About

New Zealand-born, London-based artist Francis Upritchardis representing her country at this year’s Biennale. Taking over three rooms of a palazzo, ‘Save Yourself’ is an imaginary landscape populated by strange miniature figures, who seem to belong both in the past and the future. In this film, Francis talks us through the exhibition, and explains what motivates her.
