Capital Pool is a sixty-five square meters black vinyl pool at the center of the Romanian Pavilion in Giardini della Biennale. It invites the public to contemplate their own reflection and that of the surrounding space on its liquid mirroring surface. At the same time, Capital Pool works as a “wishing well” where visitors can throw coins, a well-known ritual. The money offered by the public, accumulated during the six month exhibition period, will be constituted in an autonomous fund, that at the end of the show will be allocated to a non-governmental, alternative or other forms of independent social initiative dealing with the threatened cultural heritage, mass tourism, and flooding in Venice. The Associated Public is invited to discuss and give their opinion on who should be the recipient of the Capital Pool Autonomous Fund.
