While Bodies Get Mirrored, Zurich
A group show informed by the medium of dance is now open at Zurich’s Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst.
’While Bodies Get Mirrored’ features the work of 14 contemporary artists, all of whom use the ’tensions between movement and space’ as the springboard for their practices.
The show focuses on the way in which modern and postmodern dance has influenced contemporary art and vice versa.
Leaving no medium untouched, ’While Bodies get Mirrored’ features sculpture - including dancer and choreographer William Forsythe’s ’The Defenders Part II’, a red carpet, haphazardly implanted with over 70 shards of mirror - alongside film, photography, painting and installation.
Highlights include Anetta Mona Chişa and Lucia Tkáčová’s ’Manifesto of a Futurist Woman (Let’s Conclude)’ - a film work featuring a parading bunch of bright red majorettes - and a series of installations by Mexican artist Martin Soto Climent, including swooping aluminum forms, video projections and a sculptural collection of blue beer cans.
The Migros Museum is hosting a series of live performances and screenings for the duration of the show, so see the Migros website for more details.
