Inside the Marble Palace (Sound, Dance, Performance)

Pipilotti Rist. You called me Jacky. 1990.
14 march—16 april 2018

Films “I am not the girl who misses much” (1986), “You called me Jacky” (1990), and “I am a victim of this song” (1995) by Pipilotti Rist will be on display between March 14 and April 16 as part of the project “Inside the Marble Palace (Sound, Dance, Performance).”

Pipilotti Rist is a well-known Swiss video artist who creates hypnotic music-centered pieces. The three works presented in the Marble Palace combine the aesthetics of music videos and the traditions of performance. The artist acts as a superstar performing cover-versions of popular songs. “I am not the girl who misses much” refers to the first line of John Lennon’s song “Happiness Is a Warm Gun.” “You called me Jacky” is an interpretation of the homonymic song by Kevin Coyne. “I am a victim of this song” is based on Chris Isaac’s hit “Wicked Game.”

 “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.
