Jan Fabre “Stigmata” at MAXXI

The partnership between MAXXI and Fondazione Romaeuropa continues to bear fruit. Following last year’s tribute to William Kentridge, another genius from the contemporary art scene will be the protagonist in a joint venture staged by the two institutions: from 16 October, an exhibition and two theatrical productions will bring the obsessions and visions of Jan Fabre to Rome.

MAXXI will be housing the first retrospective to present his work as an artist performer from 1976 to the present, while at the Teatro Eliseo, within the ambit of the Romaeuropa Festival 2013, Fabre will be staging two productions from the 1980s.

Like a river, like an avalanche, 92 transparent panels, glass work tables will invade the MAXXI spaces carrying over 800 documents, drawings, thinking models, films, art works and residual elements of the performances realised by Jan Fabre from 1976 to the present.

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
