In Dante Veritas
The exhibition based on the "Divine Comedy" by Dante Alighieri

The State Russian Museum, the Municipality of Venice and the sculptor Vasily Klyukin are pleased to present “In Dante Veritas”, a massive multimedia exhibition at Arsenale Nord, that takes place during the 2019 Venice Biennale.

A reverberation of Dante Alighieri’s 14th-century epic poem “Divine Comedy”, Klyukin explores themes of human vice and sin, Good and Evil, and reimagines Dante’s Inferno as an environmental collapse, the final consequence for our sin and non-action.

The collection represents a narrative that re-engineers the nine circles of hell, is comprised of over 100 multimedia elements including sculpture, installation, digital art, audio and light boxes. A significant part of the exhibition are 32 sculptural works, 22 of which represent human vices, like Anger, Hypocrite, Gluttony and Betrayal.

Also present “The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse” by their new names: Overpopulation, Misinformation, Extermitation and Pollution, at 3.5 meters high, these raise important global issues, ushering classical tropes into the modern era.

A scaled-down version of this exhibition was shown in Saint-Petersburg, at the State Russian Museum. More than 200 000 people visited the show during summer. It hit the record of the most attended show in the city in that period.
