Pirelli HangarBicocca reopens and presents “Digital Mourning” by Neïl Beloufa
From February 3rd Pirelli HangarBicocca is ready to reopen its doors allowing the public to visit the exhibited artworks in its entirety and in maximum safety, including the exhibition “Short-circuits” devoted to Chen Zhen (1955, Shanghai – 2000, Paris) and curated by Vicente Todolí, as well as the permanent installation The Seven Heavenly Palaces 2004 – 2015 by Anselm Kiefer.
From 17 February 2021, if the epidemiological circumstances will allow so, the new exhibition “Digital Mourning” by Neïl Beloufa will open until the 18 July 2021, from Wednesday to Friday from 10.30 AM to 8.30 PM.
“Digital Mourning”, curated by Roberta Tenconi, is the first major solo exhibition devoted to Neïl Beloufa (Paris, 1985) in an Italian institution. Neïl Beloufa is one of the leading voices of the past decade and a keen observer of our times, offering vivid representations of the world through films, videos, installations, and sculptures. Beloufa successfully conveys a reality that, in its subtlety, is often awkward to behold, focusing on highly topical issues such as power relationships, the technological control, the perils of data collection, as well as on a possible collapse in the management of a pandemic.
