Xhixha’s “Iceberg” was first exhibited on San Servolo Island for the for the Syrian Arab Republic pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015). Its sheer weight and size seems to defy what could possibly float on the water: 700 kg; 300 cm x 600 cm x 250 cm. “Iceberg” is a poignant reminder of the impact of climate change upon fragile Venice. As we face this work, we see that our reflection stands beside our own culpability.
