Centre for Contemporary Art, Aberdeen presents a festival within a festival. Not so much boutique as ‘guest house’. Some of the best new music in Scotland (and some from further afield) over three days in the intimate surroundings of our gallery. A mobile sound installation as part of sound festival 2011, the launch of “No Formula One No Cry” will be held on Saturday 29 Oct at the IMP & PVA sound music festival. “No Formula One No Cry” is an Anri Sala’s special project, curated by Fani Zguro. “No Formula One No Cry” explores the relationship between speed and space in the city.
As part of the residency in Casa Tres Patios Medellin, Fani Zguro presents “Missing Landscape”, a screening looped with the partecipation of the other two artists Bruno Muzzolini and Anri Sala. Bruno Muzzolini in the video “Anema e Core” (2008) represents the nucleus of this exploration.
1 October – 20 November 2011
Anri Sala (born 1974, Tirana) is a leading contemporary artist whose early videos and films mined his personal experience to reflect on the social and political change taking place in his native Albania. Sala has attached a growing importance to sound, creating remarkable works in which he recasts sound’s relationship to the image. Linked to this development is Sala’s long-standing interest in performance, and particularly musical performance. A central premise of this exhibition is that most of the works presented at the Serpentine either use a live performance as their starting point or could lead to a performance in the future.
