Its interior views show the signs of time, and as for its exterior views, abandoned unfinished works.

A “corrosion” of things that is not due to time, but to the failures of urbanization, to the financial markets with the bankruptcies that they entail.

The works of Anthony Hernandez exhibited in the central pavilion of the Giardini at the Biennale show a completely different aesthetic approach.

His “Screened Pictures” series consists of photos taken through perforated metal grids at bus stops in Los Angeles.
