As part of the Danish and Nordic Pavilions exhibition by Elmgreen & Dragset as curators/artists, a body floats in a pool outside a home which is being sold at the Biennale of Venice on Thursday, June 4, 2009. (Todd Heisler/The New York Times)

"As part of the Danish and Nordic Pavilions' exhibition by Elmgreen & Dragset as curators/artists, a "body" floats in a pool outside a home which is being "sold" at the Biennale of Venice on Thursday, June 4, 2009."

A London artist once explained to me that art often doesn’t take on meaning to the artist until its completion – the press releases and exhibit handbills are composed solely for those who seek explanation.  If this is true, why do we care so much about what art ‘means’?

The Big Picture gets it just right with their coverage of this year’s Venice Biennale installations. The glossy photojournalism is almost as satisfying as the minimal commentary.

From a first glance, American David Maisel’s photo sets couldn’t show more different subjects in terms of scale and sensibility, but his eye for natural colour gradients captivates me and the thought he puts in to his work is what I only dream most photographers do. The Mining Project shows abandoned copper mines in the southern States, and Library of Dust captures the abandoned remains of cremated psychiatric patients from the former Oregon State Insane Asylum.
