Cécilia Bengolea

Presented by Almine Rech and àngels barcelona, with support from FLUXUS

Anticlockwise Spin

Cecilia Bengolea’s practice is based in anthropological dance, video documentation, collage and sculpture. 

Bengolea’s project for Frieze London will explore themes including: the history of anthropological and urban dance forms and their relation to nature, the elements and figuration; and dance and performance as animated sculpture. These forms allow her to become both object and subject simultaneously.

For Anticlockwise Spin, dancers spin to make a hole in time, connecting with the earth and the cosmos.

A percentage of profits from the sale of the Deep Sea Mind sculptures, featured in the work, will be donated to charities helping to clean the oceans.

Cecilia Bengolea’s (born 1979, Buenos, Aires; lives and works in Paris) recent video installations and performances include: the Gwangju Biennial (2014), Biennale de Lyon (2015), Biennale de Sao Paulo (2016), The Infinite Mix, Hayward Gallery London (2016), Palais de Tokyo, Fiorucci Art Trust, Stromboli and Dhaka Art Summit (2018), TBA21 San Lorenzo Venice (2018), E.A.T Engadin Art Talks (2019), Centre Pompidou (2010, 2016, 2019), Desertx (2019,) Bienale de Venezia (2019) and Der Tank Art Basel (2019).
