PRESEASON OPENING PERFORMANCE
Friday, August 24 at 7 p.m.
Bleu Remix, Yann Marussich, with sound performance by Steve Roden and Glenn Bach
Friday, August 24, 7 p.m.
In his spectacle-installation Bleu Remix, Yann Marussich returns to a theme originally explored in Bleu Provisoire (2001), a spectacle in which a mysterious blue liquid oozes through the layers of his skin as though it were the final effect or by-product of his body’s inner processes. In Bleu Remix, the artist once more invites the viewer to experience an intimate journey through the corners of his body. Each time the spectacle is performed, a different (local) musician accompanies Marussich. This unique, singular confrontation establishes a new relationship between the sound and image. The meeting of the two artists brings an element of risk and uniqueness to the event, as if the music explores the spectacle repeatedly, resulting in new ways of perception. Marussich’s spectacle-installation at Grand Central Art Center will be accompanied by live sound performed by artists Steve Roden and Glenn Bach.
This program is in collaboration with LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions), with support for Bleu Remix at both venues generously provided by swissnex San Francisco, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, and the City and Canton of Geneva.
