Product Description

This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition "A translation from on language to another, Part 2" (22 March - 22 May 2019), curated by Luk Lambrecht and Lieze Eneman, at Cultural Centre Strombeek, Grimbergen, Belgium.

Collective Exhibition for a Single Body is a proposal by documenta 14 curator Pierre Bal-Blanc in collaboration with the Greek choreographer Kostas Tsioukas and the dancers and performers Myrto Kontoni and Tassos Koukoutas. A body is dissected into distinct parts, as in an anatomical study. Each part, limb, muscle, or organ becomes the medium of an action overseen by the curator and the choreographer and created by a selection of documenta 14 participating artists who work in a variety of disciplines. The proposed gestures are translated into scores and performed among museum visitors by three dancers in an aleatory fashion, continuously repeated.
