Film screening and last days of Doubling

Pierre Coulibeuf: Doubling at Hafnarhús.

The last day of the exhibition Doubling at Hafnarhús is Sunday 12 November.

In the exhibition, Coulibeuf presents three video installations. His most recent work was created in collaboration with the Icelandic dancers Erna Ómarsdóttir and Lovísa Ósk Gunnarsdóttir and partly shot in the museum‘s Hafnarhús venue.

On the last day of the exhibition there will be a special screening on the film Doctor Fabre Will Cure You (2013/6 min) by Coulibeuf at Hafnarhús at 15h00. The film—a modern fairy tale—projects Jan Fabre into his own imaginative universe and composes a character who changes ceaselessly identity, plays numerous roles under the most varied disguises; behind a mask, still another mask… The female character, like a ‘demon of passage’ using different faces, haunts the male character and inspires his metamorphoses, ad infinitum.

An avant-garde filmmaker and visual artist, Coulibeuf uses contemporary creation as material for his cinematic and artistic work. He develops a cross-disciplinary project: he makes experimental fictions that skilfully invest the sphere of art and in which changes of identity affect the universes and artists inspiring his works.

Previously, Coulibeuf has created works inspired by and in collaboration with Pierre Klossowski, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Marina Abramovic, Michel Butor, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Jan Fabre, Meg Stuart, among others.
