La Visita (Working Title) 2021 / Collaboration

The site-specific project La Visita (working title) will bring Peeping Tom’s theatricality, disruption and surrealism into the new world of art galleries. Through Peeping Tom’s own characters, the artworks and the museum’s characters, the audience will be taken into a parallel mental world, portraying what usually remains hidden.

For a long time, museums and art galleries have found their way into the work of Peeping Tom. In Moeder, the performance was set in a space that at once was maternity ward, funeral home, sound booth and art gallery – as if life was exposed for everyone to see.

For the Collezione Maramotti, Gabriela Carrizo will move in the opposite direction, bringing Peeping Tom’s theatricality into the actual art collection. The museum, a symbol of stability in time, is confronted here with the temporary and the volatile. Gabriela Carrizo will also work on the viewing, how we look at art and which effect art works can have on us. The spectator is challenged and confronted with himself, asking what is real, what is created, what is art and what is present in his own mind.

La Visita (working title) is currently shortlisted for the FEDORA Prize for Ballet 2021. Vote now and support our youngest project!
