“de vries has documented his residency in venice and the lagoon in a travelogue. the collection of framed curiosities is a visual and material report of what he has perceived in the venetian habitat, comprising both small groupings shown in an orderly or chaotic fashion and photographs that chart the natural world in snapshots. his eye is caught not only by nature, but also by the traces of human interaction – how people change the environment and how it, in turn, appropriates culture.” From http://www.designboom.com/art/herman-de-vries-dutch-pavilion-venice-art-biennale-05-13-2015/gallery/image/dutch-pavilion-venice-biennale-herman-de-vries-designboom-62/
