Loan of Jorge Macchi's 'Vidas paralelas' to Berlin

Posted: 3 November 2015 by Dr Sarah Demelo

We've loaned Jorge Macchi's Vidas paralelas to the exhibition Mirror Images in Art and Medicine at the Berlin Museum of Medical History at the Charité. Due to the fragility of the artwork, our Collections Assistant, Dr Sarah Demelo, travelled to Berlin to install the artwork in the exhibition.  

The exhibiton is curated by Alessandra Pace, who previously borrowed Macchi's work for her exhibition The Glass Delusion (2011) at the National Glass Centre in Sunderland, UK. Pace writes that the exhibition  'showcases artworks, scientific experiments and curiosities related to mirrors, reflecting surfaces, photography and moving images, by means of which artists and neuroscientists alike—each with the instruments of their own discipline — investigate and challenge our sense of location in space and the outer limits of our body.'  Other artists in the exhibition include Carla Guagliardi and Cildo Meireles, who are also in the ESCALA Collection, and Vito Acconci, William Anastasi, Christian Andersson, John Baldessari, Attila Csörgõ, Marta dell’Angelo, Annika Eriksson, Thomas Florschuetz, Adib Fricke, Hreinn Friðfinnsson, Dan Graham, Sabina Grasso, Dalibor Martinis, Bjørn Melhus, Richard Rigg, Otavio Schipper/Sergio Krakowski, Vedova Mazzei.

The exhibition opens 13 November 2015 and runs until 3 April 2016. You can find out more about the exhibition on their website here which includes a downloadable leaflet.
