First Look: BGL at the 2015 Venice Biennale

 

BGL have outdone themselves with the Canada Pavilion this year. It stands completely transformed as a neighbourhood dépanneur with Loto-Québec signage, Molson beer signs and off-the-shelf spaghetti sauce. Through a beaded curtain you enter an empty pavilion, then a craft shop with piled paint cans. The pièce de résistance, however, is the staircase to the second floor where you drop a euro coin into a contraption that ferries it back into the pavilion to rest euro by euro inside the existing windows like in a midway game.
