DORIAN and THE DAYS BEFORE: death, destruction and detroit II

Robert Wilson

Info: We are delighted to present DORIAN and THE DAYS BEFORE: death, destruction and detroit III, Robert Wilson’s first solo exhibition at Beck & Eggeling. Opening one day after the world premiere of Robert Wilson’s new play Dorian at the Düsseldorf Schauspielhaus, the exhibition features drawings, design and a video work by one of the most eclectic and influential artists working today. Robert Wilson transforms the gallery into a space for imagination just like he moulds the stage for his theatre projects. He associatively combines the individual elements of the show – works, light, music, text – into a Gesamtkunstwerk, which the viewer is not only meant to see, but rather to experience. With diverse references to art and literature, high and popular culture, his own work and his own biography, he weaves multiple levels of meaning around the exhibition that challenge the viewer to take an associative approach to the experience.
