Little Venice and other possible realities

“The name of Venezuela is said to have originated from an expedition led by Alonso de Ojeda in 1499. Upon arriving at the Venezuelan coast, the stilt houses in the area of Lake Maracaibo reminded the navigator, Amerigo Vespucci, of the city of Venice, so he named the region “Veneziola”, lit- erally “little Venice.” Montiel-Soto regarding her research for this exhibition

Here she becomes the new or “re” colonizer, occupy-ing our thoughts and imagination, creating new definitions of space, place and time.”
