Palermo, Vanessa Beecroft’s hymn to femininity at the Abatellis. VIDEO

A tableau vivant of Christian Bacchantes, of Magdalenes seeking comfort, a Madonna breastfeeding her baby. Vanessa Beecroft’s performance at the Palazzo Abatellis Museum in Palermo is extraordinary, of an enormous and soft force at the same time, a hymn to hidden femininity, now in a shroud, now in a cassock, in direct dialogue with the sculptures of the Beecroft which recall Laurana’s Eleonora d’Aragona.

The very long queue of people, hundreds of people, already reaches the Foro Italico and is getting bigger by the hour. Admission until 21. The exhibition of sculptures will be open until 31 January.
