The first solo exhibition of the French choreographer Jérôme Bel is curated by Antonia Alampi. The artist involves in his work non-professional dancers, children, elderly or people with disabilities.
The exhibition has a performative component and a filmic one, with live performances taking place every weekend and a newly commissioned piece taking place throughout the entire time of the exhibition titled “Danzare come se nessuno stesse guardando”.
The works on view have been realized expressly for the video-camera, a medium that Bel has always adopted to present his work, linking to the history of contemporary dance and its relationship to the moving image.
