Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi
Intorno a Nauman #4. Errance sérielle

The Teatrino presents a cycle of screenings entitled “Intorno a Nauman”, curated by cinema critic and independent curator Dominique Païni and inspired by the exhibition ‘Bruce Nauman: Contrapposto Studies’ open at Punta della Dogana until 27 November 2022.

The selection includes films that somehow echo the act of walking and the classical pose Contrapposto, two elements at the heart of Bruce Nauman’s works on view. As well as establishing a dialogue with the performances of Bruce Nauman, the cycle retraces the story of Contrapposto, of moving bodies, at the centre of cinematography since its beginning.

'Errance sérielle', the fourth appointment of the cycle, presents Vincent Gallo's film Brown Bunny, which reveals a desire to break the conventions of composition and rhythm and follows the protagonists on their journey through the Californian landscapes. The film is preceded by the screening of a work by Bruce Nauman in which the artist performs:

  • Dance or Exercise on the Perimeter of a Square (1967-1968, 8') by Bruce Nauman
  • The Brown Bunny (2003, 89') by Vincent Gallo - The film contains sexually explicit images, it is recommended to be viewed by an adult audience.
