Charlemagne Palestine

Opening on Friday 18.05.2018

A new project with Charlemagne Palestine. + A performance with Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson at the opening night.

NICC is pleased to present the work of New Yorker sound, performance, and visual installation artist Charlemagne Palestine (b. 1947, Brooklyn, lives and works in Brussels). His works take cues from dada, indigenous  cultures, and ritualistic and spiritual practices  more broadly. For this exhibition in the NICC vitrine, Palestine has constructed a window installation mise-en-scène using his signature stuffed animal teddy bear divinities, asserting  gestures and stances that embodies his highly theatrical sensibility. The artist has maintained a consistently provocative multidisciplinary practice since the late 1960s and is perhaps best known for his eccentric performances and sculptures that incorporate colorful clusters of stuffed animals and cloths of all colors and textures. Sometimes termed a minimalist sound composer who invokes repetition and duration, Palestine nevertheless sees himself more as a “maximalist.” Palestine has collaborated with an extensive roster of poets, visual artists, and choreographers including experimental filmmaker Tony Conrad and performer and choreographer Simone Forti. His work has been exhibited and performed at 356 South Mission Road in Los Angeles (2018), the Jewish Museum in New York (2017), the Museum of Modern Art (2014)  and documenta 8 (1987), among countless other institutions and exhibitions. For the NICC opening event, Palestine will take part in a collaborative performance withr enowned experimental sound artist Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson. A concurrent exhibition of Palestine’s work entitled AA SSCHMMETTRROOSSPPECCTIVVE is also on view at the Palais de Bozar.
