A great thank you to all people who were involved

The project TARZAN NOIR (Black Tarzan), initiated by Marcello Maloberti in association with CAC Brétigny and the community centre La Fontaine, has been accomplished in the framework of the Nuit Blanche, thanks to the support of the 10e edition curators. Regarding the title of the Parisian event, not devoid of some irony, it extends the play on the oxymoron (according to the English author, "Tarzan" means "White-skin" in ape language).
The Italian artist was invited for a residency in July at Brétigny-sur-Orge and presented the second stage of the project in cooperation with the community centre La Fontaine, located in the same city. The project was deployed over a certain length of time and was declined in several forms: publication, procedure, procession and performance.

« Tarzan Noir » is a co-production of CAC Brétigny - Centre d'art contemporain Brétigny, Centre Social La Fontaine of Brétigny-sur-Orge and Nuit Blanche Paris 2011 Co-curated et organised by Pierre Bal-Blanc, director of CAC Brétigny, Luca Cerizza, independant curator, Julien Duc-Maugé, territorial project curator CAC Brétigny, Martine Brigandat, director of centre social La Fontaine, Mohamed Bouazzaoui, educator of centre social La Fontaine.

Marcello Maloberti was born in Italy in 1966; he lives in the outskirts of Milan in a popular neighbourhood that shares with the "other capital" of fashion a large array of colours, behaviours and styles, however without the honours of the catwalks. It is this environment, composed as a multiple origins cut-ups, that provides energy and inspiration to the artist. Free as a Tarzan shipwrecked on the banks of the Po, the urban jungle is his preferred territory. He gathers into groups the talents, with no age, competence or origin distinctions. Similarly to the ape man of Edgar Rice Burroughs' famed novel, he summons peace between the races in the clearings of the faraway neighbourhoods (Circus Palermo, 2007). From the slums left out by tourist guides, he leads his likes and gathers heterogeneous relatives in a harmonious procession towards the posh districts(The ants struggle on the snow, Washington Square Park, New York 2009).
