MARCOS LUTYENS

IN A HALL OF WONDERS 

Performance di ipnosi collettiva, Cranbrook Art Museum, Michigan
14 dicembre, 2014

Marcos Lutyens è stato invitato dal Cranbrook Art Museum a realizzare una performance intitolata "In a hall of wonders", pensata appositamente per la mostra "The Cranbrook Hall of Wonders: Artworks, Objects, and Natural Curiosities" che si ispira alla "Wunderkammer", ossia una raccolta cinquecentesca in cui arte, oggetti, stranezze naturali e scoperte antropologiche coesistono insieme come un microcosmo di conoscenza. Questa interpretazione contemporanea è un installazione realizzata con la collezione Cranbrook: opere d’arte, oggetti di design e oggetti artigianali dei secoli XX e XXI, esposte accanto a beni culturali provenienti dal campus storico di Cranbrook. Per tutta la durata della manifestazione il museo ha invitato artisti e studiosi che realizzeranno performance apposite o “nuove esposizioni nell’esposizione” in  risposta all’installazione. Appunto per questo è stato invitato Marcos Lutyens.
