Natura Morta

Michele Spanghero solo exhibition at Palinsesti 2015

Fondazione Ado Furlan, Pordenone, November 13, 2016 - January 8, 2017.
Exhibition curated by Davide Bevilacqua

According to tradition, every year Pordenone hosts the exhibition of the winner of the previous edition of the award Premio in Sesto at Fondazione Ado Furlan.

For the occasion, artist Michele Spanghero presents Pebbles, the project chosen by the audience of Palinsesti in 2015. Pebbles is a sound installation especially created for the castle's moat. The project consists of an installation of metallic semi-spheres positioned between the rocks of the moat. When the spheres are hit - by real pebbles, for instance - they produce sounds which reverberate all around and testify to the interaction that just occurred.

Spanghero's second project presented in the exhibition is Natura Morta, a work which revisits the famous pictorial genre of still life ("natura morta" in Italian) in a three-dimensional and acoustic way: sound is generated by converting fruit's chemical energy into electrical energy.

The installation is the result of the collaboration between Michele Spanghero and artist-curator Davide Bevilacqua.
