Biennale de La Biche is the smallest contemporary art biennale in the world. With my colleague Alex Urso we have selected fourteen artists from all over the world. Although differing from one another, each participant was asked to conceive an artwork able to coexist with the environment of the location: the enchanting Caribbean island of Ilet de La Biche near Guadeloupe.

The title chosen for the 2017 edition is In a land of. This sentence, suspended and imprecise, wants to be a suggestion, an incentive to grasp the essence of the island as a geographically isolated place, but above all, a spot distant from all the limits and conventions of the contemporary art system. Moreover, the location is a transitory place, because it is slowly disappearing: due to the rising sea levels, the island is in fact gradually submerging, and in a few decades, it is destined to disappear.
