L’art dans les chapelles
Chapelle Saint-Jean, Le Sourn, France
7 July – 17 September 2017
This installation in the Chapelle Saint-Jean is made of hanging ceramic musical shape notes, converting the church itself into a musical instrument. There are 7 different shapes: do re mi fa sol la ti. Approximately two hundred of these hang on thread from the metal cross beams of the church. Apfelbaum has also made mallets for the piece, and will present a series of notation spray drawings which are a reference to graffiti where writing is a form of drawing.
Fondazione Merz, Turin
3 July – 1 October 2017
For the exhibition at the Fondazione Merz, Bartolini has reinterpreted the spaces creating an atmosphere of intense and intimate suggestion, animated by the intangible presence of music. Bartolini has always been a mediator in the interaction between space and spectator, working on a perceptive and experiential level. His work, expressed in a wide variety of media and techniques, of artificial and natural materials, creates sensory situations by interweaving sounds, images and light effects.
