Moe Yoshida, Luca Veggetti Exhibition / 吉田萠, ルカ・ヴェジェッティ「OLD FACES – for an imaginary action」

31 March – 24 April, 2023
Moe Yoshida and Luca Veggetti create an exhibition about an imaginary theatrical form yet to be performed.
Masks reveal the animals hidden in our bodies as distant ancestors, while drawings conjure the theatrical situations that could contain them. Together they invite visitors to a performance that celebrates the dawn of life, a stage for the origins of animals and humans.
