The illuminated nation of Gelatin presents their hottest sculpture ever. Performers from all over the world become Gelatin to chop wood, flirt, play guitar, feed the furnace 24/7, be themselves beautifully and keep the fire burning.
A wood fired furnace in the Giardino delle Vergini (Arsenale) melts shards into a puddle of hot liquid glass. A very big lava puddle of hot liquid glass. Logs, fumes, smoke, cracks, heat, energy.
Together with: Ben Washington, Christoph Harringer, Christoph Meier, Daniel Kelly, Fridrik Svanur Sigurdarson, Gabriel Loebell-Herberstein, Gudmundur Hallgrímsson, Michael Bäckström, Salvatore Viviano, Schuyler Maehl, Tom Van Camp, Japanther, Philipp Quehenberger & Elin, Nina, Günther Gerdes and Andreas Schlaegel (Elvis)
