Self portrait in Venice, 2015

“Wolves Coming”, Lio Ruo Wang

One of the smallest and one the biggest countries worldwide – namely San Marino and China – decided to work together at the biennial and set up a Friendship project. The curator selected 11 artists – 5 from San Marino and 6 from China – and had their work installed in several locations in the city. One of those is Telecom Italia’s Future Centre, in the former convent of San Salvador in the centre of Venice, where you can gaze at the impressive installation by the Chinese artist Lio Ruo Wang. It shows a pack of wolves (iron sculptures) with their threatening bloody jaws spread open, running in the direction of a replica of Michelangelo’s Pietà. With this piece, the artist wants to criticise the destruction of art that goes on in several countries and also persecutions in the name of faith.
