WERNER HIRSCH PERFORMS FOR BOUDRY/LORENZ, THE VENNICE BIENNALE, Venice

Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz will represent Switzerland at the 2019 Venice Biennale. Werner Hirsch will perform in the Swiss Pavillon from 6 May - 10 May 2019 and on screen from 11 May - 24 Nov 2019, together with the performers Julie Cunningham, Latifa Laâbissi, Marbles Jumbo Radio and Nach.

For the Biennale Arte 2019, the artists will develop a large film installation involving performers Julie Cunningham, Werner Hirsch, Latifa Laâbissi, Marbles Jumbo Radio and Nach who will experiment with backward movements. Invited to enter a dense choreography generated by body movements, film loops and animated objects, visitors will participate in strange encounters, in an environment reminiscent of a nightclub. Their physical and sensory experience will be complemented by moments of reflection on the Pavilion’s theme in the form of a free journal containing statements written by a dozen authors from the fields of philosophy, art, political activism, post-colonial and queer theories.
