Como Contemporary Festival 2021

Exhibition Exibition's opening

Locandina Mostra CORPO SENZA ORGANIComo Contemporary Festival reopens its doors after the summer break with the photography exhibition Corpo Senza Organi (Body Without Organs) by Marco Frigerio and the sound art works by Alessandro Perini (Fossili Sonori, Sound Fossils).

The exhibition will be hosted by the Museo della Seta (Silk museum) in Como from December 1 till December 12 and will also welcome the finalists if the 5th edition of the International Composition Competition Appassionato Ensemble. The final concert and the award ceremony will take place on Sunday, December 12, at 5 p.m., with the presence of tbe jury chaired by Alessandro Solbiati.

During this final evening the art works on display will be accompanied by the sounds of a contemporary music concert, as it is an established tradition of this festival, whose aim is to be a place and time for socializing and sharing, when music blends with and contaminates other art forms.

During the exhibition it will be possible to view the works that represent the foundation of Frigerio's research in the last 15 years, therefore his works "informed" by the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze (1. Body without Organs - Probe Heads; Cartographies, Apparatus of Capture) , the works linked to that aspect of his research aimed at specifically redefining the limits of the photographic language (Unthinkable Ethnographies), his Crucifixions will also be exhibited, made with large-format Polaroids (20x25cm), in which the artist investigates that neutral, void and naked space in which life and death breathe together, and also will be exhibited the large-scale prints of the Working Class series, the artist's first work aimed at investigating the effects of capitalism in modern society...

The exhibition also includes works by the Como-born artist Alessandro Perini - who moved 12 years ago to Malmö, Sweden - whose works range from instrumental and electronic music to audiovisual and light-based works, net-art, land-art and vibration-based works, recently focusing on custom-built machines. For Como Contemporary Festival Perini will show two of his Sound Fossils, clay artifacts the shape of which is derived from sonic / geological phenomena.
