In scena i momenti salienti della vita di Camille Claudel

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 6 Mag 2019

Napoli Martedì 7 e mercoledì 8 maggio 2019 Sala Assoli Vico Lungo Teatro Nuovo, 110 inizio delle rappresentazioni ore 20.30. In scena i momenti salienti della vita di Camille Claudel, che, attraverso le sue opere, è riuscita a scolpire l’animo umano, cogliendone bellezza e crudezza. I differenti linguaggi dell’arte attraverso opere singolari a teatro, per offrire uno sguardo “altro” su pittura, fotografia, danza e psicologia. E’ l’essenza di Visionarie, rassegna tutta al femminile di Casa del Contemporaneo che ospiterà, martedì 7 maggio 2019 alle ore 20.30 (in replica mercoledì 8), negli spazi della Sala Assoli, lo spettacolo Ca/1000 drammaturgia di Enrico Manzo, omaggio a Camille Claudel per la regia di Luisa Corcione.Presentato da Estudio Associazione Artistica Culturale, l’allestimento si avvale della presenza, in scena, di Noemi Francesca, con le voci di Lino Musella e Giacinto Palmarini, il sound design e le musiche di Marco Vidino, le musiche di Peppe Voltarelli, le opere scenografiche di Luisa Corcione, Rosaria Corcione.
Ca/1000 porta in scena la storia di un’anima attraverso i momenti salienti della vita di Camille Claudel, artista di fine ‘800, dall’arrivo in manicomio a Monfavet alla sua “uscita”, vittoriosamente perdente. Nelle sue opere, l’artista francese è riuscita a scolpire l’animo umano, cogliendone la bellezza ma anche la crudezza, e tutti quegli aspetti solitamente taciuti.Il coraggio e la forza la resero profonda e autentica, ma fu anche logorata per aver ceduto, in seguito, alle contingenze economiche insuperabili per una donna sola in quell’epoca. Ca/1000 evidenzia quanto le vicende dell’esistenza personale e gli esiti della sua opera siano, inestricabilmente, fusi nel comune fallimento.
“Camille Claudel – sottolinea la regista Luisa Corcione – ebbe la dolorosa capacità di dare forma alle proprie visioni interiori, strappare all’ignoto la nostra parte più recondita, così come narra Rilke nelle Elegie duinesi. Erano brandelli di verità che le permettevano di vedere più nitidamente ciò che altri potevano solo superficialmente intuire, perché le sue opere sono sofferenza pagata”.Gli elementi che accompagnano in scena il vivido personaggio di Camille Claudel sono le voci, sia presenza assordante sia tenero ricordo, i dipinti, compagni di viaggio per trent’anni della sua esistenza (le “internate” del manicomio), e le sculture.Molte delle sculture presenti in scena rappresentano il suo diario, il grido disperato di un’anima che passa dalla felicità di un tormentato rapporto d’amore, quello che la legò per alcuni anni a Rodin, fino al rancore e alla rêverie, attraversando l’esaltazione amorosa, l’illusione della felicità e le promesse di fedeltà, l’abbandono, il risentimento, la solitudine estrema, l’amara consapevolezza di un’inguaribile ferita.In scena saranno presenti le opere pittoriche e scultorie dell’artista Rosaria Corcione, mentre nel foyer della Sala Assoli, la regista Luisa Corcione esporrà gli appunti visivi su tela, dai quali ha preso vita l’allestimento teatrale.

Three Leading European Art Dealers to Curate Pop-Up Exhibition at Hong Kong Convention Centre

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 28 marzo 2018

Hong Kong – As part of Christie’s ongoing commitment to facilitating the public exhibition and sale of works of art from a broad variety of categories to global audiences, a special exhibition will be staged from 25 to 29 May by three leading European dealers at the Hong Kong Convention Centre, during Christie’s spring season of activities.
Bowman Sculpture specialises in works by leading artists, ranging from the 19th century through to the present day, and is the foremost gallery in the world for sculpture by Auguste Rodin (French, 1840-1917).
The exhibition will also present Le frère et la soeur (Brother and Sister) (conceived in 1890), a rare collaboration between Rodin and the famous female sculptor Camille Claudel, who was Rodin’s lover and studio assistant. Madly in love but unable to abandon his partner of many years Rose Beuret, the relationship between Rodin and Claudel ended in 1890, the same year that Le frère et la soeur was conceived. While the sculpture is signed by Rodin and acknowledged as being a work he created, the original figure for the young woman was in fact modelled on Claudel’s La Jeune Fille à la Gerbe (Young Girl with a Sheaf). Using Claudel’s original form, Rodin made slight alterations to the composition including the addition of the small child. Le frère et la soeur (Brother and Sister) is the only known work in which Rodin directly collaborated with Claudel and was greatly received by collector’s during Rodin’s lifetime, perhaps because of its tender nature which differentiated it from the sombre figures that characterised The Gates of Hell. As a result, numerous museum collections around the world currently house versions of this model; including the Musée Rodin (Paris), the Fitzwilliam Museum (Cambridge), Walker Art Gallery (Liverpool), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NYC) and the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston).
The Didier Claes gallery will display a selection of important masks, highlighted by a Kota mask from Gabon, along with a Chokwe mask from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and an Ibibio mask from Nigeria. The Kota masks are a rare and still unknown aspect of Kota art, discovered in the 20th century in North Kota, eastern Gabon. This mask (presumed period: late 19th to early 20th century), is known as an Emboli or Empoli and is a helmet mask of impressive height, carved out of wood. The mask reflects dreamlike imagery, merging animal and anthropomorphic motifs. The face is somewhat reminiscent of reliquaries with bulging eyes, a flat triangular nose and a rectangular mouth.
The exhibition will also feature a Pwo female mask (presumed period: late 19th to early 20th century), an outstanding example of a traditional Chokwe mask. Carved in wood, the mask features half-closed almond eyes with arched brows and patterns of scarification. The mask honours the founding female ancestors from who the Chokwe trace their descent and are often worn during ceremonies to bring fertility and prosperity to a community.The Ibibio mask (presumed period: late 19th to early 20th century) originates from southwest Nigeria. The mask has an emaciated appearance and the design is indicative of death or to the diseases common to the area. These masks are worn during annual ceremonies and relay the connection between the world of the living and that of their ancestors, who are responsible for the welfare of the tribe.
Xavier Eeckhout is an expert in the field of animal sculpture, offering an eclectic and varied array of works. Among the highlights on display during the exhibition, Galerie Xavier Eeckhout will present Rembrandt Bugatti’s (Italian, 1884-1916) Asian elephant walking (circa 1909-1910). Bugatti sought to capture the strength, movement and character traits of these majestic mammals, dedicating a series to sculpting elephants from 1907 to 1910. Also on view from Galerie Xavier Eeckhout will be works by Edouard Marcel Sandoz (Swiss, 1881–1971) including Seated fennec (circa 1920-1930), alongside Two young dogs (1931) by his pupil Enrico-Manfredo Di Palma-Falco (Italian, 1886-1988). Both artists completed their training at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris under the tutelage of sculptor Antonin Mercié. Marcel Sandoz’s Seated fennec, portrays his understanding of classical and traditional techniques, knowledge of materials and profound understanding of his subject-matter. Focusing on the study of both wild and domestic animals, Marcel Sandoz was a prominent member of the Societé des Artistes Animaliers, founded in 1912, and went on to establish the French Society of Animalists in 1933.
