Hackney Empire presents the visionary world of the Italian photographer Marco Sanges
. Preview night: 11th of February from 6:30.
Every sequence tells a unique, multi-layered story, creating a highly personal, imaginary cinema. This body work takes shape in this truly vintage exhibition called Big Scenes. Marco Sangess works are narrative based, always evoking a feeling of mystery and the sense of a sensual, uncanny world just out of grasp. On the 11th of February, the preview night will unveil a live installation co-deviced with director Alberto Bona, and "Big Scenes" will make the spectator enter a night of decadence: performances and screenings will unveil an exhibition which will awake the senses of desire, awe and lust.
Special guests: controversial artist Gavin Turk and legendary composer Michael Nyman, whose music will be specially performed live by a string quartet.
