La Biennale di Venezia Tastes Like Tequila
Celebrated Danish-Vietnamese artist Danh Vo and Casa Dragones created two special edition tequila bottles featured in La Biennale di Venezia, 56th International Art Exhibition.
This tequila company is known for its unique and detailed bottles, with hand signed and numbered labels. Now, with Vo's collaboration, these new bottles are even more exclusive.
Vo's pieces often feature his father's calligraphic work, and for these two bottles directed by the artist, his father, Phung Vo, hand inscribed his signature. One of them is featured in the Slip of the Tongue exhibition at Punta Della Dogana Pinault Collection Museum. Besides the fact that tequila is part of an art exhibition in Italy, it is the first time an artist is selected as curator for this museum.
The second bottle is showcased at the Biennale's Danish Pavilion, where Vo is the featured artist. As part of his mothertongue installation, Vo deliberately places the special edition bottle of Casa Dragones Joven Sipping Tequila on a 1949 Danish wooden table inlaid with 30 silver coins.
Even though there are only two original pieces, the company produced a special edition of only 150 bottles hand inscribed with the exhibition title. This is not only a boost for Casa Dragones as a brand, but an effort to promote this Mexican blue agave spirit as one of the finest drinks in the world.
