Anri Sala AS YOU GO










247 pg.

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.
