Inside the Marble Palace (Sound, Dance, Performance)
17 january—12 february 2018
Film “Blanche Neige Lucie” (1997) by Pierre Huyghe will be on display between January 17 and February 12 as part of the project “Inside the Marble Palace (Sound, Dance, Performance).”

Pierre Huyghe is a famous French artist renowned for his video works and installations, including a large-scale project for the Skulptur Projekte 2017  in Munich.
 
In “Blanche Neige Lucie,” Huyghe reconstructs Lucie Dolène’s fight for the right to her voice. Actress and singer Dolène dubbed the voice of Snow White for the French version of Disney’s film. Drawing on the history of cinema, the artist investigates relationships between fiction and reality. Huyghe brings to light interconnections and differences between the truth of a character and the truth of a person behind it.

“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
