Icônes de l'art Moderne: la Collection Chtchoukine

The Saskia Boddeke and Peter Greenaway have been invited by the Louis Vuitton Foundation to be part with a video installation to the exhibition: Icônes de l'art Moderne: la Collection Chtchoukine. This exhibition, showing 160 masterpieces of Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse amongst others, pays tribute to one of the greatest Art patrons of the early 20th century, Sergei Shchukin, the visionairy Russian collector of French modern art.

Chtchoukine, Matisse, la danse et la musique

Boddeke and Greenaway have created a poetic multi-screen-video installation inspired by the two paintings: La Danse and La Musique of Henri Matisse. The video is a visual dance poem that tells about these two paintings, the relationship between the painter Henri Matisse and the Russian visionary collector of French modern art Sergei Shchukin and the timeframe they lived in.

Together with the Spanish choreographer Juanjo Arques and the dancers of The Dutch National Ballet, Boddeke has created an atmosphere of balance and harmony. The dance is accompanied by the music of the Italian composer Luca D’Alberto which reflects the ‘sound’ of the painting Music.
