The IMPACT Salle 2 exhibition was a unique space amongst the Bienalle venues as it was soft carpeted and flooded with natural light. It also housed a wide range of exhibits. Two of these were three dimentional.  They were work by Kiochi Yamamoto and Ana Vivoda from Japan/USA and Croatia respectively.  Kiochi Explained that his original submission was a kite, but had been lost in transit.  He had made the hanging print artwork overnight from etchings he had with him and conceived of them being hung from the celiing. Two join them together he had boiled rice and used the mixture to glue the paper prints together.  5 Days later he replaced the impromtu piece with the kite. https://yamamotoprintmakin.com

To the right in the streaming sunlight from one of the traditional windows was a series of hanging prints composed of discreet photographic images and light coloured, but dense marks. This work was intriguingly beautiful and tiled Interactions. It attracted many viewers who enjoyed interacting with the 15 prints. Some were even drawn to touch the delicate works. The QR code carried the information about the Croatian artist : Ana Vivoda. I poped her name into Google and she came up in facebook. I messaged her to ask if she was still in Santander? "I am next door in the symposium" came the immeadiate reply. We met and Ana explained the motivation behind the self portrait was to give a number of impressions of herself, rather than a single image. She also explained her technique - very fine, hardly perecptible photographic traces of herself digitally printed that were added to with light ink through lino cuts. The balance of the inks, images, marks and rag paper hung with small clips and transparent lines came together to make a work demading return visits and interactions.
