Promenades à Rome
Text and photography by Claudine Boeglin
The master pieces of Time Is Out of Joint
collide with the ghostly sculptures of Robert Morris
[2015-2018]. It is Morris's first retrospective since the artist passed away at the age of 87, from pneumonia in Kingston, New York. The installation’s title, Time is Out of Joint
, refers to Shakespeare’s Hamlet
[Act I, scene 5]. It expresses his idea that his world is not sane and that things are not as they should be.
In its renewed spaces, the museum offers a profound reinterpretation of the permanent collection. Between whispers and tensions, the curatorial conversation is unconventional, sensual and reflective. A perfect moment of voluptuous solitude. An ode to the tenuous and the monumental.
