Diohandi presented an extensive installation titled Beyond Reform in the greek pavilion, as part of the 54th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia. This exhibition was curated by Maria Marangou, and was commissioned by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

Taking as her starting point the overall theme of the Biennale, namely ILLUMInations, Diohandi created a site specific installation. This major intervention explored space and time and saw the pavilion’s interior and exterior revised.

Diohandi remarks in reference to her installation: “My research understands the theme in its deepest, most basic sense. Starting with what is a very specific, concrete, strictly rational space, I am intervening to reform the space, one that is different in terms of both structure and emotional charge, where the dialogue between viewer and work/space is at once ambiguous and animated. I am shaping the pavilion’s image, both outside and inside: the entire space is remodeled, although none of these interventions will actually affect the existing structure. Sound and light, indispensable to the work, will also feature.”

The book was published on the occasion of Diohandi’s participation at the 54th Venice Biennale, 2011.
