Following Rachel Lee Hovnanian through the narrow streets of Venice, the multimedia artist points out haunts along the way.
It is the market of the floating gondola turned peasant where she buys fruits and vegetables from three nice young men. This is the channel where his 200-pound white bronze angel sculptures and bases were mistakenly delivered. It’s the rugged path where she and her team transported these cherub busts to her exhibition “Angels Listening: An Interactive Cathartic Performance,” a side event of the 59th Venice Biennale 2022. It’s her favorite hardware store.
