Il Diario del Vento / Wind Diary
Il Diario del Vento / Wind Diary is the artist’s book published on the occasion of GIRO, Olaf Nicolai’s contribution to the German Pavilion of the 56th International Art Exhibition—La Biennale Arte di Venezia, 2015. For the entire duration of the Biennale, three people resided on the roof of the German Pavilion. Unseen by visitors they carried out a mysterious task, operating a shadow economy under the blazing sun. The performers were only visible from time to time, when they step towards the edge of the roof to throw boomerangs. They sought the most suitable trajectory at which to throw the object and its ideal shape for this purpose. They produce the boomerangs in a workshop, the vague contours of which can be discerned only from a distance.
