Les Grands Transparents — In Practice, Vol. II



Les Grands Transparents
In Practice, Vol. II

Past: January 18 → 26, 2014

Chalet Society presents Les Grands Transparents. In Practice, Vol. II in a special collaboration with Family Business.

Family Business, a structure initiated by Maurizio Cattelan & Massimiliano Gioni, with guest (ghost) curator Nadja Argyropoulou, is back at the Chalet Society with the Volume Two of its program. On this special occasion, visiting representatives of ESTAR (SER), Sal Randolph and D. Graham Burnett, will reanimate the eccentric stagecraft of an American original: Inyard Kip Ketchem, a vaudeville philosopher and travelling attention artist, who rose to considerable celebrity, in the years before World War I, as “America’s Greatest Carnival Meditator”. Was he associated with the Order of the Third Bird (or related communities of ritually-oriented devotees of practical aesthesis)? There are reasons to believe he was.

  • The invisible man — or Out of this world Event January 18 → 26, 2014

    It is a unique experience — a device for experimenting with disappearance, proposed to the public by the designers of Diplomates. It is a special box built after the texts and drafts of famous magician Robert Harbin, and “augmented” by new powers. This “service” allows one to experience the passage to the beyond and focus on the space-time.

  • Fusion Exhibition January 18 → 26, 2014

    Fusion, screening of the new video by Alain della Negra and Kaori Kinoshita, where possessed humans spread their wings and clows, fusionning with their totem animal in a space full of possibilities offered by the green backdrop.
