DuchampRama, curated by Galerie Duchamp in collaboration with Centre Pompidou and Jonathan Pouthier, head of the collection of the Musée National d’Art Moderne – Centre Pompidou, is a new project of Galerie Duchamp dedicated to video and moving images.
For an entire year from November 2022, the gallery will dedicate a whole space to the presentation of films by artists from the collections of the Musée National d’Art Moderne – Centre Pompidou.
The first session of exploration of the collections (November 2022-May 2023) interrogates the Duchampian gesture and its legacy through the history of artists’ films.
Gianfranco Baruchello participates in this session with the projection of the film Verifica incerta (Disperse Exclamatory Phase), in conjunction with a film by Marcel Duchamp, the Rotoreliefs of the Anémin Cinéma, shot in 1926 with the help of Man Ray.
In Verifica incerta, made in collaboration with Alberto Grifi, the first Italian experiment of found footage, Marcel Duchamp appears, among the various film clips, filmed by Baruchello as he smokes a cigar and looks directly into the camera.
