The Pavilion Esprit Nouveau - the building created by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret for the Paris Exposition International des Arts Décoratifs in 1925, faithfully replicated in Bologna in 1977 and recently restored by Regione Emilia-Romagna (Emilia-Romagna Region) and Comune di Bologna (Municipality of Bologna) – houses the exhibition Katarina Zdjelar. Ungrammatical from February 1 to March 29. The Serbian video-artist is the protagonist of a project that provides an overview of her works in the last few years. Her videos The Perfect Sound (14’30”, 2009), My Lifetime (Malaika) (5’37”, 2012), Shoum(7’ 00'', 2009), Into the interior (Last day of the permanent exhibition)(19'22'', 2014), Rise Again (11’23”, 2011), AAA (Mein Herz) (4'30", 2016), are screened in the different spaces of the Pavillon, thus creating a dialogue with the surrounding architecture.
Katarina Zdjelar’s research explores the limits and potentialities of the language, showing how universal, as well as ambiguous and bewildering it can be. By working with a medium such as the video, the artist can analyse the language theme following different aspects, from both a visual and audio level.
The exhibition is curated by Lorenzo Balbi and is promoted by Istituzione Bologna Musei | MAMbo - Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna, in collaboration with SpazioA.
