Venieri is well know for her evocative sculpture installations which bridge mythology with current events, and for her ability to combine humor with selflection on human conditions in our times, through her characters that are taken from mythology, history, fairy tales and daily life. In her stories dreams reinforce reality and reality reinforce dreams.

The provocative visualizations of the universe of Venieri’s work offer a Potnian statement about the world in flux in which we live.
