I was lucky enough to visit The Venice biennale this summer. It was so inspiring, and I wish I had more time than just the two days.

First;  Venice is beautiful! And second; it´s hard to select only a few artists, but I´ll try.

The Momentum Biennale, Moss

The Momentum Biennale, situated in Moss, Norway, was filled with art that appealed to all the senses. Smell molecules on walls, a magical forest in an Oculus Rift gear, a full sized, spinning car, a room filled with fog, a house of acrylic, neon fur, a floating rock, a walk in a spiral of stinging nettle. Simply magical.
