At the Maldives Pavilion curated by the Chamber of Public Secrets, invited artists, environmental campaigners and thinkers from around the world presented a collection of thoughts on preserving and archiving the Maldivian memory, history and the visual representation of the sinking paradise.

Since its opening, this eco-pavilion has also presented over a six-month period a significant number of parallel projects to the main exhibition. The events of the Pavilion’s public program have provided not only an aesthetic experience, but they have afforded new opportunities and forums for the expansion of many of the themes which emerged conceptually and artistically in Pavilion exhibition, related to the concept of contemporary ‘environmental romanticism’.

The special presentation of ‘Portable Nation’ at the Fondazione Pescheria is curated by Camilla Boemio. With this selection of works, Boemio re-proposes elements of the Pavilion as a site-specific exhibition for the Church of the Suffragio. The contributing artists are: Ursula Biemann, Stefano Cagol, Josephine Starrs & Leon Cmielewski, and Sama Alshaibi.

Through these parallel initiatives of the Maldives Pavilion, a broader public has been given the opportunity to apply their individual knowledge and daily experiences towards a better understanding and appreciation of both broader environmental issues, but also about the processes of preservation within the very challenging and particular ecological situation of the isles of the Maldives.

The Fondazione Pescheria exhibition opened on the 11th of October to coincide with the annual Day of Contemporary Art of AMACI (Association of Italian Museums of Contemporary Art), which is organized each year throughout Italy to bring the current art of our times to an extended public. This exhibition will run until 2nd November.
