Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea hosts a solo show by world renowned artist Anri Sala (Tirana, 1974). Since 2000 Anri Sala has been producing film and sound installations, sculptures, photographs, and drawings that explore the fractures, the intervals, the overlaps and the echoes through which reality unfolds through time, he also uses space to shape elements offering both interpretations of language and culture. Music plays a fundamental role in the artists’ work.
The exhibition puts together some of the most significant film pieces made by Anri Sala in recent years, including Ravel Ravel (2013), Take Over (2017), and If and Only If (2018), as well as the sculpture Bridges in the Doldrums (2016).
The title of the show AS YOU GO refers to the flow of images in motion, leaving the viewer to decide whether to stop to observe the video, or simply go with the flow with the moving sculpture, or as Sala refers to it, the ‘parade’.
