Visit to the exhibition "Albert Serra. Roi Soleil" with Carles Guerra, director of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies

Last Thursday, May 23rd we organized a visit for our collaborators to the exhibition Albert Serra. Roi Soleil at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies. We had the pleasure to count on the explanations by the director of the foundation, Carles Guerra.

In 2017, a year after the film about the solitary and agonizing end of Sun King’s life in La mort de Louis XIV (The Death of Louis XIV), Albert Serra prepared a new artistic version on the same historical episode. This time, a performance at a gallery in Lisboa. Over seven days a dying Louis XIV was embodied by the actor Lluís Serrat, in an austere setting illuminated with red neon light. Roi Soleil is the filming of the performance, condensed in an hour of minimalist cinema which follows the particular style of the film-maker.
