Sicilian Pavilion (2007)
Duration: 12'19" min.

In 2007 Mir, along with curator Paolo Falcone, art collector Marion Franchetti, and artists Luca De Gennaro and Salvo Prestifilippo, embarked on an 800-kilometer journey from Palermo to Venice in a 1977 Silver Shadow Rolls Royce, which they dubbed the Sicilian Pavilion in order to crash the party and to promote Sicilian culture and art at the 52nd Venice Biennale.
