Dove andare #2 - Sabato 23 Pistoletto alla Tate!

Michelangelo Pistoletto


One of the key protagonists of arte povera, Michelangelo Pistoletto will recreate his seminal action Walking Sculpture in London, first performed in 1966 on the streets of Turin. The original sculpture Ball of Newpapers, a two metre globe made of newspapers, which embodied the constantly shifting, newsworthy events of life over a two-year period, was taken for 'a walk' through the streets of Turin with his wife Maria Pistoletto in an action entitled Walking Sculpture, creating a political, yet playful gesture.
For UBS Openings: Long Weekend a contemporary replica of the original sculpture will be made using today's newspapers to represent today's political and social condition. It will be rolled by Michelangelo and Maria Pistoletto from Tate Modern, across the Millennium Bridge, through parts of the city, and then complete it's journey back to Tate on a boat.
