ROMINA SHAMA

VNH GALLERY PERFORMANCE

«L’ospite FR2016 - FR2017»

Performance within Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Installation at VnH Gallery, December 2016.

Michelangelo Pistoletto’s installation «Raggi di persone» shows a square of hanging images of people photographing nothing (together) from a performance in 1975. Rom invited writer Pauline Klein to perform photographing eachother inside the installation to open a conversation with the past. The performance was filmed and photographed in the space delimited by the shadow of his picture.

This piece echos Rom's encounter with artist Giulio Paolini in this very space (which was then called Yvon Lambert) in 2006. 

The title coordinates stand for the time and places where the piece was altered to take various forms (performance, video, installation, photography)
