at this year’s venice architecture biennale, serbia has presented ‘heroic free shipping’ — an exhibition curated by stefan basic, ana sulkic, and igor sjeverac. sited inside venice’s giardini, the pavilion is one of 67 national participants exploring the theme: ‘reporting from the front’.

 

the exhibition draws attention to the struggles of young architects trying to establish a position and path within the industry. stefan basic, ana sulk and igor sjeverac — three young architects themselves — have expressed their concern through an installation that invites visitors to listen, sit and interact with the accompanying elements of the pavilion.

a cerulean blue, ramp-like form curves up the walls and acts as the focal element of the exhibition, representing the idea of ‘work’. through the combination of a background soundtrack of typing keyboards, plug sockets on the ground, and stacks of cover letters, the exhibit hopes to convey young architects’ attempts to pursue their chosen career path despite adverse circumstances.
