“HAVE YOU EVER SPENT MORE THAN 15 MINUTES IN FRONT OF AN ARTWORK ...
... AND TRIED TO DANCE IT?”
For many people to look at an artwork is a very exciting experience.
MIMESIS MUSEO DANZA arises from a simple question: how it’s possible to “disclose” that particular Emotion? The answer arrives from the Neuroaesthetic’s Science, that explains in which way our brain is stimulated by the object we look at.
The artist starting from this concept, conducts a research on the union among observation, relationship and emotion, questioning herself about the mechanisms that underlie perceptual vision of a work of art and how they affect the condition of the body placed in front of it.
With MIMESIS MUSEO DANZA you can explore the richness of works of art with your body, in a special place dedicated to every person, in museums and exhibition spaces.
The goal will be to look the work of art with all of one's body, creating a dance relationship between oneself and the picture in front of it.
