Since May 2021, the multimedia exhibition “Territorial Agency: Oceans in Transformation” has reopened to the public in the former church of San Lorenzo, the Venetian headquarters of Ocean Space. The result of a three-year research project, the exhibition curated by Daniela Zyman and commissioned by TBA21-Academy to Territorial Agency is one of the most detailed studies on the state of the oceans in the Anthropocene era. It will remain on view through August 29.
It takes stock of the current situation of our planet’s marine ecosystems Oceans in Transformation, the exhibition created by Territorial Agency – the studio founded by architects John Palmesino and Ann-Sofi Rönnskog – which brings together the big data produced by scientific research and transforms them into visual maps capable of informing and sensitizing the public on the devastating impact of human activities on the ocean system.
One of the most obvious and well-known consequences of these actions is the rise in sea level. The installation on the façade of the former church of San Lorenzo indicates the level of sea level rise that will be reached by the end of the century, and specifically that which will affect the Venice Lagoon.
