At the 12th Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy, French artist Claire Fontaine will showcase her work ‘Unbuilding’, an exploration of the construction and the deconstruction of spaces. One of the highlights of her exhibition is ‘Counterpoison’,  a short film of an abandoned theatre in Glasgow, which has been ravaged by local kids and now provides shelter to wild animals. A neon light sign salvaged from the Glasgow theatre and a demolished shop called ‘Nursery World’ also form part of her works.
