Vanessa Beecroft VB64

February 21, 2012

Beecroft’s performances are showing a interesting relation between body, sculpture and (non)movement.


“Vanessa Beecroft works in the space between painting, sculpture, performance, and real life. In VB64, she introduces a new element into the work, gesso sculptures cast from live models, resting on coffin-like bases. The twenty live models in the performance will be in white body make up and at the beginning of the performance will be indistinguishable from the sculptural casts. VB64 pushes Beecroft’s deliberate confusion between sculpture, performance and real life into a new realm, the tension between life and death.
