Swinging Swimmers at the Science Museum
Dr Jacek Scarso, Senior Lecturer in for the Theatre and Performance Practice BA, was recently invited by the Science Museum in London to present his live and video works as part of Lates, the Museum’s monthly after-hours events. The Science Museum presented a programme centred on the themes love and sexuality to more than 4,000 visitors.
Jacek’s video installations, Santino and L’Entraineur, exploring depictions of masculinity and recently exhibited at Nord Art in Germany and Romberg Arte Contemporanea in Rome, were projected in large scale on the museum walls.
Specially created for this collaboration, Jacek’s new piece Swinging Swimmers delighted the audience in the main gallery spaces. Four barbershop vocalists, dressed in swimwear and holding red roses, jogged around the venue, serenading the public with live harmonies – a playful take on seduction and sports imagery.
Spanning performance, video, photography and installation, Jacek’s projects have been presented worldwide with exciting international collaborations to be revealed soon.
