biennale, but our partner organisation 3Dify worked with artist Claudia Fontes on an amazing installation called The Horse Problem for the Argentian Pavilion.
3Dify’s challenge was to scan two people at a quality high enough for them to then be fabricated at life-size, and scan the artist’s maquette of a horse so it could be re-created as a massive 5 metre tall sculpture. 3Dify provided 3D photogrammetry scanning and collaborated with 3D modelling artist Lola Lipsum, who digitally remodelled and re-posed the scans, to realise Claudia’s incredible vision. Heralded by mainstream media as one of the ‘must sees’ and ‘most photographed’ exhibits of the 2017 Venice Biennale, ‘The Horse Problem’ is on show until November 26th 2017.
Developing Dreams has worked on a variety of arts projects in the past so if you are looking for a partner in crime to pull off your next event or installation with an arty edge, then get in touch.
