MICHELE SPANGHERO | APRI GLI OCCHI! / OPEN YOUR EYES!: PASOLINI OUT LOUD
From September 7 to October 23, 2022.
In this work significantly titled OPEN YOUR EYES. Pasolini Out Loud, Spanghero challenges Gideon Bachmann's long conversations with Pasolini (ten hours preserved by Cinemazero in Pordenone, Italy). The artist worked by extracting from the mass of tapes he meticulously listened to a single, unique phrase taken from a recording from backstage of a tremendous, perfect, current and extremely tormented film: Salo or the 120 days of Sodom.
Michele Spanghero's work has always moved between sound, music and voices, also understood as a profound frequency of things, souls, places, people and spaces that surround them, that interact with them, as if they had a life of their own.
This work is located within the premises of the Cinémathèque Québécoise, in Montréal, where Pasolini was presenting several times, and, once again, his eternal torment in any place to visit, even here, now welcomed now rejected, despised or understood. Always extreme, hardly reconciling.
- Opening Wednesday, September 7 at 5 p.m.
