For the first time, the Russian Museum - Marble Palace and the Centre national des arts plastiques are presenting "Inside the Marble Palace of St Petersburg", a monthly programme based on a selection of video productions from the Cnap collection, giving pride of place to performance cinema.

I consider this to be what every member of the audience is destined to experience, with the performer - or interpreter as they are known, more aptly in French – being the translator, acting as the guiding light and bridge between the work of the choreographer and the audience” (Jérôme Bel)

Although, as Claudia Triozzi reminded us recently, performance for an artiste consists of keeping themselves out of the representation, as well as being transported out of yourself, performance also makes another use of time which de-subjectivizes gestures, actions and situations. This is the performance cinema that a number of artistes are truly in the process of inventing today: a cinema that literally “performs” both its content and form, describing completely new time loops. Moreover, these temporal constructions are compiled based on scores that play a recurring role in contemporary art. Sound scores in the musical sense of the term but also scores for gestures and poses to model experiences and forms that are to be interpreted and performed again, thus bringing the works within the confines of music, cinema and dance.
