“The Milk of Dreams” is the theme of the 59th Venice International Art Biennale in 2022, referring to the book of the surrealist artist Leonora Carrington describing a magical world in which life is constantly rethought through the prism of the imagination.

Cecilia Alemani, the curator of this Biennale, has thus selected more than two hundred artists from 58 countries, whose works will lead us on an imaginary journey through the metamorphoses of bodies and the definitions of the human.

Today, we live in a world invaded by technology.

The interactions between our bodies and electronic objects are increasingly invasive, creating a virtual world where everyone can change and transform into something or someone else.

The Covid pandemic and environmental disasters challenge our anthropomorphism, showing us that we are neither invincible nor self-sufficient.

Ursuta, Predators 'R Us
We are part of a symbiotic network of interdependencies with other species and our entire planet.

How is our definition of the human being evolving? What constitutes our life, and how is it different from plants and animals?

The works of the artists exhibited at the 2022 Venice Art Biennale attempt to answer these questions by focusing on three main themes:

The representation of bodies and their metamorphosis, the fusion between the organic and the artificial.
The relationship between the human being and the machine.
The links between our bodies and nature.

Cecilia Alemani, through the works of the artists of this 2022 Art Biennale, wants us to plunge into a “re-enchantment of the world”, the milk of dreams!
