Floating Cinema - Acque Sconosciute

Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana takes part to the third edition of Floating Cinema - Unknown Waters, a cycle of screenings that takes place exclusively on the waters of the Venetian Lagoon from 25 August to 10 September 2022. Films, videos, performances, music and theater involving both international and local artists are presented on a stage and screen in the waters behind the island of Giudecca, at the end of Rio de Sant’Eufemia.

The theme of the third edition is the surreal, dreamlike and hallucinatory visions, the absurd.

On Tuesday 30 August Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana presents, as part of the cycle, two films by artists from the Pinault Collection:

  • Pruitt-Igoe Falls (2009, 7') by Cyprien Gaillard
  • Excerpt of environmental recording of The Sense of Silence Foundation (2')
  • The Snorks: a concert for creatures (2012, 28') by Loris Gréaud
