|Un sottomarino verrà a salvarci tutti|
it fluffs itself up,
it pins back its ears,
it talks to you,
it‘ll dive back down…
A FUTURAMA LAB Project
Initiated by Rainer Prohaska
Happening during the opening of the 59th Biennale Arte
19. – 26. April 2022 • Venice • Italy
During the opening of the 59th Biennale Arte the FUTURAMA LAB will construct and operate a hydrodynamic object on the initiative of the Austrian artist Rainer Prohaska.
The resulting SOTTOMARINO FEDERICA FELLINI will function as a conventional vessel, as a platform for the works by featured artists and as an impulse for communication with passers-by.
SOTTOMARINO FEDERICA FELLINI is a commentary on the boring gondolas and boats of the lagoon that drift silently, colourlessly and depressively through the canals. The initi- ative and the clumsy actions in the canals of the Venetian lagoon are supported by the Gibberish Dialogues 2022 to evoke a metaphorical strategy to save humanity. SOTTOMARINO FEDERICA FELLINI is a watercraft penned by Rainer Prohaska, an object-sample produced by means of ENDLESS TOYKIT COLLECTION – Vienna.
