Could you tell us something more about the concept The Eight Climate (What does art do?), this year’s biennial theme?
Maria Lind: Imagine that you are walking on a ramp leading from one floor to the next in a big exhibition space. In the corner of your eye you notice something on the long smooth white wall: in one place it looks like cracks, with the wall paint peeling off, and in other places it is a black thread seemingly stitching the wall together. Something is falling apart and is being repaired, at the same time. This is the subtle GB11 installation by Mumbai-based artist Prajakta Potnis who is interested in how we experience space, its evocative qualities. Art sensitizes you to discreet and yet structurally important things, just as it sometimes interferes head on in power structures.
