Inside the Marble Palace (Sound, Dance, Performance)
15 november 2017—11 december 2017

Film “Gold” (2000) by Ange Leccia and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster will be on display between November 15 and December 11 as part of the project “Inside the Marble Palace (Sound, Dance, Performance).”

Ange Leccia and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster are French artists renowned for their large-scale installations and video works. The film “Gold”, a hypnotic cartography of the American Wild West, was shot in various locations that we recognize from the movies: California, Death Valley, Las Vegas—where nothing seems to happen except the editing.

On November 30, at 6 p. m., French curator Audrey Illouz will give a talk entitled “Scripts and scores.”

“Inside the Marble Palace (Sound, Dance, Performance)” is a joint project of the Russian Museum and Centre National des Arts Plastiques, Paris, France.

“Inside the Marble Palace” is a series of nine exhibitions exploring performativity in which dance and sound play a significant part. Ever since the time of its emergence, video art was closely connected with performance. The possibility to record and show at the same time, the use of time as one of the main elements — all of this provides common ground between performance and video art. The artists visualize sound and vocalize space; saturate their works with dense sound or deafening silence; refer to the performance tradition and avant-garde choreography; reinterpret popular tunes and film stills that serve as cultural archaeology and a breeding ground for their art.

The exhibitions continue the series of video screenings at the Museum Ludwig at the Russian Museum.
