Retrospective by Xavier Le Roy

“Retrospective” by Xavier Le Roy is an exhibition conceived as a choreography of actions that will be carried out by performers for the duration of the exhibition. These actions will compose situations that inquire into various experiences about how we use, consume or produce time.

This exhibition employs retrospective as a mode of production rather than aiming to show the development of an artist’s work over a period of time. It seeks to recast the material from the solo choreographies in situations with live actions where the apparatuses of the theater performance and the museum exhibition intersect.

Based on solo works by Xavier Le Roy created between 1994 and 2010, the work unfolds in three time axes: the duration of the visit composed by each visitor, the daily basis of labor time of 16 performers and the time of the growth of a new composition during the length of the exhibition.

With 6 to 7 performers alternating with each other: Idurre Azkue, Quim Bigas, Cristina Blanco, Pere Faura, Sergi Faustino, Núria Gregori, Mizar Martínez, Guillem Mont de Palol, Elena Murcia, Mariona Naudin, Cristina Nuñez, Aimar Pérez, Karolina Rychlik, Clara Tena, Carme Torrent, Javier Vaquero.
