The innovative Orlan artist in Rome
From October 25 to December 3, 2017, the exhibition "VideORLAN - Technobody" of the well-known French artist and performer ORLAN takes place at MACRO.
The exhibition retraces the entire artistic adventure of ORLAN, from the first photographic sculptures, to recorded performances on video, to the latest works that use increased reality and 3D.
It will also be experimented for the first time in Italy "Expériente Mise en jeu" (2015-2016), a spectacular video game with interactive installation.
A total dive into the capital by the French artist at the age of twenty years from the exhibition "ORLAN in Rome 1964-1996" by Studio Miscetti and Sala 1.
The show at MACRO is characterized by a surprising use of digital, the result of the artist's recent appearance to a virtual reality apparently opposed and symmetrical to the carnality of works that dotted the path of one of the most radical, innovative, brave European artists capable of to ride the spirit of the times with tireless pursuit.
For ORLAN, always attracted by the media and all the means that contemporaneity offers, in reality, digital is a different way of building images and ferrying the themes of ever (body, sexuality, stereotypes of beauty, cultural, political, religious impositions, and the vast symbology that goes from metamorphosis to hybrid) to more impalpable but not least powerful universes.
