Anri Sala: As you Go
Carolyn ChristovBakargiev and Marcella Beccaria
Anri Sala (Tirana, 1974) uses film, 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. Through architectural space he modulates visual, sonic and tactile elements and thereby generates new interpretations of reality and unprecedented perceptual possibilities. Music constitutes an integral part of his art and is one of the features shared by his most recent works.This catalogue 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.
Anri Sala (Tirana, 1974) is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Berlin.
