People who have saved this event:



Australian painter Tony Clark presents drafts for a hypothetical Villa Sino-Turco-Romana. Employing an ironical and critical exploration of exoticism, installing chinoseries alongside turqueries Clark establishes cross-cultural bridge building between Australia and Germany. He thereby aknowledges the cultural impact of immigrant groups on immigration societies. The Villa brings into perspective the affluence a culture achieves opening up to what might be perceived as “foreign,” only to ultimatley recognize it as its multifaceted own identity. Australian performance dancer Shelley Lasica takes the Villa as her stage for her dance performance, Represent, that makes the paintings and their subjects her partners in dialogue.
