Escapade slovaque

How do you discover a culture?
Through scenography, the project aims to introduce Slovak culture to visitors of the Venice Biennale of Architecture through the creation of a cultural environment. It is a contemporary reinterpretation of tradition and life in Slovakia with the pattern as its main thread, based on experience and not on the presentation of cultural contents and clichés.
After passing through a darkened entrance, visitors enter the pavilion and can discover an interpretation of characteristic elements of Slovak culture, such as the parallel between architecture and nature or the notions of being, appearing and intimacy. Projections of red patterns cover the interior of the building, showing its omnipresence in everyday life.
