Founded in Venice in 2009 by Tea Gualdo that combined her training for architecture with passion for contemporary art. le5venice contemporary art gallery occupies an ancient and prestigious space that overlooks one of the most beautiful Venetian Campos, Campo San Fantin, just in front the Fenice Theater. Originally the site was the old Mint of Venice, in the 700 occupied by the English Pharmacy, still retains its original structure with inlaid stone floors, wood paneling, statues. Next to this fascinating space, the white box, a small room dedicated to the temporary exibitions.
About my artwork
The gallery deals with contemporary art and photography, following a common thread that has characterized from the beginning. The decision to involve artists in projects that reflect a creative vision and concrete open, particularly attentive to the promotion of young talents, particularly women, that is inherent in the "le" that anticipates "5venice". From September 2010, in conjunction with the 12th International Architecture Biennale in Venice, with the exhibition "Walk evanescent," le5venice becomes Venetian reference for a selection of unique pieces created by the famous fashion designer Colomba Leddi from Milan. Besides the permanent collection, the Gallery offers limited editions created by artists and a line of accessories and jewelry in glass "le5venice".
Artists I like
In conjunction with the 54th Biennale di Arti Visive di Venezia, our gallery presented “ISLANDS. The femminine face of the sublime.” designed and edited by le5venice; is a format for art divided into chapters. The first chapter is dedicated to Ginostra ISLAND and has involved the artists Lisa Vanzetto, Melina Mulas e Viola Serra.
Currently at the Gallery is showing "Tapestry Sequences" to present the first tapestry of Marco Petrus. The idea was born from the desire to preserve the image complements the composition at the Italy Pavilion, at the 54ma international art exhibition of the Venice Biennale in the arsenal. The tapestry (190x143 cm) is made by the famous company Flanders Tapestries in limited edition of 50 pieces.

S F I B R E anatomie ritrovate
From Saturday, February 25th 2012 to Sunday March 25th 2012
Vernissage in the presence of the artist: Saturday February 25th from 5 p.m.
le5venice contemporary art gallery is pleased to present “SFIBRE anatomie ritrovate”, works by Annaclara Zambon.
I wonder if the Day, the Night, the Dawn and the Dusk, elongated and twisted bodies with no finished face, reassuring presences in the tight space of the Medici Chapels designed by Michelangelo Buonarroti, could find a new soul, thanks to Annaclara Zambon works?
The works of Annaclara Zambon take shape only through the body.
And the body, thanks to this unexpected "intrusion", finds a new anatomy changing in accord to the different moods that transmits the intruder. Even if it’s joy, confusion, wonder, serenity, fear.
From a strict technical knowledge about the fiber construction, the gesture, the FIBERLESS, for the artist becomes the artistic act.
The FIBERLESS are silk armors, sometimes RINGS, FEATHERS, ROOTS, WIRE, which can be looked at, avoided, touched, desidered, weared, but still CHOICES. Each armor is a unique tool indispensable to find a new sense of ourself in front of the mirror.
