Nel suo progetto per il Padiglione Albanese, Iva Lulashi evoca la "teoria del bicchiere d'acqua". Questa teoria, risalente al periodo pre-rivoluzionario russo e legata alla pensatrice femminista Alexandra Kollontai (1872 - 1952), si basa sull'idea di una rivoluzione sessuale in cui gli impulsi sono percepiti come una semplice necessità da soddisfare con la stessa spensieratezza con cui si beve un bicchiere d'acqua; ebbe una grande influenza sui circoli artistici di quegli anni ma fu immediatamente contrastata dall'apparato politico rivoluzionario.
L'acqua è la condizione basilare della vita, proprio come l'amore, e sia la vita che l'amore si muovono in uno stato continuo di fragilità. Amore, sesso e desiderio possono dare significato o rovinare le nostre vite, e sono l'unica grande realtà che è eternamente rivoluzionaria, tellurica per sua costituzione, su cui il potere, sia esso politico, economico o ideologico, non è in grado di imporre fermamente il proprio controllo.

Exhibited for the first time since entering the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, Regina José Galindo’s Tierra (2013) explores connections between the exploitation of labor, resources, and human life in Guatemala. Presented at a larger-than-life scale, Galindo stands naked on a parcel of land that is excavated by an encroaching bulldozer. Conjuring imagery of machine-dug mass graves, the work draws attention to the massacre of hundreds of thousands of Indigenous people, mostly Maya Ixil, during the Guatemalan Civil War (1960–96). As the excavator digs around her, the artist stands fixed and unrelenting. Galindo recalls, “That is what I wanted to underscore in Tierra: around me there is nothing but chaos and theft, but I remain on my feet, ready to fight, to defend the land that roots me.” This presentation is part of a collaboration between The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1, where works from MoMA will premiere annually.
Regina José Galindo is a visual artist and poet who works in performance. Galindo has participated in the 49th, 51st, 53rd, and 54th editions of the Venice Biennale, as well as documenta 14 (2017). In 2005, she was awarded the Golden Lion Award for young artists at the Venice Biennale. Galindo was awarded the Grand Prize of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Art in 2011 and received a 2021 Robert Rauschenberg Award. Her works are held in numerous collections, including the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Tate Modern, London; and Princeton University Art Museum.
Edson Luli will be featured in the section Can You Sea?: The Mediterranean as a Political Body. His art offers a profound and provocative exploration of the Mediterranean as a political entity, inviting viewers to reflect on the geopolitical and social dynamics that define it.
On the other hand, Zehra Doğan will present her work in the section titled The Matri-archive of the Mediterranean. Her presence in this section provides a unique and powerful perspective on the role of women and matriarchal traditions in the Mediterranean context, shedding light on stories often overlooked but deeply meaningful.
Prometeo Gallery Ida Pisani is proud to support Edson Luli and Zehra Dogan in this opportunity to exhibit at the Malta Biennale, an event that serves as a catalyst for meaningful discussions and critical reflections on contemporary art and Mediterranean issues.

The Madrid-based artist Santiago Sierra presents 52 Canvases Exposed to Mexico City’s Air (2019) in the Saligman Family Atrium. Known for his provocative performance and installation art that deals with the topic of social inequities, the artist has created with this work a visualization of the toxicity of contemporary urban life.
Sierra created the 52 compositions—one for each week in a year—by placing adhesive-lacquered canvases on the floor in a building in Mexico City with the windows open, allowing the air to settle on them. Each week he removed one canvas and had a conservator permanently fix the sediment that had gathered on its surface. The result is a disturbing time-lapse of noxious accumulation. 52 Canvases Exposed to Mexico City’s Air refers not only to pollution in Mexico City but also to the increase of airborne contaminants in congested areas around the world.
Over the past three decades Sierra’s work has also focused on capitalist labor relations in art-world contexts to underscore their dehumanizing effects. In this work he does not replicate the human-on-human cruelty explored in his earlier works, but rather employs art as direct evidence of environmental degradation. Sierra’s canvases also turn our attention toward the systems of power responsible for these current conditions, making us see anew not just the air but also the policies that contaminate our bodies.
The exhibition is curated by Meredith Malone, curator.
