DESCRIPTION

The dream of art in the work of the Gao Brothers

ACHILLE BONITO OLIVA

The work of the Gao Brothers is generated by a multimedia poetics that draws upon diverse languages such as performance, photography, painting and sculpture. In the international art scenario the Gao Brothers occupy a space that pursues the need for social communication and exchange through art.

The fact that photography is the medium used to document their performances, organised in public and private spaces through the use of the body, is far from incidental. Their body art is not a flaunting of the nude, but rather a laying bare of humanity itself so as to lead it, through embrace, to a condition of dialogue and exchange.
