Around “In Là”


January 14, 2023


Luigi Pecci Centre for Contemporary Art, Prato, Italy

Event Web Site:

As part of the large exhibition dedicated to the Tuscan artist Massimo Bartolini, curated by Luca Cerizza with Elena Magini, I collaborated with him on a musical installation called In Là. Massimo’s installation consists of scaffolding, transformed into organ bars, running through 7 rooms of the museum. There will be a special event towards the end of the exhibition with two concerts, in which three electric pianos are added to the sounds of the installation. The installation music itself lasts for 20 minutes, followed by a ten-minute rest for the mechanism to cool down, and other music is played between the two runs of the installation.
