The Mondrian Fan Club was founded by David Medalla and Adam Nankervis in New York City in 1992. Both create collaborative performances and installations, drawings and photographic impromptus, in homage to the artist Piet Mondriaan. This year the performance artist Christoph Both-Asmus joins them for the performances in the frame of the Venice Biennale.

The Mondrian Fan Club, Medalla’s and Nankervis´ interventions meet at specific junctures, which are captured for their ethereal position and action in time and place, and exhibited sparkely, in an invocation of the meeting points where the two artists have converged and shared, and collaborated by inspiration of the environment which they inhabit.
