Villa Croce presents Little Malthusian Invasions, a solo show of Marguerite Kahrl that features two bodies of work by the American artist: the ongoing Noble Savages series of drawings, sculptures and videos in addition to a selection of relational objects from Con MOI, a collaborative project developed in the area of the former Olympic village in Turin.
Opening April 21, 6 pm with performance ‘On nature of matter’ by Marguerite Kahrl and Giuseppe Gavazza
Opening the exhibition Small Malthusian Invasions with a performance, Kahrl and Gavazza take the opportunity to share their artistic collaboration, including sound for the video installation Malthusian Matter, “the ecology of little invasions” and the videos related to the project Con MOI.
They invite viewers to experience a live time-lapse, installing and animating a short laboratory that is more of an open studio than a theater stage. Marguerite will produce one of her Noble Savages made of hemp fabrics while Giuseppe will realize, in parallel, some of the sound objects/musical instruments used for the music of the videos, virtual objects.
Gavazza has created the soundtrack for the videos, and virtual objects with the physical modeling software “Genesis”. An electronic lutherie builds vibrating structures that overlay the physical laws of the real world with the digital world, perceptible through video projection and audio diffusion.
