Dancing with myself

€ 48.00

Dancing with Myself investigates the elemental importance of self-representation in art from the 1970s to the present day and the role of the artist as protagonist and subject of the work.

Through a wide variety of artistic practices and artists (from Claude Cahun to LaToya Ruby Frazier, from Gilbert & George to Cindy Sherman, and from Alighiero Boetti to Maurizio Cattelan) coming from different cultures and backgrounds, generations and experiences, it reflects on the contrast between different approaches: melancholy and vanity, ironic games played with identity and political autobiography, existential rumination and the body as sculpture, effigy or fragment, and its symbolical representation.
