Hristina Ivanoska and Yane Calovski present the installation 'We are in this alone' at the Macedonian Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale.
'We are all in this alone' by Hristina Ivanoska and Yane Calovski addresses the notion of faith as an emotional and intellectual state in today’s concurrent and multiple socio-political conditions. The project references a number of intricate sources: a fresco painting from the church of St. Gjorgi in Kurbinovo, painted by an unknown author in the 12th century, as well as writings by Simone Weil, Luce Irigaray, and personal notes by Paul Thek dating from the 1970s.
Szilárd Cseke represents Hungary, Flaka Haliti represents Kosovo and in front of the Ukrainian pavilion Nikita Kadan's public sculpture refers to the past and the current war situation in Ukraine.
