The Naked Room gallery to represent Ukraine at Venice Biennale.

The Naked Room gallery will represent Ukraine at the 59th Venice Biennale international contemporary art exhibition.

"The Naked Room gallery will represent Ukraine at the 59th Venice Biennale with the art project Fountain of Exhaustion. High Water which was selected by ranked-choice voting," the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine posted on Facebook.

According to birdinflight.com, the artist of the project is Pavlo Makov. The curatorial group includes Lizaveta Herman, Maria Lanko, and Borys Filonenko. The project fulfilled Makov's idea, which appeared back in 1995: a series of wall-mounted copper funnels to function as a fountain.

In the 1990s, almost all the fountains in Kharkiv city, where Makov lives and works, did not function and turned into paradoxical city objects. The artist's project has not been implemented in full, with streams of water. Today, the Makov Fountain is becoming a form of depletion on the cultural, economic, and political levels. The work will take on a new meaning in Venice, which is slowly going underwater. The exposition will be accompanied by archival materials telling about the history of the installation.

La Biennale di Venezia is one of the leading exhibitions of contemporary art, held biennially (in odd-numbered years) in Venice. Ukraine has been participating in the Venice Biennale since 2001.
