Francis Bacon Project 2019
Using Francis Bacons positions as lynchpin, the performance Francis Bacon Project, attempts to transport us into the painters workshop and to approach, through theatrical visual arts, the artistic and philosophical work of this great artist.
With the collaboration of artists from different disciplines, the special atmosphere of the workshop is created, and the viewer is invited to become a fellow traveller in the pursuit of aesthetic inquiry and a witness to the creative process. Its predominant element being construction and deconstruction, an element that characterizes Bacons work, the performance walks the tightrope between iconography and text, combining the flow and the rhythm of a narrative aesthetics in which image, speech and music work together and are equated through the same denominator, coexisting with the the artists philosophical approach to Art and life.
