Thank you for coming. I will try to keep the rant and rave tucked in and the available facts as lined up as possible. The first story I have to tell is not exactly true, but it isn’t exactly false, either. It’s a story about literature leaving the line and entering the plane, painting leaving the plane and entering space, sculpture stepping into the fourth dimension and finally proposing a ‘completely new art form’. Call these forms a secession of tricksters who violate the boundaries to keep them alacritous and productive, who view the walls not as a fence but a perch. For nobody knows himself, if he is only himself and not also another one at the same time.
Last seen in Paris, The Clifford Irving Show stays true to its founding principles: life-writing, truth-bending, stage-celebrating. An acclaimed theater director David Levine will present theatrical adaptations of “Manhattan’s Serenade” and “Neighbor’s Wife” – two brand new screenplays by Clifford Irving, in a gallery that will act as a backdrop and a character of the play. Interspersed with acts and artefacts by Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, Marco Belfiore, Elise Berkvens, Pierre Bismuth, Goda Budvytyte, Celine Butaye, Audrey Cottin, Chris Evans, Mario Garcia Torres, Malak Helmy, Will Holder, Clifford Irving, Kevin Killian, Gabriel Lester, David Marcel Levine, Nicholas Matranga, John Menick, Elena Narbutaite, Morten Norbye Halvorsen, Michael Portnoy, Vivian Rehberg,Carson Salter, Aaron Schuster, Benjamin Seror, Snowden Snowden, Lauren von Gogh, Adva Zakai and more…
Curated by Raimundas Malasauskas
“Phantom Rosebuds”, an autobiography of Clifford Irving, as well as “The Autobiography of Any One Being Including Every One Before”, both designed by Dexter Sinister, will be available.
