The Sound of Many Waters

17.04.2024 – 27.05.2024

To coincide with the 60th edition of the Venice Biennale, Roman Road is pleased to present The Sound of Many Waters, a solo exhibition curated by Marisa Bellani dedicated to the young Thai painter Channatip Chanvipava. Staged in the intimate setting of a 17th-century Venetian ‘dimora’ the exhibition unveils eight new works exploring identities, belonging and subjective memory.


Aligning with this year’s Biennale theme Foreigners Everywhere, Bellani turns to water as a powerful reference to address the concepts of queer identity and connection in a divided world. These are vibrantly expressed in Chanvipava’s work which navigates queer sensibilities with immense power and emotion. Water, in this instance, becomes a symbol of both connection and division, resonating with the complexities of queer identity.

The exhibition will be on view at Dimora ai Santi
Calle Larga Giacinto Gallina, Canneregio 6381, 30121, Venezia
