Pierre Bal-Blanc: Collective Exhibition for a Single Body
Curator Pierre Bal-Blanc introduces « Collective Exhibition for a Single Body – The documenta 14 score, Athens 2017 ».
Evoking earlier projects such as « la Monnaie Vivante », he goes beyond the boundaries between performance art and dance to discuss the issue of movement, its transmission through scores, and how to deal with antique sculpture masterpieces and a bi-located exhibition.
Scores by Pierre Bal-Blanc, Marie Cool Fabio Balducci, Yael Davids, Maria Eichhorn, Anna Halprin, Maria Hassabi, David Lamelas, Prinz Gholam, Ashley Hans Scheirl, Kostas Tsioukas, Annie Vigier & Franck Apertet (les gens d’Uterpan), Lois Weinberger, and Artur Zmijewski (2017).
