Canadian Artists in Venice
There are a number of Canadians participating in the Venice Biennale this year.
Some, such as Shary Boyle, occupied the Canadian Pavilion, while others, such as Corin Sworn, shared the Scottish Pavilion with Scots. Another Canadian is Raphäelle de Groot (pictured above), who hails from Quebec, and who, through the will of curator and Sobey Award jury mainstay Louise Déry, became an "unofficial" entrant.
In a series of posts on Canadians at the Biennale, Canadian Art's Leah Sandals has this to say of de Groot's performance.
