The Perpetual Body
Curated by Chris Borkowski / [PAM]
The Perpetual Body is a collections works that focuses on the human body in form and movement. 120 yeas ago Edward Muybridge began to articulatetechnologically & culturally speaking, our collective fascination with the human form in motion. Although the tools and techniques have changed theimpetus and desire to photograph said subjects has spawned into a multitudeof works with varying motives and sensibilities. The perpetual body runs the gamut body art atheists offering varying degrees of intimacy oscillating between both viewer and subject.

Video Still Goldiechianri "object du désir"
GoldieChiari, Objet du Desir
Curated by Rody Douzoglou and Elaine Lévy
From the very beginning of their collaboration in 1997, Sara “goldie” Goldschmied and Eleonora Chiari have questioned us through irony and derision. Maybe it is the play on perception and the effect of identification embodied by their work, or maybe just the positive and claim-less message that touches us? Making fun of the institutional art system and of the idea of the artist itself, goldiechiari finally brandish the “100% no genius” expression as a motto. Through multi-field creation, action and performance are fed from fictional and ironic scenarii while other transitory installations are tinctured with the pure emotion of individual experience
