Tadeusz Kantor: Où sont les neiges d’antan
9 October 2019 – 5 January 2020
With the exhibition, «Tadeusz Kantor : Où sont les neiges d'antan», Museum Tinguely presents one of Poland’s most important theatre and visual artists of the 20th century with one of his expansive works for the stage. Tadeusz Kantor’s (1915-1990) independent underground theatre, devoted to the reality of everyday life and often critically concerned with Poland's suppressed history, is still influential for a young generation of theatre artists today. At Museum Tinguely, from 9. to 20. October, the exhibition Kantor’s show of objects, drawings, film- and photo documentation is accompanied by the Virtual Reality-simulation Cricoterie (2019), by Auriea Harvey & Michaël Samyn. Visitors are invited to be the hands directing a virtual stage filled with a cast of uncanny characters and props, inspired by Kantor’s Theatre of Death and simultaneously, the audience watches as things get out of hand.
