Nicole Bachmann performs in 'Sol Invictus' at Istituto Svizzero, Rome, IT on Saturday 18 December, 6 – 12pm.
Bachmann presents her performance 'partly anchored, a mesh of seeds' (2021), which was firstly presented as part of Whitechapel Gallery's 'Nocturnal Creatures 2021', at Istituto Svizzero performed by Chess Boughey, Aurore Vigneron and Carl Harrison.
"Istituto Svizzero celebrates the winter solstice through a series of performances and listening sessions in Roma, Milano and Palermo. At first glance, the celebration of sunlight and the celebration of Christmas would appear to be two opposites: the luminous splendour of the day and the silvery glow of the winter moon, the warmth of sun’s rays and the cold silence of Advent. Yet, Christmas festivities find their origins in the pagan festival dedicated to the sun, from Latin Sol Invictus, as the star that allows life on Earth, the light in the night, the one that defeats the darkness."
