Artist's Talk

Anri Sala with Peter Szendy Brown University

The artist Anri Sala will discuss his works and their correlation to classical music with Peter Szendy, a musicologist and professor at Brown University, from 4-6 pm. Sala’s new work and film, The Last Resort, and If and Only If, respectively, will be on view at Marian Goodman Gallery New York beginning March 2.  His transformative, time-based works are constructed through multiple relationships between image, architecture and sound, utilizing these as elements to fold, capsize and question experience. The Last Resort, a 42-channel sound installation, features 38 snare drums, loudspeaker parts, drumsticks, and a soundtrack with four speakers. At its core is a performance of the Adagio of Mozart’s Clarinet concerto in A major, conveyed via drums suspended from the gallery ceiling. In Sala’s new film, If and Only If (2018), based on Igor Stravinsky’s Elegy for Solo Viola, Sala renders Stravinsky’s Elegy as a tactile interaction between the renowned violist Gérard Caussé and a garden snail.
