The Making Of:
Embodying, a collaboration between poet Cristiana de Marchi and the late artist Hassan Sharif
Date and time TBC
A talk with Cristiana de Marchi about her collaboration with the late icon Hassan Sharif on their book Embodying and how the experience of working with Sharif influenced her practice. De Marchi contributed 29 poems to the book which documents Sharif’s early performances and explores the absurdity of everyday movements and actions when taken out of context in a reflection of the legacy of his artistic genius. During the talk, de Marchi will look back at an influential time in her life in which she and a select group of artists—with whom she would later collaborate—would gather around Sharif and exchange ideas about philosophy, poetry and art theory.
