New SRISA Gallery Exhibit & Performance: CHRETIEN – BETTINI

This Friday, the SRISA Gallery of Contemporary Art opens the the Fall season with a performance by French artist Anthony Chretien and Swiss artist/ musician Guy Bettini.  The duo performance captures the physical act of drawing with an elaborated sound recording of Chretien’s charcoal drawing.   This improvised drawing is created in front of an audience of spectators and accompanied by a work in sound by Bettini that is improvised and elaborated in conjunction with the drawing.

Starting October 1st an installation documenting the performance along with works by Bettini will be visible in both the main entrance space and gallery space on Via San Gallo 53r.  The performance will be followed by a talk given by Swiss philosopher Raffaele Scolari entitled “”il ritorno del traccio”.”

Performance: Friday, 7pm to 8 pm in Via San Gallo 53r Florence, Italy
The show is visible from October 1, 2011 to November 5th , 2011 from 12pm – 10pm
Venerdì 30.09.2011 alle 19.00 l’artista francese Anthony Chretien e l’artista-musicista svizzero Guy Bettini apriranno con una “performance multimediale” la loro bi-personale alla SRISA galleria d’arte contemporanea in via San Gallo 53r nel centro di Firenze. La “performance” propone un grande disegno al carboncino che Chretien improvvisa davanti agli occhi degli spettatori, accompagnato dall’elaborazione istantanea dei suoni da lui prodotti da parte di Bettini. Dal primo ottobre sarà poi possibile apprezzare le opere al carboncino di Chretien come pure alcuni lavori d’arte sociale di Bettini tra cui lo “zero-euro” coniato nel 2001 e che attualmente con la crisi monetaria che avvolge la moneta europea si impone grazie al suo carattere profetico e liberatorio.  Il performance sara seguito da una conferenza di filosofo Svizzero, Raffaele Scolari intitolato “il ritorno del traccio.”
