Italy's Venice Biennial has opened its doors to a new, selected artwork by 57-year-old Iranian contemporary artist Reza Lavassani. Tehran-born and based, Lavassani practices on various media. He began working on the installation Life in 2012 and worked on the piece for more than three years. Through a deliberate choice of papier-mache, the artist underlines the literal and symbolic significance of recycling. The piece is a lyric narrative of life's splendor and glory and an emblematic visualization of the passage of time.

The awe-inspiring presentation, executed in Lavansani's signature aesthetic language, portrays the artist's belief in recreation and the eternal cycle of life. Life is a focus on theatricality of sculpture and installation.

Lavassani is taking part in the 58th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia (Venice Biennale), dubbed Of Being and Singing, in Venice, Italy. The program runs ‪from May 11th to November 24th.‬ The pre-opening session will be ‪from May 8‬ to 10.
