The Museo del Novecento, on the occasion of Milano Art Week 2022, presents “ONE,” the performance by Swiss artist and choreographer Marie-Caroline Hominal, one of the leading figures on the Swiss contemporary scene and winner of the 2019 ‘Outstanding Female Dancer’ award at the Swiss Dance Awards.
The performance, structured in three pictures, questions the fall, the art market and authorship. Through a vocabulary of gestures and choreographic scores, Marie-Caroline Hominal evokes a surreal auction involving the audience, laying bare the commodification of performance and bodies. Commenting on the forms of cultural consumerism and neo-liberal economies in the art system, “ONE” publicly exposes the relationship and power relations established between the artist and those who present her work, in an amusing, captivating, subtly disenchanted self-portrait.
