Cathy Josefowitz (1956-2014) was a prolific artist from a very young age. Her work is characterised by a quest for the self and its otherness, expressed through painting, drawing and choreography. Born in 1956 in New York, this Swiss artist never ceased to explore – sometimes to the point of obsession – what makes up the body: her own, but also that of others. Anacrónica II: Lying on the Hip is the result of a research project led by performer Garrett Nelson on the work and legacy of Cathy Josefowitz. The aim is to create a transgenerational dialogue between two artists whose work intersects dance, performance and queer studies.

Garrett Nelson developed this project at the joint invitation of the Arsenic, the Centre culturel suisse de Paris, La Becque and the Kunsthaus Langenthal, in collaboration with curator Elise Lammer and the Amis de Cathy Josefowitz association. This performance is part of the retrospective touring exhibition of Cathy Josefowitz’s work at the Kunsthaus Langenthal, the Centre culturel suisse in Paris and the MACRO Roma in collaboration with curator Elise Lammer. It will be held successively in the three institutions between August 2021 and March 2022.
