Jasmina Cibic. Stagecraft
Catalogue of the eponymous exhibition at macLYON.
For Jasmina Cibic, artist-researcher, each film project is an opportunity to delve into the archives, into their testimonies as well as their silences, in order to reveal the relationship that all forms of power, whether state, governmental, partisan or diplomatic, have with the arts. For the exhibition "Stagecraft - a staging of power", presented at macLYON from 15 September 2021 to 2 January 2022, Jasmina Cibic has brought together several years of research devoted to the notion of gift in the diplomatic context. The Gift (2019-2021), shown for the first time in its full version, is a cinematic journey that explores the use of culture as a political gift at a time of European identity crises. The nation is broken and in order for it to heal, a perfect gift must be given to those who make it up, a gift that will overcome deep divisions in times of political and ideological crisis.
The exhibition catalogue includes essays by Matthieu Lelièvre, curator of the exhibition, and by iLiana Fokianaki, curator, art critic and educator based in Athens and Rotterdam, as well as a synopsis of the film The Gift and a presentation of the characters and locations. A rich iconography, consisting of views of the exhibition at macLYON and a large selection of archives on which Jasmina Cibic based her conception of The Gift, completes the book.
