Atelier des Enfants: Driant Zeneli

Palazzo Grassi
23/10 - 24/10/2021


From Saturday 23 to Sunday 24 October
Atelier des Enfants with Driant Zeneli
Palazzo Grassi

Atelier des Enfants is a project dedicated to art and education and to the relationship between artistic practices and educational research open to children aged 7 to 11.

The first guest of this new programme is the artist and filmmaker Driant Zeneli (1983, Shkoder, Albania). His films, installations and performances investigate the artist’s attraction for illusions, failures, attempts and dreams or utopia as elements that generate alternative points of view.

He leads the workshop “C'era una volta... il Mose e la Medusa”, inspired by Venice and dedicated to robotics as a discipline deeply related to the idea of utopia, in which humanities and sciences come together.

Driant Zeneli invites the young participants to imagine possible worlds by drawing and building a jellyfish robot capable of cleaning the MOSE, which appears as a sea monster, and will work on the interaction between man and machine.

The participants are also accompanied by a team of young researchers who have invented Hydrocarbot, a robot that can clear water of hydrocarbons and recycle them.

From Monday 13 to Friday 18 December, the second Atelier des Enfants will be led by Quattrox4, which has been promoting contemporary circus as an artistic language since 2011. Find out more
