CLAUDIO BEORCHIA

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE AT THE GALLERIE DELL’ACCADEMIA DI VENEZIA

Claudio Beorchia (b. 1979 in Vercelli, Italy) is the protagonist of the first Artist in Residence Project jointly organised by the Gallerie dell’Accademia and the Accademia di Belle Arti of Venice, together with the We Are Here Venice association and thanks to the fundamental support of the London Stock Exchange Group Foundation and other generous sponsors.

Between 14 January and 12 April 2019, the artist will create a work which will be presented to the public from the last day of residence to 12 May 2019 and then become part of the Gallerie’s collection. Beorchia’s creation, entitled Aurale (Aural), examines the relationship between the museum’s environment and its visitors by exploring the bond originating between viewers and the paintings on display.

AN ARTIST AMONG THE MUSEUM’S CUSTODIANS

Claudio Beorchia will spend the first 40 days of residence wandering around the museum, looking for inspiration and prompts that will then be transformed into an integral part of his work. Disguised as a member of staff, he will move unnoticed from hall to hall, carefully listening to what visitors say while they admire the works on display and noting down both the most poetic and original exchanges, as well as the most unexpected, intimate, and personal observations overheard by the paintings on the museum walls. Those who manage to recognise him will be able to ask him questions and discover from his very lips the profound meaning of this project.

CLAUDIO BEORCHIA AT THE ACCADEMIA DI BELLE ARTI OF VENICE

Claudio Beorchia will be offered a studio by the Accademia di Belle Arti of Venice where, after the preliminary stage of performative research through the Gallerie halls, he will be able to create a work which will go on to form part of the museum’s collection.

During the residence, seminars and workshops will be held with the students of the Accademia.

MONDAY 14 JANUARY 2019 AT 3.30 P.M. | AULA MAGNA

GUIDED TOURS

By narrating his peculiar experience with the museum, Beorchia will illustrate the meaning of his Aurale project and reinterpret the masterpieces from the past through his sensibility as a contemporary artist.
