1. Lydia Venieri construit une oeuvre où la Nature, à la fois orgasmique et funèbre, se glorifie à travers la mythologie grecque, l'alchimie médiévale et les éléments les plus sauvages, les plus irrationnels et les plus mystiques de l'orthodoxie méditerranéenne.
    Dans la Conspiration des Dauphins, ces derniers mène l'humanité à une exode Cathartique et planétique où
    les mouvements silencieux de population prennent la forme d'une procession rédemptrice derrière l'épitaphe fleurie du Vendredi Saint enchanteresque.
    Dans sa création, elle manie par d'ingénieux passages les thèmes de l'exil, du nomadisme, de la migration global et de l'errance en faisant des allés retours permanent entre références aux contes de fée, drames métaphysiques et enjeux géopolitiques.

    La Conspiration des Dauphins transporte le spectateur dans un univers ésotérique au caractère sibyllin, où l’enfant est le seul capable de triompher.

  2. The peak of a conspiracy is the coincidence.

    Nature decides to get rid of the humans but the dolphins conceive a survival plan for them, a Planetic Exodus.

    The human kind becomes a nomadic mushroom-like organism.

    They follow the stage of initiation to the collective memory, a farewell party, and the mystery of the communion of a last supper where humans and animals gain their common conscience.

    At last, the journey follows. Finally, they uncover the Dolphin Conspiracy: There is no goal for the silent movement of populations since Eden was never found. Everyone is part of the march of the chosen of life. They follow the eternal procession of big Friday.

    After Hibernation and Forever After, The Dolphin Conspiracy completes Lydia Venieri’s trilogy. The first two parts were shown in Greece, Paris, and New York.

  3. "Το άκρον άωτον μιας σκευωρίας είναι η σύμπτωση »
    Γλυπτά που αιωρούνται σαν τρισδιάστατες σκέψεις ,κλεισμένα σε γυάλινες μπάλες, μνημεία ζώων, ανθρώπινα μανιτάρια ,χρυσά δισκοπότηρα και φυτρωμένα σπίτια, μοιάζουν μ’ απομεινάρια μιας εποποιίας που βγήκε στο γιουσουρούμ αλλά και με ανθισμένα ερείπια μιας νεκροπολιτείας. Στα επιτοίχια έργα, ψηφιακοί πίνακες και φωτογραφίες , τυπωμένοι σε satin , διηγούνται την ίδια ιστορία, τη Σκευωρία των Δελφινιών:
    Η μεγάλη νομοτέλεια αποφασίζει να απαλλάξει τη Γη από την ανθρώπινη ύπαρξη , αλλά τα δελφίνια συλλαμβάνουν ένα πλάνο διάσωσης ,μια πλανητική έξοδο.
    Το ανθρώπινο είδος μεταβάλλεται σε ένα νομαδικό, σαν μύκητα οργανισμό.

    Ακολουθούν τα στάδια της μύησης στην επιλεκτική μνήμη , το πάρτυ των αποχαιρετισμών , το μυστήριο της κοινωνίας του Μυστικού Δείπνου όπου άνθρωποι και ζώα αποκτούν κοινή συνείδηση.

    Στο τέλος αποκαλύπτεται η σκευωρία των δελφινιών : δεν υπάρχει προορισμός στην βουβή μετακίνηση των πληθυσμών, μια κι η γη της επαγγελίας δεν βρέθηκε κι όλοι τώρα συμμετέχουν στη πορεία των διαλέκτων της ζωής κι επίσημα ακολουθούν την αέναη λιτανεία της Μεγάλης Παρασκευής.

    Μετά την Χειμερία Νάρκη και το Forever After, η Σκευωρία των Δελφινιών κλείνει την τριλογία της Βενιέρη που έχει παρουσιαστεί στην Ελλάδα στο Παρίσι και την Νέα Υόρκη.

  4. (2002, 17 minutes) The story takes place in a sculpture installation created by Lydia Venieri. The music is improvised from children's toys and the voices generated with an Apple mac's synthesizer. It was filmed with a Canon ZR10 and edited with Apple's iMovie.
    Yuri, a mad scientist, attempts to awaken the human conscience. He imagines a Sleeping Beauty Conscience imprisoned at the deepest level of Universal Sleep. He decides to force people into deep hibernation and then steal their dreams.

    He cultivates mythological beings: Humans crossbred with everlasting plants. His dream compressor brings dreams from the immaterial world into our dimension.
    In Yuri's Paradise the little boy and the little girl are captives. Esmet, his Caucasian assistant, wanders around and Maria Callas appears sometimes through the dream compressor.

    Yuri is a contemporary anti-hero: His puritanical
    ideas spring form the fear of degeneration. As in an ancient tragedy the heros address the public. Speaking their thoughts and developing the philosophy of their
    acts.

    While they awaiting The End, the King Monkey
    appears announcing that Yuri has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace. Like in a modern commedia dell'Arte the End is postponed.

    In an Epilogue Yuri develops his theory that fire is not an element.

  5. Suburban deers, shooting stars, phosphor bombs, one thousand and one Gazan Nights.

    The explosions you see within the video are not fireworks as the first might seem, but the deadly rain of phosphor bombs that are being used illegally on the population of Gaza and Iraq. I use the deers because they are symbolic of the suburban innocence, at the same time sacred like the soul of a burnt forest. I make them stare at the bombs as if they were looking at the star of Bethlehem trying to read the future and I have them singing "Tomorrow" which is an altruistic and nostalgic song of friendship.

    I use the real voice of a young Israeli soldier. He's in the war defending his country. Like a thorn, like a flash of truth, his denunciation of the use of phosphor bombs is the last poem: The new Apocalypse.

    In the background Gaza appears as if from the thousand and one nights. While the deers look on with their wide open eyes, beating hearts and standing ears are the image that we don't like to think about: Fear. They are exposed and unprotected, wondering, with their hearts frozen before they realized what has happened.

    We are they.
