Arsenale and Vergini Garden - China Pavilion - The inaugural China Pavilion, curated by Cai Guo-Qiang entitled Virgin Garden: Emersion conists of two spaces - inside and outside. The interior a former naval oil storage facility features a video installation - Shout 2005 by Xu Zhen - video footage of forty sites in Shangai that depict a sudden scream by an unknown party halting strangers on the street as they turn towards a hidden camera - it explores the instintive and universal human response to the unexpected - hey it's Candid Camera! All Kidding aside this is such a strong and beautiful pavilion, it merits a visit.
