Night Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening of Claire Tabouret: I am spacious, singing flesh presented as a Collateral Event of the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. The show will be on view at Palazzo Cavanis from April 23rd - November 27th during the Biennale Arte 2022. The exhibition is presented by FABA (Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte) in collaboration with Almine Rech.
Claire Tabouret: I am spacious, singing flesh presents a new critical reading of key dimensions of the Los Angeles-based French artist’s work in a remarkable survey exhibition curated by Kathryn Weir that explores multiple transformations: of self, other, collective identities, struggle, release, refuge. A powerful and unexpected dialogue is created with a number of vernacular devotional objects drawn from archaeological and liturgical collections in Italy, invoking an ambivalent threshold in Tabouret’s practice, a portal into multiple temporalities and subjectivities through which to consider alternative relationships amongst human beings, and between human beings and their environment, in the face of ecological and social crises and in communication with the supernatural.
