SAVVY Contemporary presents ‘RENDEZ-VOUS : SORTIE DE MON CORPS’, a project in collaboration with Espace Khiasma.
How do we see fables of the West through our contemporary eyes? How do we feel them through our contemporary bodies? In Rendez-vous : sortie de mon corps, the body becomes a territory spoken through by a chorus of voices: a place where struggles of the past, forgotten narratives and events can reemerge, and where a blending between biography and allegory, or the personal and the historical, can be witnessed, if not enacted. This exhibition posits the idea of a body outside itself, escaped from its own life story. A body no longer the site of identity, but a terrain equally inhabited by intimacy, familiarity, strangeness and the unknown.
Artists: Mathieu K. Abonnenc, Hicham Benohoud, Latifa Laâbissi, Karen Mirza & Brad Butler, Marta Popivoda & Ana Vujanovic, Gwenola Wagon & Stephane Degoutin
