French Pavillon- Biennale Venice 2011

Christian Boltanski has built a huge scaffold supporting a long conveyor-belt, printed with babies, displayed birth- and starving-rate, made a game out of it and called it “Chance”.”The unfolding of life and the incessant rhythm of birth raise the question of the universal and the unique in a way, to ponder what distinguishes one from the other…” (Jean-Hubert Martin)

Having a seat after this interview, relaxing from running around for hours, on one of three very old chairs placed beside this pavillon, a strange whispering voice stated to ask “is it the last time?” repeatedly, so that I needed some time until I recognized that it was comming from my chair.-spooky!

For those who don´t have the ability to visit venice until end of november and also for those who just like killing time, they´ve installed a homepage where you can play this game “Chance” too.
Christian Boltanski promises to send you a surprise in the case you win.
