Description

ECCE HOMO is a project centered around an installation of paintings and sculptures by Bruce Clarke. The exhibition, hosted at the National Museum of Resistance and Human Rights in Esch-sur-Alzette from September to December 2022, is part of a current of critical figuration. It is punctuated by the Butō dance performance THE WRECKAGE OF MY FLESH, by the Tebby Ramasike collective. The performance creates a physical dialogue with the plastic works.

The artists thematize the consequences of wars, crimes against humanity and genocide on people, invoking victims, suffering, deportation, and destruction. They create links with forced displacement, exile and migration. But they also approach their intrinsic corollary: strength, physical and mental resilience, human dignity.

Also part of the project are various interventions by Bruce Clarke and Tebby Ramasike on the French territory of Esch2022, such as the commemorative mural "Les Limbes de Thil", created by Bruce Clarke at the entrance of the Tiercelet mine in Thil (F) and numerous performances by Tebby Ramasike that will take place there in the coming months, and at the museum in Esch. At the same time, the artist and choreographer will extend part of the ECCE HOMO project to our partners at the Kaunas Ninth Fort Museum, a place where thousands of Jews and political prisoners were executed during the Nazi occupation, thus creating a link between Esch, Thil and Kaunas.

The project includes artistic workshops and a series of lectures, as well as an important pedagogical program with French and Luxembourgish schools.

About

Bruce Clarke, born in 1959 in England, is a painter and photographer of South African origin who lives and works in Paris.
Clarke's grandparents, of Jewish origin, came from Kaunas and managed to emigrate to South Africa in the 1930s. No other family members were found alive in Lithuania after the Shoah.
Clarke integrates his political commitment and quest for human rights into his visual arts research. He has undertaken numerous projects related to memory in Rwanda and elsewhere. Clarke hopes that his art, which is part of a current of critical figuration, will stimulate reflection on the contemporary world and the representations we have of it.

Tebby W.T. Ramasike, born 1965 in South Africa, works as a Butō dancer, actor, choreographer and teacher. He lives near Arlon (B) and works on projects on an international level. In Esch-sur-Alzette, he regularly cooperates with the Musée National de la Résistance et des Droits Humains and the Kulturfabrik.
