Danh Vo Special Edition
Venice Biennale 2015
Often inspired by the landscape of his locale, Danish-Vietnamese artist Danh Vo, who currently resides in Mexico, was inspired by the tradition and spirit of Casa Dragones and our shared passion for Mexican culture and the arts.
As part of his installation of mothertongue at the Danish Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia, 56th International Art Exhibition, Danh Vo deliberately places a bottle of Casa Dragones Joven Sipping Tequila on a 1949 Danish wooden table inlaid with 30 silver coins.
Casa Dragones hosted a party honoring the exhibition at the Danish Pavillion, where guests, artists and curators including Danh Vo, Suzanne Ghez, Marian Goodman, Mauricio Guillén and Rirkrit Tiravanija enjoyed Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco on the rocks.
“Danh Vo is one of the most important and innovative figures on the international art scene,” says the Danish Arts Foundation’s Committee for Visual Arts Project Funding, who selected the Vo to represent Denmark at this year’s Venice Biennale.
To celebrate this remarkable curation, Casa Dragones and Danh Vo have created a new Special Edition 56th Venice Biennale – Danish Pavilion collection. Each bottle is directed by the artist and hand-inscribed with calligraphy by the artist’s father, Phung, whose beautiful calligraphy is often present in his work.
