Danser Chanter Aimer (Dance Sing Love)
An exhibition by Valentina Traïanova
12 December 2023 – 29 February 2024
“Dancer Chanter Aimer” brings together never before exhibited drawings, sound sculptures, a video performance as well as the performance “Lust”, written especially for this exhibition. They all derive from the same gesture and reveal a process – each work is in fact multiple in its forms, and sometimes in dialogue with other works of literary or artistic movements: Mary Wigman’s Hexentanz with “Danse de la sorcière”; Kurt Schwitters’ Ursonate with “Schtipta canta kak ta rooooo ooo u”; Barnett Newman’s Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue with “Who’s afraid of a signer”? Last but not least, Antony Trayanov’s world of animation and his film “Point of View” („Гледна точка“) are reflected in the “Flaque” series by Valentina Traïanova.
