Simon Battisti, Leah Whitman-Salkin, and design collective Åbäke have been selected to represent Albania at the 15th International Biennale in Venice in 2016, with their project entitled, “I Have Left You the Mountain.” The project was selected from an open call for proposals from the Albanian Ministry of Culture that was held earlier this fall.

I Have Left You the Mountain seeks to “evoke places and loss through polifonic singing, or multi part lyric,” and to display a theme of displacement and migration, both of which have been prevalent in Albanian history, and recent European events. Through minimalism, the Pavilion will encourage people to think, and fill the space with personal memories, silence, and music. The program additionally includes performances, lectures, a book, and a record on displacement and migration.
