Amebe, Biennale Arte 2022, Namibian Pavilion, Seek to believe, art installation, site-specific installation, binoculars

Conceived for the Namibian Pavilion at the 59th Biennale Arte in Venice.

“Seek to Believe” is a series of binoculars installed on La Certosa island in Venice, at the Pavilion’s location. It’s an invitation to “seek to believe” or “try to believe”, because without research there can’t be discovery of a “belief” and vice versa. Lenses are artifacts that distort vision to bring the image closer, while the imagination can be a lens for the soul that brings concepts and perhaps cultures closer. 2022
