Loggia of San Bartolomeo

Corso Vittorio Emanuele 25, Palermo

April 29, 2017 – May 19, 2017

PERSONA curated by LEMOSCHE, is a cultural and exhibition project with multiple contemporary languages ​​that includes visual arts, performance, music and video art and which explores, albeit in a great variety of aesthetic directions, the vicissitudes of the painful body and identity . 

Involved 5 artists, Italian and French: Philippe Berson, Gaetano Costa, Yann Marussich, Nino Russo and Olivier de Sagazan, who will give life to four performances:

– Philippe Berson, Balançoire performance, with the participation of the musician Gaetano Dragotta;

– Gaetano Costa, performance Colatura #9, with the participation of Marika Pugliatti and the composer Manfredi Clemente;

– Yann Marussich, Blue Remix performance, with the participation of the musician Gaetano Dragotta;

– Olivier de Sagazan, performance Lenfermoi, with the participation of the musician Christophe Havard.

Different artists and disciplines but united by the awareness that a look at socio-cultural realities translates the meeting of sensibilities between local and international artistic realities, in the common vision of the contemporary. The project is carried out with the support of the Municipality of Palermo, with the contribution of Pro Helvetia and the City of Genève, the Metropolitan City and the Sant’Elia Foundation.

Given the particular attention paid to the French cultural scene with which a meeting of sensibilities attentive to the contemporary myths of European decadence and the destiny of Franco-Italian culture was successfully achieved, the project has the support of the Institut Français of Palermo.

Furthermore, precisely on the occasion of this important cultural proposal, due to its composite nature and the participation of international artists, the monumental complex of the Loggiato San Bartolomeo will be reopened to host the performances, a space of significantly great urban impact, suspended between the city and the sea
