press release

The exhibition is realized in cooperation with the Musée national d'art moderne - Centre Georges Pompidou of Paris.

For the first time in Italy it's possible to admire a selection of video works of the two authors that are related to one another by the theme of cinematographic image and brought together in a program designed expressly for the occasion.

4 works presented: Black and White (2008), I Knew Edwards only Slightly (2009), Fiction Double (2008) and Speak when I have Nothing to Say (2009).

Images and sequences from masterpieces by Alfred Hitchcock, Michelangelo Antonioni, Ingmar Bergman and Jean-Luc Godard are extrapolated and modified, with slight technical solutions, resulting in revealing a hidden aspect. As in all their work, what may first appear familiar is revealed under a new and unexpected light.

In addition to the show, on Thursday, October 21 the artists will meet the public during a conversation with Philippe-Alain Michaud, Film Curator at the Centre Pompidou to illustrate, through the works on display, the main themes of their work. The conversation will be moderated by Giacinto Di Pietrantonio, Director of GAMeC.
