Venues:  Palazzo Bembo , Venice, Italy
Room C12
Date: 20 Apr 2024 - 24 Nov 2024
Organiser: European Cultural Centre - Italy

This immersive exhibition, part of the 7th edition of the Personal Structures exhibition, organised by the European Cultural Centre, held during the 60th Venice Art Biennale, runs from April 20 to November 24, 2024. It intertwines mythical narratives with urgent global concerns, showcasing the duo's innovative fusion of contemporary art, activism, and multimedia storytelling.
The theme of this year's Personal Structures exhibition "Beyond Boundaries," perfectly aligns with the concept of "Whisper of the Sea". The project challenges the audience to look beyond the tangible, engaging with the environment on a profound, unseen level, in line with the exhibition's ethos of transcending conventional barriers for a more integrated global perspective.
At the heart of Concept2048's work is a commitment to envisioning a brighter future, using art to challenge perceptions, and inspire transformative thought and action across societal, and environmental realms. Ekaterina Perekopskaya and Rostyslav Brenych, the creative force behind Concept2048, craft a multisensory journey with "Whisper of the Sea." This project brings to life the AquaSouls-ancient beings from the water depths, imbued with the wisdom of the Earth in their DNA. Once in harmony with humans, they now come ashore seeking to mend a gap widened by people's disregard for global harmony, aiming to heal humanity's wounds and halt the ongoing cycle of destruction.
"In an era calling for urgent action, "Whisper of the Sea'' transcends conventional exhibition boundaries, serving as a clarion, an immersive call from the depths to awaken a collective conscience," explains Perekopskaya. Brenych adds, "We aim to fully engage the senses, inviting the audience to immerse themselves in the project, reflecting our commitment to using art as a catalyst for change and innovation across communities and ecosystems."
The Palazzo Bembo is an ancient and historically significant building, situated in front of the famous Rialto Bridge and Grand Canal. Its location makes it an ideal venue to showcase the duo's exhibition, which aims to encourage a vital dialogue on our interconnection with the natural world and urging a harmonious and balanced coexistence.
