LES LANCEURS D’ALERTE
CARTE BLANCHE FOR SYLVIE BLOCHER
MUSÉE D’ART MODERNE DU LUXEMBOURG
As part of her solo exhibition, S’inventer autrement, Mudam Luxembourg is giving carte blanche to the artist Sylvie Blocher to mark the middle of her exhibition period. The carte blanche entitled « Les lanceurs d’alerte », will be held on the 6th and the 7th of February 2015.
Within this framework, Tsuneko Taniuchi will intervene with a performance, entitled Micro-événement n°44 /Théâtre de la (re)présentation de soi, d’après « Fresh Acconci », on the 7th of February from 2.30pm until 3.30pm.
The carte blanche will end with a performance by French/Japanese artist Tsuneko Taniuchi, who refers to performance as a « micro-event to demonstrate the participatory anchor of this practice with the public in a space, a time and a given place that questions the boundaries between art and reality. » It will question her foreign-artist status and will test her physical resilience: psychological confrontation, personal confession and exploration of intimate spheres. At Mudam Tsuneko Taniuchi will reinvent herself after Fresh Acconci (1995), a video in which Mike Kelley and Paul McCarthy carry out remakes of the performances by Vito Acconci which they adapt to the aesthetic peculiar to the 1990s and Soft-porn.
