"The Holy See participates this year for the first time in la Biennale di Venezia with a pavilion inspired by Book of Genesis. For the second of the interlinked exhibition trio named Creazione, De-Creazione and Ri-Creazione, the Vatican approached the photographer Josef Koudelka. A 22-page folder with design by AleŇ° Najbrt accompanies the exhibition of nine large format panoramic photographs speaking about “the opposition of man to the world and to moral and natural laws, and material destruction deriving from the loss of ethical meaning.” [AleŇ° Najbrt website]
