Screening and Performance of Happy Ending Happy Ever After
A wedding dress in Venice and in Space by Sophie Molins music Michael Nyman

About

After her divorce during the 2007 Venice Biennale Molins filmed her wedding dress as she threw it into a Venetian canal. For Alive in the Universe during this Biennale she launched another divorced woman’s wedding dress into space, giving new narratives and possibilities for these charged symbolic objects.

In the dark immersive space of the Palazzo Pesaro the life size white dress performs a ghostly dance around the viewer to a poignant score by Michael Nyman. The work could almost seem romantic but static and radio waves interrupt the score.
