Leviathan. An episodic narrative by Shezad Dawood, Palazzina Canonica and Fortuny Factory, Venice, Italy

7 May - 24 September 2017

An exhibition of a new and ambitious body of work by Shezad Dawood across two sites in Venice to coincide with the 57th Art Biennale. The show marks the launch of Leviathan, a ten-part film cycle conceived and directed by Dawood that will unfold over the next three years.

In dialogue with a wide range of marine biologists, oceanographers, political scientists, neurologists and trauma specialists, Leviathan explores the notions of marine welfare, migration and mental health and their possible interconnections.

Leviathan is presented by the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, the Institute of Marine Sciences and Fortuny and curated by Alfredo Cramerotti.
