14 Rooms - ArtBasel 2014



Below English 

Fra pochi giorni prende avvio ArtBasel che, oltre alle tradizionali proposte, si arricchisce di una nuovo progetto. Si tratta di “14 Rooms” un’iniziativa dedicata alle performance, che come dice il titolo prenderà forma in 14 ambienti dedicati a speciali eventi performativi realizzati in un’edizione unica nei giorni della fiera. Segnalo anche che quest’anno la sezione Unlimited occupera tutto lo stand 1, diventanto veramente illimitato. 

Curatori dell’evento Klaus Biesenbach e Hans Ulrich Obrist, che come al solito hanno invitato i soliti nomi : Marina Abramovic, Allora e Calzadilla, Ed Atkins, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Damien Hirst, Joan Jonas, Laura Lima, Bruce Nauman, Otobong Nkanga, Roman Ondák, Yoko Ono, Tino Sehgal, Santiago Sierra, e Xu Zhen. Vengono anche presentate due opere di Jordan Wolfson e John Baldessari nell'ambiente architettonico concepito da Herzog & de Meuron

For '14 Rooms' curators Klaus Biesenbach and Hans Ulrich Obrist invited international artists to each activate a room, exploring the relationship between space, time and physicality with an artwork whose 'material' is the human being. Giving visitors an insight into a more performative and interactive practice, visitors will encounter a new situation within each of the 14 rooms, engaging in a diverse series of immersive and intimate experiences. '14 Rooms' will feature works by artists including Marina Abramovi?, Allora and Calzadilla, Ed Atkins, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Damien Hirst, Joan Jonas, Laura Lima, Bruce Nauman, Otobong Nkanga, Roman Ondák, Yoko Ono, Tino Sehgal, Santiago Sierra, and Xu Zhen. 

Additionally, two more works by Jordan Wolfson and John Baldessari are featured around the spectacular architectural environment conceived by Herzog & de Meuron – one acting as an epilogue, the other as archival documentation. Both challenge the very notions of live art and the human experience as set out for '14 Rooms'.
