Join us for a conversation with Alexie Glass-Kantor, Curator, Australian Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale which is represented by artist Marco Fusinato with the work DESASTRES.
DESASTRES is an experimental noise project that synchronises sound with image and takes the form of a durational solo performance as installation. Fusinato is performing live for 200 days in the pavilion using an electric guitar as a signal generator into mass amplification to improvise slabs of noise, saturated feedback and discordant intensities that trigger a deluge of images.
Fusinato (Naarm / Melbourne) is a contemporary artist and noise-musician whose work takes the form of installation, photographic reproduction, design, performance and recording. DESASTRES is a culmination of his interests in noise/experimental music, underground culture, mass media images and art history.
Glass-Kantor (Gadigal / Sydney) is the Executive Director of Artspace, Sydney and Curator, Encounters, Art Basel | Hong Kong (2015—ongoing). Since 2000 she has been active as a curator working across independent spaces, museums, biennials, and festivals, and as curator or co-curator of over two hundred exhibitions.
Glass-Kantor will be in conversation with Elyse Goldfinch, Associate Curator about the collaboration with Fusinato and the development and realisation of the DESASTRES project in the Australian Pavilion.
