A LIVE EXHIBITION From March 16th to April 15th ACUD GALERIE
During five weekends, the gallery will host two site-specific performances: Rehearsal of the Futures: Is the World Your Friend? created by Isaac Chong Wai and Olympia by Rachel Monosov. Both piece delve into the so-called ideological movements in between the sport action or ideological postures in the collective memory in order to look for and propose possible futures. Aiming to break the idea of curating the static, but rather to curate the fleeting, Transcultural Transience is a serie of spontaneous movements and rehearsed choreographies developed through a dialogue between the performer, the observer, the artists and the curators.
The work of Isaac Chong Wai was featured at the Bauhaus Museum (Weimar), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin) and the Moscow Biennale for Young Art. chongwai.tumblr.com/biography
