Xavier Veilhan: Hitting the right note at the 57th Venice Biennale

His installations have intrigued art lovers from Stockholm to Seoul. Xavier Veilhan’s monumental sculptures, architectural angles and immersive musical experiences have kept the French artist at the forefront of the contemporary scene for decades.

His latest work, "Studio Venezia", will be representing France at this year’s Biennale: an installation at the crossroads of visual art and music. Veilhan talks to us about art as resistance and why a visit to a dovecote inspired an exhibition decades later.
