BORDERS ART FAIR 2021 | FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES Venice | July 12/13 - August 01, 2021 ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events and ACIT Venice - Italian- German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the opening of FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES, the second appointment of BORDERS - Venice International Art Fair, that will be held in Venice, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space from July 12 to August 01, 2021, and at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello from July 13 to August 01, 2021. BORDERS ART FAIR is a contemporary art fair divided into three appointments (BODIES+CITIES SKIN, FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES) that presents collective and solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. The 2021 edition will represent a forum for direct exchange of ideas and contacts between collectors, artists, photographers, designers and art professionals. The art fair features paintings, sculptures, photography art, installations, video art and live performance. The last edition of BORDERS ART FAIR took place in Venice in 2020, presenting a great selection of more than 500 art and architecture works by 250 artists and architects, coming from 36 countries. Never as this time the concept of the exhibition seems to be epochal: humankind coexists at a distance to stay closer. The new invisible borders generated by the Covid-19 are creating new ways of living everyday life, new human connections, re-thinking common spaces and entire cities. Could the new “borders” be the solution? We invite artists, architects and designers to be inspired by this new era, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears that brings humankind to change, to transform and to evolve our inner world. The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the human being and the city, the city and the ground; it analyzes the idea of human and urban borders, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which the limits, the borders, shape its attitudes and behaviors, limiting freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The human being reacts by breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid cities”, where differences create new possibilities instead of being social barriers. FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES analyzes human beings as a living mosaic composed of many different pieces, mixing together to form a whole. In art people are mixed together in a melting pot of sensation and fluctuating emotions. The challenge is to see all those fragmented identities, recognize and use them to see things through many different points of view and imagination in order to break all barriers and boundaries. There is not a unique perspective on our unconscious beings and identities, showing how things are rarely whole or perfect.
