The Fondazione Claudio Buziol hosts one of the events of TINA B. Festival of International Art of Prague, which will take place in Venice from the 5th to the 21st of November.

 After the press conference we invite you to take part in the FRAGILE performance by Jenny Marketou.

FRAGILE is a public performance/action which combines art and fashion using the medium of the body, sign and paper in order to stimulate reflections about public spaces, social meetings and art itself.

FRAGILE is enacted by living bodies dressed in paper dresses specially designed for FRAGILE while they are walking doing things as a collective creative process and they create situations throughout a predetermined route around Venice. The artist has determined the route of FRAGILE and it is based on the trail that Ralph Rumney (the only English member of the psycho geographical association) undertook in Venice (1957). 

Jenny Marketou, born in Athens, Greece, based in New York City. Her work exists in the intersection of social public art, new media, video, installation, public performances . Her work is ephemeral but structurally repeatable and has the ability to engage viewers participation and to create interaction between context and creativity. The performance will take place at the headquarters of Fondazione Claudio Buziol, Mangilli-Valmarana palace, and after it will move across Venice’s significant places returning at last to the starting point.
