C0034: The Gargantuan Shoe

Performance: Saturday 29 May, 2 โ€“ 6 pm

San Mei Gallery is pleased to present C0034: The Gargantuan Shoe, a performance by Luca Bosani.

Originally due to take place in November 2020, the performance has been rescheduled to 29 May due to lockdown restrictions.

On 29 May, Luca Bosani together with two performers will stage a mysterious and playful investigation around a giant, gargantuan, sonic shoe. Questioning the boundaries between reality and fiction, exploring identity as a social and moral construct, Bosani will assume the role of a magic reality investigator, trying to understand how and why a huge black shoe suddenly appeared in the gallery space.

Due to the coronavirus restrictions, the durational performance will unfold continuously over 4 hours (2 - 6pm). Viewing slots can be booked every half hour of the performance. Each slot will be strictly limited to maintain social distancing.

Luca Bosaniโ€™s practice is an ongoing exploration of the fluid and complex nature of identity, via performance, sculpture, painting and costume design. His Case series started in the summer 2020, at the end of first lockdown, when the artist quit his lecturer position at City of Westminster College, London, to fully dedicate himself to private investigations of the real. The Gargantuan Shoe is the Case 0034 and will only be shown once, at San Mei Gallery.

Bosaniโ€™s recent solo exhibitions and performances include C0032: I Masnadieri Volanti (Residenza La Fornace, IT, 2020); BOMBER TRAINING, online performance workout in Pregnana Milanese, IT, commissioned by AIR Gallery Altrincham (2020); Too Early to Love You, Too Late To Kiss You, Tate Britain, (London, 2019); STRIP at Lewisham Arthouse (London, 2019); Knaves of Radiance (paintings) at Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall (London, 2019); Knaves of Radiance (Bolan edition) commissioned by Nine Elms & Art in Embassies at Nine Elms Pavillion (London, 2018); Performing the unknown, Hortensia Gallery (London, 2018); I-YOU at Fabbrica del Vapore, (Milan, 2015).
