In the setting of the exhibition PPP and Dora Bassi: eredità ai contemporanei, a preview of Zosia Zoltkowski’s new performance at Casa Maccari on Thursday, March 30.
Zosia is a Polish-Australian interdisciplinary artist who researches and creates through the mediums of painting, performance, installation, sculpture and video. Her site-specific performances create a synergistic relationship between viewer, performer and space. Relying on her intuition, Zosia explores new ways to tune in and reconnect with her surroundings.
Identifying physical resistance as a constituent element of the history of the area, and tracing its presence in the museum’s archaeological pieces and sculptural artifacts, Zosia Zoltkowski will perform a durational performance in which she will use her particular method of body mapping: Exposed as an ancient artifact, and in contact with the continuously dynamic museum surfaces, evoking the statuesque and metallic elements of Dora Bassi’s works, the artist will initiate a process of “embodiment” that suggests to the viewer a primordial contact, physical and at the same time spiritual, with the representative elements of the history of the place.
Participation in the performance is free, places are limited, reservations at: email@example.com
Please note that the durational performance involves full nudity and will last approximately one hour.
This will be followed by light refreshments, and, for those who would like, a short inaugural guided tour of the exhibition “PPP & Dora Bassi: eredità ai contemporanei”.
