Les Yeux sans visage - Luc Tuymans, uno sguardo sul cinema
Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi
On the occasion of the first monographic show dedicated to Luc Tuymans in Italy, “La Pelle” at Palazzo Grassi, the Teatrino presents a film review curated by the Belgian artist.
The second appointment presents the horror film Les Yeux sans visage by Georges Franju. The film is set in a private clinic near Paris, which is managed by Dr Génessier, a specialist in skin transplants that hides a terrible secret: he does everything to reconstruct his daughter Christiane’s face, disfigured after an accident. With the help of his assistant Louise, the doctor attracts innocent young women to the clinic, who become victims of his surgical procedures.
