The non-for-profit art foundation Global Art Affairs invited us to present our work in the exhibition Personal Structures / Time-Space-Existence that will take place at the Palazzo Bembo in Venice from May 9th to November 22nd, 2015. We will be showing our work beside that of some of the most acclaimed artists of our era, including Marina Abramovic, Richard Long, Anish Kapoor and Tatsuo Miyajima.This exhibition will be part of the official program from the 56th Venice Biennale. It is a colossal project and surely the most important one in the collateral program of the Biennale. In the last years, Global Art Affairs have attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors to their exhibitions and their events have been attended by some of the world’s most important art professionals.

The Venice Biennale is the most respected international art event. It is visited by art professionals and art lovers from everywhere in the world. For emerging artists such as us, the opportunity to show in this context is unequaled. We feel very fortunate for having been offered such an opportunity and we are asking for your support to make this project possible. By making a donation, you are contributing to bringing our work from Montreal, Canada to Venice, Italy. Each dollar takes us closer to our destination!  

Thank you very much, 

 Guillaume and Simon

Risks and challenges

The greatest challenge we face is to make the most of this project. We want to avoid going unnoticed in the brouhaha of the Biennale. For this reason, we will try to get as much media coverage we can in Quebec, in Canada and internationally. This is the opportunity for us to break on the international scene and we want to put all the chances on our side. This is also the reason why we will go to Venice for the opening. We want to meet with the organizers and their VIP guests.
