Marie Cool & Fabio Balducci
French artist Marie Cool and Italian dancer Fabio Balducci work together as a performance duo. For PERFORMA07, Cool and Balducci present Untitled (Prayers, 1996-2007) at the Clocktower Gallery, a series of understated and deceptively simple actions, which incorporate everyday objects such as thread, salt, effervescent aspirin, scotch tape, and a nylon bag. Seventy such actions have been developed by them to date, each lasting between one and nine minutes. Of these, up to 15 are carefully edited together by Cool and Balducci to produce an evening performance.

About the Artist
Marie Cool (1961, France) and Fabio Balducci (1964, Italy) live and work in Paris. Based in France, Marie Cool and Fabio Balducci have collaborated since 1995 to great international acclaim. These selections from their series of short (often two to three minute-long) performances Untitled (Prayers) 1996-2004, are performed solo by Marie Cool, who uses basic movements, objects, and materials to evoke both the personal and universal. Their work has been presented in many festivals and venues in Europe including Avignon Festival, Ikon Gallery, South London, Maison Rouge/Fondation, Mudam, and Festival d'Automne a Paris.

Curated by Defne Ayas. Co-presented by P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (a Museum of Modern Art affiliate) and PERFORMA. Supported by The Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the Dena Foundation for Contemporary Art.
