Theatre Arts senior lecturer exhibits in Venice
Senior Lecturer Dr Jacek Ludwig Scarso recently opened his new exhibition Precarious Balance / Equilibrio Precario at ArteSpazioTempo in Venice, to take place during the 57th Biennale di Venezia.
The exhibition, curated by Barbara Vincenzi and in collaboration with internationally acclaimed artist Marta Czok, spans installations, sculptures, video and paintings. After an initial collaboration at MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, the two artists return to work together in a project that reflects their conceptual links, in their respective portrayals of existential instability. Both artists rely on intensely choreographed scenarios that confront the viewer with different techniques and reading angles: contrasting in style, yet linked in their sensitivity regarding the elusive nature of human existence. The exhibition, which has already featured in magazines such as Exibart and ArteIn continues until November the 5th.
In London, Jacek collaborates with Anise Gallery, which hosted his exhibition Controlled Realities, alongside Rachel Hara and Charles Harrop-Griffiths. The topic of theatricality in contemporary art, which is the starting point for his work, was also at the centre of his recent talks at Tate Exchange, Utrecht University (ACLA Convention) and Lancaster Institute of Contemporary Art, Lancaster University.
