Anri Sala AS YOU GO
Anri Sala (Tirana, 1974) uses film and video, music, sculpture,
photographs and drawings to create installations that
explore the cracks, gaps, overlaps, and echoes through
which reality unfolds in time and events acquire meaning.
In architectural space he modulates visual, sonic and tactile
elements and thereby generates new interpretations of
reality. Music constitutes an integral part of his art and is one
of the features shared by his most recent works.
This catalog develops an in-depth examination of AS YOU GO,
the project devised by Sala specifically for Castello di Rivoli
Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in the form of an exhibition that
also constitutes a single new work, extended over time and
in the exhibition space, and capable of involving the viewer in
an unprecedented perceptual experience.
In addition to new essays by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and
Marcella Beccaria, the volume includes the largest selection
of the artist’s writings ever published, a chronological list
of solo and group exhibitions and an anthology of essays
on Sala, from 2000 to the present, by Natalie Bell, Svetlana
Boym, Julia Garimorth, Boris Groys, Christine Macel, Edi
Muka, Molly Nesbit, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Philippe Parreno,
Vladimir Perisic, Nicolaus Schafhausen, Noam Segal, Joshua
Simon and Peter Szendy.
