IN THE HIDDEN
30 September – 26 November 2017
Millesgården presents the exhibition In The Hidden by choreographer Cristina Caprioli.
Like a stain of crude oil, the black pleated cloth spreads out over the floor. A malleable surface which one can hide behind, be silenced by or in which one can make visible one’s place. The concept of the fold has a central place in the exhibition In the hidden and the reference to the clad nudity of the historical sculpture is explicit. Slide shows, films, soap, rags, “skin” and a publication together probe choreography’s covering of shapes, which speak most clearly when they are not un-covered.
A number of key issues relating to power are addressed, while the non-uncovering covering is put forth as a selectable strategy. The intention is to allow the artistic experience to hold a discourse on the hidden, in social, cultural and political terms.
In the Hidden forms part of the comprehensive artistic project cloth, designed by the independent organisation ccap.
The exhibition will be presented in the Artist Home at Millesgården.
